Of ebooks and karma

Stoked: Lots of people are ordering Welcome to Pump Track Nation, and plenty are telling me they dig it. The ebook was a lot of work, and I’m glad people enjoy it.

Not stoked: Three times as many people have downloaded the PDF as have paid for it.

If you stole my ebook: You better build a sweet pump track and let the local kids rip all they want. That’s your karmic duty. And you might want to pay up — just to be safe.

20×60 pump track?

Just read the article in the Aug. Mt Bike Action and was wondering if my yard would be big enough to build a pump track. It is 20″ by 60″… I could build the berms out of 2*4 and plywood (I’ve built halfpipes and bowls) My yard would be perfect for a ramp but as I’m 36 I just want something a bit tamer and more applicable. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Pump track plans are in the works

Hey Lee,

This video is great!


We are putting in a pump track under a highway overpass to keep us out of the Texas sun. Have you drawn a blueprint of the course in the video? This art is evolving fast and we would like to leap frog a bit from the current Best Standard Practice. Shoulder standing is good. We have 40′ x 50′ marked, but could grow either dimension if needed to get to BSP.

Thanks again for the book and the site,
