Ask Pinkbike - Shimano XTR Brake Tips, One-By Chainring Choices and the Wrong Slopestyle Bike
i've been running my saint m810's in the fashion described for 4yrs without issue. No blown seals, no rebuilds required. Just bleed and new pads when needed. it isn't something i would be overly concerned about in terms of shortening the working life of your brakes. also i wouldn't use the fluid to force the pistons out and pads closer in the bleed cycle, it seems like a difficult way to get to the position you want. advancing them with the brake lever itself (which pushes fluid from the reservoir down to the piston) uses the system in the manner it was intended, rather than trying to create pressure on the reservoir port by pushing fluid from the caliper and back.

Ask Pinkbike - Shimano XTR Brake Tips, One-By Chainring Choices and the Wrong Slopestyle Bike
best thing i've found for advancing brake pads on shimano (saint, xtr, etc) is to put a box wrench or allen key into the brake piston area that is slightly thinner than the standard brake block. you then can advance the pistons and bleed the brakes without worrying about the pistons going too far. Putting tape on the wrench or allen key is helpful to avoid scratching the piston face itself.

if you want a proper review of bike computers (or other training devices) just go to dcrainmaker.com Ray is basically the guru for all things tech, and his in depth reviews are the best you can basically find on the internet.

Bitches Brew - Is Mountain Biking the Pinnacle of Human Athletic Performance?
how does F1 possibly get neg prop'd? You want to talk about racing, speed, consequences, being on the bleeding edge, show me another sport that compares. When F1 athletes do triathalons in their spare time to train for F1, or race WRC in the off-season because they are bored...it goes to show just how physically and mentally fit you need to be.
