Added a comment about photo Brake Bleeding Technique 5/16/2016 7:01 PM

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

With the RF arms being removable from the spindle I feel like pinion could pretty easily machine a spindle that had the RF spec for just the arms. Would knock off a fair bit of weight for all the people that complain about the gearbox weight.
Di2 would just be the icing, haha. Simplify the shifter setup a bit.

I would love to see the industry move this direction, get that shit off the rear wheel. It's going to come down to which of the "big 2" is willing to play. Seeing as you'd be killing off a huge part of the market by doing away with deraileurs and cassettes...

Correct on the Astro and khs, Mondraker summum is different though. Geo and suspension. The Astro lower link pivots around the bb and mounts the shock above the bb shell. The Mondraker lower linkage pivot is behind the bb, as is the shock mount. Cero designed the Mondraker. Same company who Cesar Rojo works with, and built the new rig he was on at worlds last year, which I personally can't wait for a company to release.
