why don't more people work on their own design like EZRA?

Because it takes some engineering skills and a fair amount of money to develop a new technology for hubs. Most companies just take a basic design, and tweak it. That is why most cassettes are so similar, basic hub shell shape is about the only difference, aside from a few companies out there (Tree, ezras coaster, Primo N4FL etc).

There are too many smaller companies that cannot spend the cash to develop game-changing technologies.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

kis bike co seems pretty small, but they have that half flangeless cassette hub.

but then again, that's not really game changing...

Freecoasters with stock female axles seem to be gaining a little popularity. the stranger coastersaurus has one too

I always thought this too, but I also saw it as the chance for one company to better, or perfect, another company's design. Theoretically, let's say this freecoaster is solid, and easy to maintain, then KHE will have to step it up, and so will every other company.

That's what it's all about now in the BMX industry. The marketing.
E.g. The way Cult has put itself out into the market was super successful, other companies like Sputnic and Cardinal weren't too good at it.
