First Ride: 2021 Pivot Trail 429
@dylansanderson2004: It sure does! I'm just saying bikes can be designed differently, such that the access port is not needed.

@dylansanderson2004: It can help with dropper cable routing, but there are ways to facilitate routing without that opening.

@tkrug: Yes, it's an odd combination of options that indicates a transitional phase. The ability to mount an internal battery could be to accommodate: • Those who want to use legacy Di2 systems • A known future need • Options for future needs Wire ports would be present if Shimano had any intention of continuing with a wired system. Hopefully, Shimano's lost market share from being slow to adopt 1× drivetrains has taught them to act quickly on emerging developments and they'll release their wireless systems soon.

Suspension service-An informal survey
@RunsWithScissors: I should add: By my observation (informal, small sample size), shops that make an above-average effort to become competent in suspension service and advertise this is an area of specialization quickly dominate the regional market for suspension service. I think there's small to moderate demand for the service, being served by an extremely limited supply. Personally, I'm reluctant to have the job done at a shop that seems half-hearted about it and the shipping costs of sending suspension components halfway across the continent change the entire value proposition of servicing the dampers. No hesitation, though, if a local shop has factory trained techs, cuts the cost in half and the turnaround time by three-quarters by eliminating shipping, and has a [L=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKodtNFpzBA]machine that goes "bing"[/L] (or a vacuum bleeder).

Suspension service-An informal survey
@RunsWithScissors: Yep, that's accurate. In the case of the fork lowers, the intervals have been around ten hours because it noticeably reduces friction.

Suspension service-An informal survey
I do my own servicing for air springs and fork lowers. These are simple, require no proprietary tools, and can significantly improve performance - especially fork lowers - so my service intervals are a lot more frequent than factory recommendations. Damper overhauls are where I turn the work over to others. Most jobs require proprietary - or at least uncommon - tools. I stick to roughly the recommended service intervals for this work.
