What's the Deal With SRAM's DUB System? More Questions
Mmhmm. A lot of those answers they provided may provide an "answer" in the language they're allowed to use, but man... As someone who was a little cheeky about the PB hypocrisy train the other day on the first DUB article, I can honestly say, this kind of half-service only sets me more in the middle.

SRAM's New DUB Cranks and Bottom Brackets - First Look
@TheRaven: Yep. That I'll buy. Heck, I have a perfect example. CAD, Revit, and other drafting software - much like Windows and it's miserable compatibility issues - forces companies like mine to pay for seat-count subscriptions to force updates we wouldn't normally pay for, because we just don't need them as often as the creators think we do. We're being sold to, and you're correct, at least it's good that we recognize it.

@TheRaven: ...And since we keep BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS, who's winning that war? A decade ago: "26-4-LYFE I'll never change wheel sizes!!!" Crickets now, boys.

@treekilla: Yes, you're very right. Also, in two years, at least one of the two of us will probably be riding this setup. *SHRUG*

@TheRaven: I'ma beg to differ that the vast majority of MTBers will ignore or boycott this... What's your tire size? What's your current BB type? What about stem type and bar OD? C'mon fellers, when a mfgr moves to a new number / type / gizmo, we all go eventually. Frankly, the gall is misplaced. Don't complain that they chose something new unless, Like @WAKIdesigns, you actually reference a good reason to keep one old standard or the other. Waki makes the case that 24mm should have been kept. He makes a fair point!

@Racer951: As an engineer? Heck if I know! I don't like that .99 dangler either, but my point wasn't arguing their numbers choices, it was pointing out the rampant hypocrisy in everyone's pissy comments.

...Yes. By changing two options into one, that is, by definition, a simplification. I'm not sure how there are this many people who don't see 2 > 1 being simpler.

All you dorks complain when there's a new wheel size, tire width, or axle standard released, but OH MAN let's lose our mind because a company chooses to SIMPLIFY things? Pot calling kettle, yer black. (Yes, as an engineer, I can see how that .99 is really cringe-inducing for the autists among us, but c'mon, simplifying a system gets them in hot water? How?)
