Optimal as in absorbs terrain irregularities best, resulting in smoothest (closest to straight line) trajectory of the rider.

Hmmm, so let's ignore pedaling efficiency. The question still remains relevant.

comment Should I be able to 'manually' rotate the headset?
@Blam, whatever, first step is to conduct the experiment outlined above and from there we can work out the cause.

comment Is 11- 34 rear cassette necessary?
I was referring to the cassette, as that is a big piece of steel. And I concur the difference cannot be felt, just wanted to add this for completeness in the "The (only) down side is".

Another drawback is increased weight. Don't get me wrong, I frown at anything below 36 on an MTB.

comment Why/How should I bed in disc brake pads?
By pouring water, you are effectively qunching the rotors. Although I suspect the temperature is not high enough for any noticeable changes.

comment What are the negative consequences of not bedding in disc brakes?
I am still not convinced - forbidding it is the easiest. Likewise, they do not say "tighten your brake caliper bolts to X Nm", they say "have the bike repaired only by an authorized mechanic" (general claim, can look for references if doubted).

-1 for "If normal riding achieved that SRAM would not have a specific procedure." : bookofbadarguments.com page 34. For example, it could be that SRAM want to avoid people seriously hurting themselves on their brand-new bike, because they do not know that pads bed in with time. Easiest solution: "do not ride bikes without bedded in pads".

comment Is my bike getting ruined?
To clarify - if you don't lube the chain immediately after washing, it will rust (a couple of hours seem to be enough). I don't have solid sources, but I feel that the oil displaces the water and protects the rollers immediately.

This ^ concerning 10sp chains. I have re-used 8sp normal pins without issue. The rule is to never cut the chain in the same place twice.

Shimano provide special pins for connecting their chains. It is claimed that re-using a normal pin will weaken the chain significantly (and I believe them).
