A primer on how to build a pumptrack

8 01 2016

We’ve had a soft spot for pumptracks for some time now.

And we’ve checked out some nice ones over the years.

Whether pumptracks can save your marriage…or provide therapy when its on the rocks…I’ll let you decide.

But it’s hard to deny their appeal.

Providing a fun session, regardless of your skill level, is what keeps riders coming back again and again.

Not to mention, their versatility…from city-council supported facilities to rider-built pump tracks in the woods, all the way to tight setups in the backyard…you can pretty much get a pump track going anywhere.

What we haven’t talked about is how to build one…

While there are pumptrack tips scattered throughout the web, this video by Phil Kmetz does a great job explaining the thinking behind it and some good guidelines to follow when building your own pumptrack.

Granted, you may not have access to some of the tools that Phil uses but you can still get a lot out of it.

Heck, he even explains how to make “wife-friendly”…so maybe it can save your marriage after all!
