Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
and the reason to isolate racing I have stated quite clearly, if you bothered to read (stretch in this audience, I know). To trim down the useless circus of marketing.

@bman33: Dropper post rarely used racing either. And they don't trump it for broader audience, plus tires are now on entry level bikes and make cycling more enjoyable for more people.

@bman33: balderdash. None of any useful innovations depend solely on racing. In fact, the biggest innovation of the recent years are high volume tires - most entry level hardtails I see locally are plus - and that ain't used in any racing discipline. All what an equipment formula will help with, it will be less of drastic shifts, and more of a gradual healthy progress.

@bman33: lack of rules? Lol. DH dictates what kind of pants to wear. Rules on equipment for competition would not affect you one bit, except more development focus would be on bits that you do care about. Many sports no less cool than MTB do just fine with competition formulas.

@bman33: absolutely yes. If you don't like road, gazillion other sports doing just fine with equipment restrictions for competition.

There is a reason many sports mandate types of equipment used. To stop chasing every fad and make it accessible to everyone. Road cycling is better at that, it will take time and preponderance of evidence to make new bits legal. I would say MTB industry would benefit from this, before somebody rolls out on 36ers. Yes, it will make it faster for a sponsored athlete. No, it would make zero sense to push it as a new standard. Just standardize on 27.5. And maybe some other bits such as range of head angles and what not. All sports are doing with formula racing schemes just fine.

@DrPete: nonsense. I can buy a new bike. But planned obsolescence for perfectly functional systems will eventually be self defeating. Plenty of examples in other industries.

Here you go sheep. Propaganda served with charts and spreadsheets. Go buy new stuff.
