What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
The bottom line is going from 30mm to 28.99mm spinal has nothing to do with seals and everything to do with making 30mm incompatible.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@mnorris122: There is already 30mm. You really think they needed to make 28.99mm?

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@Fix-the-Spade: Was just about to write this. Everyone please upvote the OP's comment so that we're all aware of the bullshit that's going on. It increases the price of components and makes you're existing eventually incompatible. "But it's not compatible with existing SRAM and aftermarket 30mm, 24mm or 24-22mm stepped bbs that pretty much every crankset on the market currently fits. It's a calculated move by SRAM to freeze out third parties from bottom bracket sales, if only for a few months while they go into their CAD files and make the inner races 1.01mm smaller."

Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
If I wanted the geo etc of the Mondraker I would definitely buy one. I'm sure it's an amazing bike for Enduro racing.

@Boardlife69: Forces and anti-squat isn't enough.

Humbled: Mike Levy vs Richie Rude in the Gym - Video
@atrokz: I suspect Nino would top 20 in an EWS within a year of trying. Richie would get lapped by Nino in any WC XC race. I also think you would be surprised by Nino's peak W/kg not to mention his over/unders. I doubt any EWS racers would be within 20% of him. When you get to that level in XCO you're simply genetically diffferent

Scott Genius 920 - Review
Best place for them. I had zero issues when Specialized did the same. No rubbing across the top of the BB or through cable entry/exit holes as the suspension compresses, lower friction. Anyone who is seriously worried about a couple of cables that will deflect away from impacts need to go and look at that $300 thing with a chain running through it that hangs off the back of the bike.

Scott Genius 920 - Review
@matadorCE: I personally think the market or marketeers have decided that full suspension bikes shouldn't squat under pedalling loads and are coming up with all sorts of garbage to prevent it (and usually causing other issues in the process). I have the current Specialized E29. It has 165mm of rather linear suspension and low anti-squat yet I run it open all the time because I can pedal smoothly at high cadence from riding a road bike. In fact I bet all these guys who complain about bikes being too active would be able to ride anything if they did a couple hours a week on a road bike/trainer. IME most pure mountain bikers can't pedal for shit. Also Scott sells a lot of bikes to old dudes in the alps who spend all day riding up and down mountain fire roads. They're probably scared of deviating from that customer base too much which is a shame as the bikes are close to being about the best on the market IMO. They certainly have by far the best XC race bike.

There is no such thing as a free lunch. Add more anti-squat and you get more pedal kickback. The other option is a more complex design like Yeti's with its instant centre manipulation or a counter rotating link like Santa Cruz but something always ends up being compromised like too much anti-rise or a less than ideal rate curve. I would happily ride this bike without the TwinLoc but they really should have allowed for more room to run shocks with remote IFP's. That's probably the one thing that would stop me buying one. They should loose the third bottle mount in the process. Still, geo looks great in a medium. Maybe 5mm on the rear centre for perfection.
