Fort Harrison State Park / Where is everyone?
« on: July 25, 2019, 07:30:02 AM »
The Ft has been very strange this summer.  After the rain finally subsided and the trials ride ready I expected tons of riders.  But over the last several weeks I rarely see more than one other rider on the trails and no more than a handful of cars in the parking areas.  Last summer the parking was overflowing during the same time periods when I ride.  What's up?  Trails are looking pretty good.  Get out and ride.

Tech Bench / Creaking rear wheel
« on: July 13, 2017, 08:25:20 AM »
I have a Mavic Crossride rear wheel that is making creaking noises.  I have narrowed it down a bit using the following methods.

1 - It creaks if standing next to bike, applying the rear brake, and trying to move the bike forward and backward (with a little weigh on the bike to keep the tire from sliding).  I think this eliminates the chain and cassette.

2 - It creaks if the bike is upside down.  Again apply the brake and try to pedal.

3 - It does not creak when riding unless I am putting some torque on the drive train.

I am ready to tear it apart and see how the bearings and internals look.  Does anyone have experience with these wheels and have suggestions on what to look out for?

French Lick Resort / French Lick Resort - Bike Lockers?
« on: July 18, 2012, 09:05:26 AM »
I am staying at the resort this weekend and would like to know if they have a good secure place to store my bike.  I am happy to put it in my room if that's allowed but I doubt they want dirty mountain bikes going up and down their hallways.  I don't really want to leave it on the back of my car overnight either.

Thanks for any and all replies.

Tech Bench / Broken spokes...lots of them
« on: March 17, 2012, 07:18:37 PM »
Last year I broke 4 spokes on the rear of my FSR (stock DT Swiss wheels).  I replaced the spokes as each snapped.  After two rides at TRTP this spring I have already snapped two more.  In fact, while replacing those two spokes today another random spoke broke.

What are my options here?  Have someone true the wheel up?  Re-build?  New wheels?

Tech Bench / Switching out rear shocks (size questions)
« on: May 11, 2011, 10:55:53 AM »
Hey everybody.

I ran across a good deal on a used Fox Triad from a 2008 Stumpjumper FSR (specs are 7.25x1.75")

I have a 2008 FSR Expert with an x-fusion 7.0x1.6" shock.

Can I compensate for the quarter inch length difference with sag settings?  What does the 1.75 vs 1.6 figures refer to?  Basically - will this shock work on my bike?
