    Return of The Pump Track

    I've finally decided that my pump track is at the point that another update is due.

    Anyways, we're at least 70 man hours into this thing, and we're practically nowhere in the scheme of things. We have all 3 major berms ridable, but not finished, and one side has it's rollers ridable and fun, but most likely not complete.

    Although it's not complete, it's already damn fun to ride anyways...


    For some reason the rollers look really small in the pictures, but they're plenty big when you're riding them...

    An awesome ass shot of me going into the rollers



    And me wondering how far is too far back manualing...



    Much fun!!! Such an awesome workout. 5 hard laps will kick your ass.

    It's my dad's bike. He rides it like 10 miles to work every now and again, and people suck at driving so...

    But that bike is just soooo fast on the track that the spoke reflectors outweigh the looking like a loser... My freeride bike is just too sluggish to really have fun on the track...

    Looks sweet but they are a little small. Just wait, every few months they will get bigger, until they are huge. Thats the way it always goes.

    HOW'S the flow and speed?

    You'll figure out after shaping, reshaping, tearing down, etc. that this is a laboratory, an ongoing expiriment. How's the flow and speed of the course so far? Do you plan to build some big berms? And what is the design to the course, what kind of shape (rectangular, etc)? Can u get up on the roof and take a pic of it?

    I've reworked rollers and berms numerous times, even tore out the first try at a crossover transition after realizing I placed it entirely wrong. You're also right about longer travel bikes not working well on the course as well as a hardtail and/or smaller bike.

    Keep us informed.....

    I really like it as of yet. It wants to be ridden fast and smooth, so it's going to be a ton of fun. The big berms are really not going to be neccesary as right now, you can charge them at full speed just fine. It's a big triangle with two alternate lines that reverse the direction. I tried a roof shot, but the trees make it hard, so I'll try it with a big ladder...

    It's coming along sweet, and had me in decent shape for the Banzai which was amazing.
