When Are New Standards Called For? - Pinkbike Poll
28.99mm mwahahah They´re laughing at you. Laughing straight in to your face. And its not the product manager, or the sales manager thats laughing this time - its the marketing guys. Marketing guys have mugged you all - and the best some of you can manage is talking about their machining tolerances. Yep, you fell for this one hook line and sinker. 24mm GXP works fine in PF92. This is the only real reason for them making 28.99, to fit a bigger axle in a PF92 frame. SRAM actually say this. A BB size that was never needed and badly thought out births an equally ridiculous new axle standard. And some of you openly here applauding this BS. A little piece (more) of mountainbiking died this day.

Different kind of bike, but really just a more expensive version of a DMR Bolt. DMR for the win.

There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
Switchblade for the win. Been lucky enough to not have to buy a bike for the last few years as i have had access to the demo fleet where i work. Man, this saved me a lot of time and money, and helped me find what works best for me. That Switchblade is incredible. "only" 135mm travel, but i can ride this thing like its a full on enduro rig, like my old Mach6. But the ability to switch wheels between 29 and 27.5 (with room for plus or my preference the 2.5 Maxxis) makes this the only bike i need - unless its that rare visit to a Bikepark, then the old Firebird gets a wipe down and run out. Good luck with what ever you purchase, and thanks for talking much sense.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
Pleased that the general consensus is calling BS on this. Once the consumers realise that withholding your support means being vocal and not buying marketing led stuff we can return the trade to where it was maybe 10-15 years ago. Bike people, making bike stuff, for bike people. Not accountants pursuing more margin than last year so they can buy another gas guzzler and a condo by the beach with their bonus for shafting people they never mix with and have no empathy for. With any luck the kool aid drinkers who accept this sort of marketing driven "improvement" and need it to keep them interested will go elsewhere for their fix, and we can get back to durable product thats made with the consumer in mind.

Agreed - The big companies are squeezing it for every last penny. When these companies were smaller and run by bike enthusiasts, not accountants (who work for the global, multinational investment company that owns them) life was so much simpler. Getting too big for their boots and until the consumer votes with its wallet this aint stopping any time soon. :(

well, specifically PF92 due to the lack of clearance for proper sealing. Other PF frames can cope with 30mm axles - there are a number of very good third party BBs that take care of the job. So its SRAM solving the PF92 issue, instead of letting that dumb standard die. The added benefit of closing out third party manufacturers NEVER crossed their mind **sarcasm alert ** :)

"Hypernormalisation" It got Trump in the Whitehouse and Putin has been using this ploy for years.
