Sram brakes, just like any other brand brakes are easy to bleed.
You just can't to this effectively.

8 More Bikes That Could Be Updated for 2023
@dirtyburger: Good questions. Maybelline I was wrong, however alloys have different shock mount/brace between top and down tube.

Slayer had updated geometry in 2021. More towards park - slacker ht, shorter reach.

Sam Pilgrim Signs with Canyon
@onawalk: for example canyon alloy frames seat tube finish is terrible. You cant just insert seatpost without ruining it.

Burnishing the bushings changes their internal diameter. Dimentions of lowers slightly vary as well so you can pair both only having them on the table.

University Student Designs Oleo Shock With a Titanium Shaft
... And buckling forces depends of load at shaft and distance between eyes. Less shaft load = less buckling forces. Bigger distance = bigger buckling forces. That's why frames with yokes breakes shafts. Wouldn't dare to try oleo strut in specialized status...

University Student Designs Oleo Shock With a Titanium Shaft
@pmhobson: In a coil shock spring is between eyelets so the shaft is loaded only by damping forces and buckling forces, not directly by rider or bike weight. It wasnt the point, right, but it is a thing to consider when you develop a product you want to sell

University Student Designs Oleo Shock With a Titanium Shaft
@pmhobson: Take a note, that the piston push a huge column of oil (equal main piston cross section times stroke). This oil has to go somewhere. Lack of space equals problems we had with imperial shock systems, like small overlap between piston ring and bushing in the sealhead so small lateral stiffness and potential durability problems. More over this small shaft takes a huge buckling forces as it takes all the weight compared to conventional shock where load is distributed differently. Even if make oleo strut shimmed, it would be difficult to make external adjusters. Sure- you don't need adjusters if you have shock tuned for you internally, but customers would not accept that.
