SCS FAQ - READ THIS FIRST (then just email me I guess)

Posted by Jerry Chabot on

Hi Specialized bike owners! I have generated a lot of blog content on the SCS situation over the past year. So much so that it seems to have generated more questions than answers. Since I still get 10 emails a day on SCS questions from people looking to get wheels on their Specialized Diverge or Crux (gosh I wish I sold ten sets of wheels a day...), I think it is time for an FAQ post that I can point people to, or hopefully avoid some email traffic. << You can still email me, I don't mind! We are small and personal and helpful and respond to all emails in minutes. Go ahead, try me! (and then maybe buy some wheels from us, ok?)

SCS and Axle Standards

Posted by Jerry Chabot on

Hi Everyone. Lets to try to unravel the many mysteries of the bike industry and their various "standards".... or lack there of. There is no current lack of standards, they are just all different!

The most important thing that I want to address here is Specialized SCS. This is their "short chainstay system", which in concept is very valid. Specialized is an engineering company that sells bikes, I am an engineer that rides bikes, so I get where they are coming from. Not sure I agree with the implementation in this case, but that is OK cause we have it figured out.
