Find a Ride / Place to rent fat bikes
« on: January 03, 2013, 09:34:53 AM »
I wasn't sure where this should go so please feel free to move it.  Is there anywhere in Indy to rent a fat bike?  I saw some places in Alaska and Michigan but nowhere around here.  I'm really jonesing to try it but I don't wanna drop a grand on one.

Tech Bench / POC helmets?
« on: December 26, 2012, 09:12:40 AM »
Anyone have a POC helmet.  Specifically the Trabec line.  I want to get one but I havent been able to hold one, or talk to anyone who has one.

Tech Bench / servicing a fox rear shock
« on: September 11, 2012, 07:26:35 AM »
K so I watched a video on how to do this, easy right?  I got the shock off the bike, got the air sleeve unscrewed.  There is this silver bushing that is in my way.  It looks like its 2 pieces that come out of the shock eyelet?  Is there an easy way to remove this so I can service my shock?  I took it to a bike shop last night but they were not sure how to do it.

Tech Bench / adjust avid juicy 3's?
« on: August 23, 2012, 08:48:40 AM »
Is it possible to adjust avid juicy 3's?  I get a dragging no matter what I do.  I realize these are the lowest of the line, am I just screwed?  I have added spacers to try and adjust them, but im just not getting enough clearance between the brake pads.  I bled them last night, but after the bleed I was back to the same issue.  Any ideas?

Tech Bench / can I go to a fork with more travel?
« on: March 08, 2012, 02:05:15 PM »
How much wiggle room is there on going to a fork with more travel.  Say a bike was shipped with a fork with 100mm of travel.  Can I put a fork with 140mm, 180mm?  I know at a certain point that has to throw off the geometry of the frame.  I just wasnt sure if i could go any bigger at all.

Tech Bench / 26 wheels on a 29er

Tech Bench / New front derailur
« on: August 27, 2011, 10:41:53 AM »
I'm pretty sure I trashed my front derailur on the trail yesterday.  The chain scrapes across it on most gears.  I need a new one, but I'm pretty new to this.  I have a 3x9 setup.  Most of the derailurs I've seen are 3x10.  Will this work?  Anyone have suggestions?  I'd like to spend around $60 unless there's a reason I should spend more.

Tried  out the River Road trail yesterday, it was alot of fun.  Its still new so the dirt wasnt packed very tight, which equated to sliding down the hill a bit on the lower half of the trail.  There is also some broken glass in one part of the trail, quite a bit.  Unfortunately my brother fell right into it, Whoopps.  I'm happy to clean stuff like this up.  Whats protocol for that, Im new to this.  Do I need to coordinate with whomever is in charge of this, or just go out there and go crazy?
