Way cool concept pumptrack bike.
One of the coolest things I’ve seen in years.
File this under: Why Doesn’t Every Town Have One? Truckee, California has a crazy beautiful new place for riders. It’s more than a pump track – it’s a BMX-style pump park, with starting mound, lots and lots of lops, and a strider loop surrounding it for the groms.
Adding to the ranks of boutique bicycle builders, Paul Budnitz builds these elegant city bikes from titanium and CoMo steel. Components are from Chris King, Thomson, Paul Components, Phil Wood, and other high end makers. No suspension: just a cantilever frame design, wide tires, and the forgiving nature of steel and TI.
These are damn pretty bikes. When I’m rich and famous, I’ll get one and let you know how it rides.
I’m such a sucker for concept bikes.
