How to build and ride the best pump track on Earth — Yours


By Lee McCormack

Through www.leelikesbikes.com I get lots of questions about designing and building pump tracks. I answer many questions on the site, but I thought it was time to put all of the essential info in one place. This ebook contains never-before-published information about designing and building pump tracks. If you spend less than 10 bucks, you’ll spend less time building — and more time riding!
