Video: The Gas Hole
Nappers and sleepers keep napping and sleeping. There's no room for you on dawn patrol.

Recap: Kona International Rookie Games - Pumptrack Challenge
Well each bike will accelerate a little differently. I'm talking about bikes that are appropriate for that kind of riding, obviously a 29er will be more difficult to throw around, not ideal, but you can pump just fine on one. You are correct about terrain, though. I'm assuming all tracks are smooth, which they are not. Of course bigger wheels will be faster the rougher the terrain is.

Recap: Kona International Rookie Games - Pumptrack Challenge
Different transition radii are not better or worse for different wheel sizes or wheelbases, that's a common myth. The modifying factor is speed. If wheel size affected pump, then large transitions, such as on a vert ramp, wouldn't be pumpable on bmx bikes, or even skateboards. What matters is speed. A pump track designed for generating easy low speed for little kids will have smaller transitions with closely spaced rollers, a high speed track will have larger transitions spaced further apart to accommodate generating higher top speeds, but will be more difficult to generate lower lower speeds on. This course looks like it's designed in the higher speed range so some of the kids had to pedal.

Cannondale Caffeine Frame Medium USA made w/Rock Shox Recon

$350 USD
I only used this as an inbetween frame for a month. I always intended to build it up as a secondary bike but it's just been sitting around for years, so time to sell it. Made in USA! Not many bikes can sport that sticker anymore. This has F4 graphics, but it's the same frame the high end builds used. Very light, very stiff pedaling, but compliant in the saddle. Feels like a steel frame when seated, very comfortable, but snappy and fast when you put the power down. The fork is a Rock Shox Recon U-Turn adjustable travel 95-140mm with lockout. Subtract $100 if you don't want the fork. I will include 1.5 to 1-1/8" headset reducers, Shimano SLX front derailleur, and SRAM X9 front shifter at no extra charge.

Custom Spank Spike 35 Evo Wheelset, NS 157x12 rear, WTB 20mm

$385 USD
The main feature of this wheelset is the Sapim CX-Ray spokes which are the strongest on the market, while also being almost as light as titanium spokes. Not many people besides wheel builders will understand this, but the point of them being bladed is not for aerodynamics, it's that they lay flat against each other resulting in a wheel that is laterally stiff under cornering forces, while still being vertically compliant under impacts. This means that your wheel doesn't have to be tensioned crazy high like a bomb ready to explode to perform well. The wheel is stiff where it counts, but won't taco or flat spot when you hit a rock or case a jump when a round spoke wheel would. I only rode this wheelset for three days, so it is in excellent condition. There is one small dent in the rear rim near the valve hole, but it is not near the bead. Must have been from a rock bouncing off. These wheels have never been out of true. I will include the Magic Mary tires, which also only have three days of use, but have been sitting for a while. 9 speed ultegra cassette $40 extra 203mm Hayes rotors $15 each
