    It would be cool if Rocky chases you around on the track

    I haven't really kept up with the 24"s since I switched to MTB. I've been wanting to try a Sunday Model-C for a while Model C AM « Sunday Bikes not sure if it would be good for a pump track though,I think it's designed more for street and park.

    The DMR wrath looks nice New DMR Wrath could turn you into a pump track god | Bikes | Chop MTB but it looks like you would have to order from the U.K.

    The SE Floval Flyer would be a good bike for a pump track SE Bikes | Elite Race Series | 24" Floval Flyer

    I have a Freeagent Devil 24 Free Agent Devil 24 BMX 2009 - Free Delivery It's a fun all-around bike,but it weighs a ton.

    Good luck and happy shopping

    ready to put in the weeping system for the jump bowls, modified french drain system.
    good resource here: EnerMac Weeping Tile

    am tempted to tie a rain water collection/storeage system from the roof so i don't have to use city water for wetting down the track and watering the garden around it.

    That's the 26" version of the Wrath,low BB and short chain stays,looks like the geometry is different on the 24"?

    I have been staring at this while having my coffee...wondering where I can find an extra $600 lying around.SE Bikes | Retro Series | 26" OM Flyer Longer chain stays than the Wrath,and a bit more old school BMX style.I think I need to go test one of these!

    Very cool. Curious to find out how well the drainage system works. Just an elevated rain barrel would be helpful for watering. I use one for my veggie garden set up with a drip irrigation system - just open the valve and forget it (less useful for wetting the track, mind you).

    I wish I had the space, time and knowedge to do something like this in my backyard.

    Let me ask you something - how easy is it to "tweak" the pump track to add different rollers, jumps etc in order to switch things up? Is this something that once built, will pretty much stay how it is or can it continue to evolve over time with relatively little work?
    Strava made me do it....

    I use a second one to keep the pond topped-up. It doesn't generate a ton of water pressure.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    the only constant is the two big berms, the rest can be altered to best suit the space. (tweaking a track is a must no matter how well you plan/build). expansion has been factored in with several line options which can include wooden features throughout the space. i even thought of building a funky garden shed with the roof being part of the track, will do it eventually...

    Ha ha after a 10 hour day on a jumping jack you would never want to see another one.
    Trust me I had many days as a D-1 operator in my early days of commercial construction on one.

    Ohhhhh the D-1 is a fun tool when you need it....

    But I think I'd rather use the less aggressive plate tamper option

    What do your neighbors think of this? I have always dreamed of having this in my yard, but I am not sure what the reactions of my neighbors would be haha.

    I am on the verge of acquiring a dirt jumper/urban trials bike and getting back to my BMX roots. It will have platforms and I will ride baggies at all times while riding on it.

    So can I come test it out on your pump track sometime. Puh-leeeeaaassseee?

    "BMW roots" ???

    Me thinks this is a Freudian slip, and a good one at that.

    I think a Nummers pimped out with red blingy bits and 24" wheels would work in the Sprocket's backyard.
