Well played JT! There’s nothing wrong with being prepared, hey? I reckon major parts stayed in use for longer before all of the hub spacing changes a while back now. Back then, I purchased a set of nice custom wheels with hubs that I planned to lace to new rims for years to come, only to have most bikes switch to a different standard within the next year or two. I also never saw the point of 15x100 and remember chatting to a wrench from a big brand about how unnecessary it was. Now all trail bikes are on it… Bikes are so good though today and heaps has improved since then, so I let it slide but I wouldn’t be opposed to running a 20mm front axle. My dirt jumper still does too!
