Tech Bench / Re: 29er's. Steel or Aluminum, which is a better ride?
« on: August 22, 2012, 11:17:16 AM »
Thanks for the replies.  Looking at the Jamis Dragon
a Niner EMD build up, Voodoo build up or calling Biker Bob in
Ohio.  Now I just need to sell my Fuel Ex to pay for it.

Tech Bench / 29er's. Steel or Aluminum, which is a better ride?
« on: August 16, 2012, 10:36:24 PM »
Looking for answers on 29er frames.  Planning
on building a 29er but not sure which way to go.
Is steel or aluminum better?  I am also limited to
1,500-1,600$ on the build .

Camping is pretty good, I think that they have raised the prices for camps sites.  The mountain biking I don't know if I would suggest it unless you are up for some serious climbing and nasty decents.  You can access hoosier national forest from this area but their is some long rides in store for you.  I have done the rides, but they were horse rides and they seem to last 6-8 hours.

If you are looking for the new out and back trail "Park Ave." it will be just after you cross through the glass creek section of Muscatatuck. 
It is just before the start of the climb to the ball field.  Look to the right and you will see an opening for new trail system.  Signs will hopefully be availble this season.

How old is the bike?  Are you the original owner?  These are the two most important questions.

Tech Bench / Re: gary fisher parhina or trek fuel ex8
« on: May 27, 2011, 11:09:51 PM »
I think that would depend on what year the Fuel ex frame was and what year the Gary Fisher was made.    You would also have to most likely change the fork unless you wanted to ride a 100mm fork up front because that is most likely what is on your Fisher.  You could find a sweet deal on a Fork and a rear shock and are willing to shell out a little coin for the parts swap you would most likely get a better ride out of a full suspension bike.

Hope this helps. 

By the way I have a Fuel Ex and I absolutly love mine.  Would not change a thing about it.

Tech Bench / 36 tooth for my fuel ex 9.
« on: April 23, 2011, 07:20:19 PM »
Looking at new cassette for my ride and I am wondering if a 36 tooth will work for a 26er set up.  Has anyone had luck with this or even done it?  I saw some place that it puts too much torque on the hub, is this true?

Guy, thanks for the visual map.  

A very BIG THANKYOU to the Jennings County School Corp. Athletics department for all their efforts today.
Almost 90% of a technical trail build was finished. 
With a couple more trail days, we should be able to open more trail a Muscatatuck.

Both, all trails at Muscatatuck are considered multipurpose trails.  Some more walking than others.  This will be a out and back trail that will allow walkers and riders from the community to access the trail system from another side of the park.  We will be calling it the Park Ave. Trail
because of the location to Park Ave.  in North Vernon.  The trail will be about .56 miles and slightly more technical than others at Muscatatuck in the past builds.  It should be a fun day of trail building, if you are interested in working, the above information will get you where you need to be.

Their will be a Trail Day this Saturday from 8:30 to 12:30.  Trail work will be provided by The United way of Jennings County
and any one with trail work knowledge would be a bonus.  If you would like to work, meet at the Visitor Center around 8:15 and we will shuttle workers to the work spot.
