Exclusive: Intense Cycles Re-signs Shaun Palmer
Palmer will do 2 things. 1. he puts an american in charge of an american team, at a time where america really needs someone with pedigree to take the reigns. There is a ton of talent in the states as witnessed by gwin and others on the WC circuit, but they need someone at the helm to grow the grassroots sports more and put juniors on the map so they aren't lost to baseball, basketball and football. 2. it doesn't matter how old palmer is, or how much the game has changed, the guy has a desire and determination to win that can never be extinguished. there's a reason he is (was?) the most decorated x-games athlete for so long, and held top titles in multiple sports. the guy just wants to win, and he'll do what is required to do it. Having a coach that understands that, and can help teach others it, is huge. Palmer as a mentor would be amazing. He's gonna be like your a$$hole grandpa who tells you suck it up buttercup and that "your best" isn't good enough. He's gonna push that team hard, and thats what is required if you want to stand on the top step.

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.
