    Re: Official non-motorized motorcycle thread.


    Pump track and park bikes these days are pretty vastly different in term of Geometry. If you're talking just ride around a park, air some tables etc then pretty much anything will work, but when you get in to more technical park riding, a BMX race bike will feel like a limousine. Generally, the race styled bikes are lower top tube and stretched geometry with longer rear triangles. The park bikes are much more stout and "square."

    I'd probably feel more comfortable riding a park bike on a pump track than a race bike at a park. just my thought.

    Haro is actually surprisingly big in the race scene these days. I have a Pro XXL Haro Citizen Carbon Frame and carbon fork sitting in a box under my desk that I've been trying to sell, but no one wants used carbon...

    I was, in no way, talking about race bikes.

    Being 5' 4", it seems I want something along the lines of 20" TT max. Am I overthinking this? I just want to ride the pump track and hit the park to improve my MTB skills.

    Well I’m confused. I thought ALL bikes were race bikes.

    Yeah, you’re over thinking it.

    haha, Off the ledge I come. I see a few on CL that may fit the bill, then. All I remember from the 90's was that chromoly was the hot shit as was 3pc cranks. On the surface, these bikes really haven't evolved that much.

    Is anyone interested in doing this? I did this 2 years ago with arcy and it was a blast. I'm planning on being there this year as long as the weather cooperates!

    It's basically a ride of the Boston Marathon route starting at midnight the morning of the Marathon. There are thousands there every year. It is the night of 4/14.

    I’m supposed to work a 24 that day. I’m already taking the day segment to do the mix tape ride. It’s the midnight bit that gets me. Way past my bedtime.

    Totally get that. Really cool ride to experience once if you have the chance though.

    Anyone ride Landlocked Forest? Heading up to my buddy's in Woburn Sunday morning and looks like a good spot to turn some laps beforehand.
