#!markdown Great article! … f@$%ing fantastic article! So good to see that were finally starting to see Sram for the money hungry scumbags that they are! Im not so naive that i dont understand ALL bike companies want/need to make money BUT, whilst the industry in the last 5 or 6 years has made some massive advances in usable technology, its also produced sooo much unnecessary crap that has been 100%driven by Sram and is 100% designed to make us spend money. The icing on the cake as far as unnecessary crap goes is the boost rubish. I mean really what shite! And yes shimano with their odd bolt circles has been guilty of it too but 20 odd years as a bike mechanic has led me to the conclusion that Sram is just overpriced poorly engineered lifespan specific rubbish. If only campagnolo stepped into mtb. Sram to me is the iphone of the bike industry; designed to fail. Lets also look at tyres. They've gotten so soft now that literally a couple of solid days of dry rocky steep riding and they're half shot!! WTF! Absolutely ridiculous! Ok im done now, apologies to all ☺
