Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
so the frame may be a bit too long for some but in 2019 the bike industry will sell back our old frames with "new backwards geometry" standards.

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
I wonder what tomorrow's new standard will be on pinkbike......did that 35mm bar thing catch on as well as intended....man I laughed at vibracore being used as the new bar diameter created too much buzz so they filled it with foam to make it better......lol sensible people just stuck with 31.8.

I feel like this was the starting point for all this craziness, it just became unfashionable to defend them as the new is better brigade were all to happy to chuck away what served as well for all those years. Im not against choice but I guessed they would drop 26 asap to promote there new products. I will keep my 26er as long as poss.

"the current wave of 1x drive-train technology existed, the wider spacing revolution would have skipped right over 148mm and landed on 157mm" I call bullshit on that statement..... you know what I wish we all stuck with 26" wheels....all these constant changes drives me insane. The manufacturers just want to force you to replace your bike asap to get all your money. my 26" wheeled bike has none of this crap and I still pass plenty of 29ers without me having boost or super boost standards...people have been riding harder than most of us without all these constant "improvements" stuffs getting crazy. I said this would happen. For all you " I don't see why anyone complains....nobody is forcing you to buy this" people your the ones to blame for this. If the manufacturers think they can get away with it they will and guess what worse things are to follow.

What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
its because when this crap is stuck on every new bike they can spec it with your stuck with this regardless if you want it or not. That's how they get there products to market these days it has very little to do if its something you actually want or not. Every time they make more options the greater the risk of us not finding the parts we need as mostly the newer parts get stocked and older parts get dropped. So now they build in planned obsolescence of bikes. My 2013 bikes is quite a nice bike and still in great condition but its getting harder to find nice parts for it as it was pre-boost and pre 650b and does not have boost bb spacing of even 1 x 11 gears. Yet its still lighter than most carbon offerings under 6k and and has kashima everything and works great for my needs. I have a 2017 fox transfer dropper on it so I am not against every new product but I hate change for change's sake. Oh well may as well just accept that every 7k bike is redundant after 3 years as this will be the future. Better to buy new and cheap bikes more often and then chuck them away rather than spending big money on a bike only to have every standard change on it yearly.
