@ka-brap: just cause some marketing guys said so the article said so doesnt neccisarily make it true. the benifit of the 150/157 hub is flange width. thats about it. 157 sb 157 dh would be rhetorical just different gimmicky names.

@ShempHoward: if your 41 years old and you had a super 8, 25 years ago, as you state, then you would have been a 16 yr old boy, riding a bike that came out in 1998, in 1993( 5 years pre production, yeah right), who had already owned 8 dh bikes by then, LOL! your such a pathetic liar! the super 8 wasnt produced till 1998. https://www.santacruzbicycles.com/en-US/archive/bike/super-8 i give you the benifit of the doubt thought, ill bet you got your memorys mixed up from crashing off a curb!

@WAKIdesigns: i made a comment to this affect somewhere here. the 6 speed cassette on the 11spd body is stupid. ethirteens hub is better. you can just move the chainring/chainwheel outboard without widening the crank... you can get 73 and 83mm cranks that have narrowish q factor. ive got narrow q factor 175 length cranks on my 83/150 am/fr/dh bike right now, works great! 150mm hub with 73 still lines up fine.

@WAKIdesigns: I dont assume or think 157 is great, its unneccisarily wide. 150 is sensible for heavy duty mtb's. waki you are being waki. you are the one making assumptions here. you dont seem to realize ive spent years riding on "all mountain" type bikes with 150mm hubs!150 is great for everything! sure 157 is more obviously without a stronger bracing angle so fuck 157

@zede: 157 is dumb. 150 is sensible, strong but not etranious width . if you dont want wide bikes lets get rid of the 7mm wheel dropout guides, there only there for people who suck really bad at puttin wheels in dropouts anyways. also lets just get rid of rear derrailuers, they're the real problem (besides your lack bike handling skills running into shit) ok ok we can just move the hanger in and use more sleek dropouts.

@zede: I wear size 46 12 or 11 US. I run the narrowest cranks (q factor) that i can get my hands on. I have pedalled thousands and thousands of miles independantly on 73 and 83 bb shells and different cranks. there is such a thing as less than ideally too narrow. there is also wider than ideal. its sort of a feet together or swinging knee ankle buckling thing on the wide side. also adding width to bikes that should fit through narrow gaps in big rocks and stumps is not a good thing. but having strong wheels is a good thing. 73mm bb 150 rear end i dont have heal rub issues. i point my feet parrallel to the direction my frame is pointed! ive never seen a duck or a pidgoen pedal a bike well. and i like my knees to work on their intended axial paths! most of these issues are probably from people with biomechanical issues, poor technique pedaling, and or poor placment of their foot on their flat pedal (derp derp) or poor cleat setup!

150/157 is already adopted by multiple companies in trail bikes and has been used in most dh bikes in the last 12 years, its really nothing new! infact i think part of the reason 148 happened is cause sram probably didnt want a bunch of us just using our dh wheels on frame up buuilds and wheel swapping instead of buying their new CRAP. there are some really dim people on here, sheese
