    If it’s only for jump/pump track use then why do you want a 66 degree ish HA?? 😀

    Get a BMX. Riding a short steep bike will sharpen your reflexes and make your enduro bike feel like a DH rig (in a good way)!

    Agree with both ^

    Even though I managed my 1st faceplant last week riding a BMX (not used to) on a pump track (not used to).

    It’ll come with time…

    I use a dialled alpine. Short travel forks, shortish stem and not too wide bars. I built a pump track in the back garden. Best thing i have done in ages to improve skills

    Funnily enough i built up a 29er and it is easier to flow around the track even if you don’t get as much speed or pump. More fun on the alpine though but after 7 mins i am shot, pooped, and spent.

    Nice GEDA. I started planning a pump track and then got lazy and didn’t finish it.

    Might have another crack at some point.

    Would like some more gravel and rocks to build bigger. This is the film that inspired me to build mine.

    Nice video geda, looks fun 🙂

    How about this DMR Wrath? I think they were made for pump track riding.

    BMX would be best though.
