Matt and Jeff Weigh in on the Least Useful MTB Innovations

In this episode Matt and Jeff discuss the results from a recent survey that asked, “What is the least useful mountain bike innovation?“.

For those who missed our survey, the top five answers among nearly 10,000 votes were:

  • Electronic suspension control (22%)
  • Electronic shifting (17%)
  • Flip chips (14%)
  • Internal cable routing (12%)
  • Hip packs (7%)

Commenters pointed a few choices we didn’t include in the survey, so we talked about those as well.

  • Steering stabilizers and limiters
  • Tire inserts
  • 20mm thru axles
