1 Question - When is Change Worth It?
Just look past the large manufacturers that consistently make these changes. It's not hard to see who's making this stuff up as they go along and who actually rides their own bikes.

1 Question - When is Change Worth It?
"Planned Obsolescence" is a widely accepted marketing tool used by most large companies, bicycle manufacturers included. It's a very real idea and it's why a 1965 Chevy 1500 will loooong outlast a 2015 Chevy with the same levels of maintenance. The problem lies deeper than most will look, in that, companies are forced to find ways to sell... sell, sell, sell. Products aren't made because they're better, or they serve some new purpose, products are made because they will sell. Numerous amazing designs have fallen by the wayside because they didn't sell large numbers. This is a problem inherent to the capitalistic greed system that forces everyone to think that "the more I have, the better off I am", which is faaar from the truth.

"The problem is in part that you have big corporate machines whose marketing engines rely on them feigning some kind of technical innovation." - BOOM!! Nail, Hammer, full contact!
