comment Can I change chainring size on a dirt jump bike?
@Kibbee: clearance is important in modern MTB as well with low BBs. Have you checked the recent 1x movement? I think that clearance overshadows the minimal chain friction savings (which overshadows the weight savings).

@Kibbee: Nice link. But smaller gears mean less weight and also more clearance.

large chainring = less rotations, more power, ends up really fast. small chainring = more rotations, less power, ends up slow

comment Why are Avid brakes so difficult to bleed?
Maybe they are just bad brakes. That's what I hear in my local trails. Also have a look at bluetoad.com/publication/… ("we completed the avid bleed process and we where pleased with the performance for short period of time before they began to act up again.")

comment Air in hydraulic brakes after bleed
Remove pads and gently push pistons back into their housing. Do it with a plastic tyre lever.

Long travel forks (180mm+) and shocks for long travel bikes (180mm+) rarely offer an option for lockout.
