Here's an honest question. Not trolling. I'm genuinely curious. Like it or not, SRAM is addressing an issue. Until this the company produced cranks with two axle sizes - 24mm and 30mm. 24mm works for GXP/BSA. 30mm works for BSA, PF30 or BB30 but not for BB92 with acceptable durability. 24mm spindles are heavy or flexible.  So what is the solution? Sticking to 24mm or 30mm doesn't look great. Obviously we are taking SRAM's word for it that this reduction in diameter by 1.01mm actually has an impact on sealing and bearing durability, but only time will tell.  For the sake of argument let's assume the claims are accurate. If that is the case, how could the current issues with bottom brackets and spindles be addressed without a proprietary system or new standards? What could SRAM have done differently in the face of current crank/bb issues?
