There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
@rjohnson450: that's not what he's saying. It's good that they're building bike to fit you guys, but they should be as an XXL addition to the range, not just for the sake of it. 'Longer, lower, slacker' is just the new 'lighter, stiffer'. I think at some point it will balance out and find a happy medium. I just hope it's not a the expense of bikes for suitable for people. Maybe once the price of tooling CF moulds comes down they'll keep the wider range of frame sizes. Maybe if the race for longer, lower, slacker slowed down then bike designs would have a longer lifespan which would mean that they could afford to make the extra sizes due to not having to scrap the moulds and start again each year?

@Tmackstab: then make aluminium bikes as well. Carbon isn't the 'be all and end all' that manufacturers want us to believe.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
@freeriderayward: I agree, pretty much all our SRAM BBs were switched out fairly quickly (because they didn't last very long) for cheap but reliable Shimano or more expensive but everlasting Hope BBs.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
What about if they made the BB external? That way they could in theory make the bearings and seals as big as they want while keeping the spindle bigger. Also they could use metal threaded BB cups that screw into the frame to create a nice strong interface that wouldn't develop play.

Hope Cuts Price on Made-in-England Carbon Bike
Except as far as I can see they've been selling them as fast as they can make them.
