Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
@vernonfelton: Thank you for acknowledging this comment :) I work in the manufacturing side of cycling and I know many of these standards are very difficult for smaller companies to do. It requires a lot of adjustments, new SKU, marketing, etc which is very expensive. Boost does not outweigh those expenses for most smaller companies - the aren't selling all kinds of new products because of it.

Bike Standards—How Did We Get Here?—A Podcast
Whats most interesting to me is that they didn't get a chance to ask the people who actually brought the standard. SRAM and TREK. Specialized tried to do a new wheel standard with SCS which failed miserably (however in concept its actually not too bad - just horrible execution). The new standards have much less to do with the Hub than it does with the Chain line, Tire Clearance, Q-Factor, and Frame Stiffness. The hub is a poor byproduct of frame engineers. They didn't start with the hub. They didn't even really design any wheels when they were doing it. The rear wheel just becomes marketing garbage. Because the biggest companies in the industries make the standard everyone else must follow. The people above can have opinions but ultimately if they want to be in the industry they have to follow what the others do. If i9 didn't make boost they wouldn't sell much - whether they like boost or not. These new standards are not really an improvement at all on the rear hub. Front hub however is great!

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
A 3mm wider triangle isn't stiffer if the spoke tension is lower. If it has the same spoke tension it is, however then the wheel is out of dish.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
@Bustacrimes: agree'd - I think MOST independent wheel manufacturers like American Classic would have preferred the wider spacing. But while Trek / Niner / Santa Cruz / Etc make Boost frames it forces companies make Boost. Since they had to make a new "Boost" wheel why not think of the best way to work within the spacing. If logic was applied as you stated - Boost 148 should have been skipped which I bet most independent wheel manufacturers would agree!
