Sorry for the doom mongering, normally i'm more in favour of 'who cares, get out and enjoy riding' attitude, but this has upset me quite a bit. Sure offer a new wheelsize (27.5) with arguable benefits/negatives, as in many other sports there are different tools for the job (i'm once again for one bike to rule them all, but never mind..). But 'letting us know' that all our expensive bikes, nor not so will be without parts later down the line.. I for one am about to finish gathering monies for my dream build, but where does that leave me if i'm about to drop more money than i doubt i ever will on what the manufactures have decided is antiquated..
