comment Is this issue possibly related to a defective damper? (Fox Evolution 2013)
Have you been riding the bike since 2013 and has the fork been serviced regularly? Fox have a 1 year warranty and that's conditional on maintenance. Get the fork serviced and seals replaced.

comment Maxxis Hookworm Tires
Technically they're bi-directional but aesthetically like all Maxxis tires the name should be on the drive side.

comment Is this brake cable alignment correct or problematic?
Other issue to be wary of is using bb7mtn with brifters. Bb7r (for road) uses a different amount of cable pull than bb7mtn. While not ideal it can work just will require finding the right solution online.

Yes you're right! I wasn't across the fact they had expanded GX to 10 spd sorry. Corrected now.

comment What is measured by hub size?
This is the common convention for expressing hub size. Unfortunately new standards are always being developed that will change this. Pictures of Specialized's 2016 Crux cross bike came out the day before this question was asked showing a 135mm thru axle hub to fit a 130mm road drop out spacing.

comment Double XT with XX1?
Are you in NZ? If so ask the bike mechanics thread on Vorb, there's a couple of guys who know 11 speeds on there.

comment Replace rim because of 4 broken spokes?
Could simply be that the labour cost of replacing 3 spokes starts to get near to the cost of a cheap machine built wheel.

comment Repair cut in sidewall of tubeless tyre
As most are also suggesting the best trailside fix to get you home is a tyre boot and tube. At home a proper clean up of the area, removing all the sealant and an old school rubber puncture repair patch (vulcanizing fluid and all). Some people believe in super gluing the hole back together before patching, I've done both ways and not seen any difference.

comment How do I prevent the Hydraulic Disc Brakes on my bike from rubbing?
Removing brake fluid is not a fix that should be suggested unless you are explaining more of the process. There is a large risk of introducing air into the system in many brakes or taking out too much fluid and should only be attempted by someone who understands what they're doing and is comfortable doing it. removing the pads and resetting the pistons should also be included as a solution.
