Schleyble Top. Calling it a table top is a disgrace to all the OG riders who could make it look good. Also, does he only have one Benz? I'd assume he has a US one and one for Europe...

Made me do a double take when I saw it in person yesterday. Looks cool, reminds me of the old 2.7s and 3s from rampage back in the day. Rear tire is pretty well touching the rear tri though

C138_20160514_bds_fort_william_mg_9455

God damn big yellow birds....

We do this at work pretty regularly on problem brakes, if we have time to let it sit and don't necessarily feel like doing a full system bleed on a new brake, no need to replace brand new fluid.
When you pull the lever it pushes the pistons out filling the caliper with fluid. Think of the system as separate from the reservoir (open system) vs something like avid elixirs (closed system). The system is now full, by letting it sit over night any bubbles in the system will float up to the master cylinder. When you take the zip tie (rubber band) off, the master cylinder piston (plunger) pulls back and draws those bubbles through the now open port into the reservoir making a lever bleed more effective. Instead of just releasing the lever you can physically push the pistons back into place, this helps push the bubbles into the reservoir.

Hope that's somewhat helpful
