Get a frame with a good, durable finish. Problem solved. Powdercoat works wonders, check out Orange bikes for instance. Hard anodising is another finish that keeps well. It's not rocket science people.

Settled what standards? Seems to me there's a new standard hub width or wheel size or bottom bracket standard or chain guard mounting every few months. And I like to see innovation, but it's going too far. What need is there for a 148mm hub width when we've had 150mm for 20 years? It's just greedy moghuls trying to make our possesions (that we paid thousands of pounds sterling for!) obsolete so we have to buy new (may they be cursed with a terminal case of boils).

@iqbal-achieve: "Without his influence we'd all be riding around on 680mm bars still."? No, we wouldn't. I was running Renthal crosser bars on a BMX stem for years before 'the Industry' caught up.
