Ask Pinkbike: Remedy or Slash, Large frame - short stem, Should I Cut My DH Bar?
too much stack height? Flipping your stem is also an option if its +/-6 deg or whatever

Ask Pinkbike - Crank Woes, Coil vs Air Shock, and Which Nukeproof?
Air vs coil: as much as there's more configurability with an air shock, if they weighed the same as a coil shock I would imagine the majority of EWS racers would be on coil? It's the 3-400g weight benefit which I think is more significant than air offering better performance in differing conditions

Ask Pinkbike - Single Pivot vs Four Bar and Internal Routing vs Water
Split pivot design is single pivot but advanced by two ways. Technically it's an actuated single pivot with floating brake. Actuated = it has a linkage driven shock, which allows you to tune the leverage rate through the suspension cycle more easily than on a shock with a fixed mount on the swing arm Floating brake = the brake mount is separated from the suspension bar linking the wheel to the frame. Easier described in action: when you pull on the rear brake the rear wheel digs in and tried to drive the suspension. By moving the brake off the swing arm you're meant to isolate this effect to some extent. And yes it's a single pivot because the wheel is on one bar (bar 1) which directly connects to the frame (bar 2). Hence all single pivots are two bar, irrespective of what other bars are floating around the place driving the shock/ mounting the brake. A four bar linkage is one where there are four connected bars with the frame as one and the wheel on another which is NOT directly connected to the frame. As the article states, this allows the suspension designer to address stuff like chain growth and brake jack in a more sophisticated way. However when you look at the performance of split pivot in DH (Trek Session, Devinci Wilson) and Enduro (TMo's Trek Remedy & Otons Devinci Spartan) it's clear the differences are fine.

Ask Pinkbike: Upgrade an Entry-Level Bike, Zee for XC, Bracing for Autumn's Chill
Plenty of cheap hardcore hardtails around 2nd hand. Charge Blenders can take all sorts and are a bomber spec so will be fine 2nd hand (as long as you're not taller than 5'10")

When you only want 80% goggles, you can take your 100% goggles and a roll of masking tape and mask off 20% yourself. This means you can easily revert back to 100% next time you're on it too.

33 Enduro World Series Bike Checks
I've not tried the Float X but the main benefit should be heat management. If you find your CTD losing its damping through a long stage, the piggy back reservoir should help dissipate and share the hear across more oil. If not then you're lugging extra weight to look enduro
