Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
Why don't we just jump straight to 200mm spacing and be done with this changes of a couple of mm at a time with someone saying "wider is better"?

@guiribiker: you are correct about them being the parent company of maxxis. I believe they sell more tyres worldwide than any other company due to being simple and cheap. And for reference CST does not stand for Cheap Shit Tyres.

Pinkbike Poll – Electronic Components on Your Mountain Bike?
I'd gladly see electronic components be developed, and spend my money on them, if it means the bike industry stops obsessing over changing wheel size and hub spacing....... just saying!

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
Dear bike industry, you are killing yourself by trying to get us to buy a new frame, fork and wheel set every couple of years through pushing a new size either diameter or spacing that is no longer compatible. I didn't rush out to buy a 29er, or a 27.5, or a boost bike. I still run three 26" bikes. I'm not opposed to any of the new standards, but I haven't bought a new bike because I'm waiting for you to all settle on something that isn't rapidly going to become obsolete, because I'm not made of money. You haven't yet settled on one. I haven't bought a new bike in each new standard, no. I simply haven't bought a new bike, where I otherwise would have. I will continue to run a couple of ageing bikes until they literally can run no longer, unless this all settles down. If it all settles down and it happens to be 29ers with boost then fine, I will run it. I have tried them, they're fun. I will then enjoy my new bike. But I can't commit the finances to it until you figure out how to make the core 4 most expensive parts of the bike NOT become obsolete. I am not alone. TL;DR bike industry is going to hurt itself severely cause people cannot afford to continually upgrade.

Slapping' Turns on the Identiti Mettle - Video
Ely. Home of identiti. Flattest part of the UK. Sounds bonkers. But having grown up there, coming from a flat place really gives you an appreciation of what big hills can really do!
