More Bike Checks From the Albstadt XC World Cup
But I agree, odd that they don't have any higher end pedals or anything clipless. Thought they'd be all over that with a proprietary cleat interface. #notbitter

They do. Just under the Truvativ Flag https://www.sram.com/truvativ/component/pedals#sm.012mnmqw170mef8104s1znfrq7hn4 All Sram need is a frame, a headset, saddle, grips and some tyres, then they could sell the full Sram bike. Imagine that; Super-Hyper-Boosty-McBoostFace and compatible with no other manufacturers products. I called it first.

To be honest, I'm fairly sure he doesn't give Edam what the haters say.

Yeah, I'm sure the illuminati is out to force people onto large wheeled bicycles... Comparing big oil companies to the mountain bike industries is comparing apples to chocolate oranges; it's meaningless. I fully expect to be downvoted into oblivion by the very subjects of my rant. Such is life. But if these people spent less time getting worked up on forums and more time buying 26" components, maybe their beloved wheelsize would still be around. Food for thought. Peace out one and all.

Let's face it; 26" died because not enough people were willing to put their money where their mouth is. The fact is that businesses respond to consumer demand and if everyone in the MTB world truly did only want 26", it would still be around. But you have to bear in mind that the #26forlyf crew on Pinkbike represent such a small percentage of the wider MTB world and they are outweighed by those who do want new things and who do want to see change. People wanted new, so the industry gave it to them. Bigger wheels became more popular and that's where the focus shifted. If 26" truly was what people wanted and were buying, the industry wouldn't have moved away from the flow. Lots of people on Pinkbike seem to claim they want a new 26" straight steerer Totem, coil sprung, 180mm travel and whatever. But the wider community doesn't want this and therefore it isn't profitable. Businesses aren't going to keep making products at a loss to please the handful of people out there who refuse to accept change. But then again, maybe we should all go back to riding full rigids with 150mm stems and cantilever brakes. No change for anyone! No innovation ever! Death to improvements!

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
Take spares then? If you're riding hard at a park and aren't taking spare pads/tubes/tyres I have no sympathy.

@nojzilla: That isn't what I meant. I wasn't referring to personal switches to different wheelsize bikes. Of course for the average rider, different sizes work better or worse based or conditions, terrain, fitness, whatever. What I meant was that if racing does go to bigger wheels, the wider riding community will be unaffected. Your existing 26/27.5 bike won't be any less fun just because a WC was won on a different sizes wheel.
