Cool + easy, I'll give that a try!I am no expert with discs but I will say that mine made some strange noises temporarily. Went on for a week or so (about 100 miles) and I did the "loosen the calipers bolts, squeeze the lever and then retighten" trick and it simply faded away. Not sure if that method had any impact or it went away on its own. I also had minor rotor/pad rubbing which came on out of nowhere. I did the same thing and it went away. In that case, the above "loosen, squeeze, retighten" trick works really well to re-center the pads.
It's kind of hard to tell because it's so brief and when I'm coming to a stop - if I (ahem!) squeeze harder I just come to a stop and, well, then it stops. It really doesn't feel like it's a pressure sensitive issue, but again - the point where it's happening is difficult to experiment on...At the risk of further entendre, if you squeeze harder, does the sound go away?
Sorry I missed it; which park are you at? Looks like a blast. Being in FL I only get out to ski in the winter but can imagine the same parks and trails have to be a blast on bikes. I have talked with the lift operators about what it's like in the summer, at Park City they say you load the bike right on the lift. How does that work?Rented a big boy bike for closing day at the park.
Whitefish mountain resort (formerly Big Mountain). Not a huge bike park and not as extreme as the videos I see at places like whistler, big still pretty neat for an afternoon.Sorry I missed it; which park are you at? Looks like a blast.

I've not had that happen to me in the past, even without the bolt on the valve however seeing how tubes are constructed, it seems like this could happen easily. Are you on tubeless tires?Lots of rain here over the last 24 hours so I switched to Dual Sport for afternoon ride. Went down to bike rack and tire was flat.
Didn’t take any forensic skill to figure out what happened. Is a tear at base of stem common? Screw on rim might have loosened allowing some movement?
