welcome to whistler. where you can ride the lift and drink with everyone from fortune 500 CEOs, gold medal olympians, pro skiers/riders, to your local grom who just took top step on BC Cup last weekend. its the best part about whistler, no one is a celebrity because there is just so much damn talent in one town.

the fence sucks, but after last year it was inevitable. at the end of the day whistler blackcomb holdings needs to reduce any liabilities it faces, and that means doing everything it can to avoid a lawsuit; be it from an idiot drunk falling off a rock, or a rider getting seriously hurt because someone does something stupid. the problem is crankworx is a victim of its own success. when it first started as the whistler gravity festival you could pretty much walk the course unimpeded, hotels were easy and cheap, and the riders were everyday-joes who just shredded. as its grown more and more distance is given, its become harder and more expensive to get into as an athlete and as a viewer. its still an event largely by riders, for riders. but sponsorship and money has changed how certain things are managed and run. just be happy the UCI doesn't have a say in things

33 Enduro World Series Bike Checks
have you thought about sending your shock in to a custom shock tuner and having them put in a custom shim stack? best of both worlds.

not true. they do the same thing but they do it differently. and whether which is right for you depends on your application and intended use. all else equal (suspension design), there is more adjustability and modulation on an air shock just due to the design. A coils curve is predetermined based on the rate (again suspension design held constant). The newer design on reservoir's for air has fixed a lot of the problems with frothing that occured previously under high heat and speed. But a heavier rider banging on a big track may still push an air shock to a point where coil is better. weight is generally lower on air vs coil.

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.
