 One of the coolest builds for a video I've seen, and it seemed to just go on and on. Very nice job!

 He turned a spine into a giant rhythm line, such a cool idea. I hope there's a POV of that somewhere.

 Agreed, that was fun! I came into it being salty about the concept of a "downhill pumptrack" thinking it paradoxical, then I just realized I'm a dbag who is hangry and pissed off because its been raining for days and my local trails are closed. Awesome video, very creative cool idea!

 Ha ha! Looks like you DO get the Snafu crankset on that model, but it does say “Available Soon” at the bottom of the page. Who knows how long that could be. Might have to settle for something else.

 does hyper actually sell a mountain bike yet? I have never figured them out as a brand.
  • 2 0
 Pretty sure they are one of those brands like Mongoose or Huffy that sponsor riders who rider other brand bikes with sponsor decals applied.

 I believe that Niels Bensink is an artist. He was there for this build and design. The man builds like 90% of the velosolution tracks in Canada. He needs to do more of these builds for us all.

 What happens to these places when they're done? Like could I somehow learn where it is and go ride it?

 Sure, just ask m.pinkbike.com/u/SomethingBikes
He was just there, apparently

 Imagine how much water it took to build that.

 Interesting choice not to be on a DJ bike for this edit, looked like fun on a FS but would be even more of a banger to ride on a DJ to get that PUMP!!
