I think...

...I should start running brakes again.

Why did I just HAVE to cut the mounts off my frame a year ago?

Anyone have an old frame that's intact and has brake mounts that they want to sell me?

This is mainly because I discovered a spot that's really good for digging trails (pretty loose sand though, so it's a lot of work, but it goes fast), and I started on it a couple days ago. It's like impossible to go the right speed on dirt without brakes, so it's a *****. I'm not a talented enough rider to ride dirt brakeless, street and even park are different.

E-mail Solid or FBM and ask if you could get some brake mounts and cable guides Then weld them onto your bike, or have someone that can do it!


Sandy dirt sucks, my old spot had it. You really just gotta wait till winter to build most of the stuff. Carpet comes in handy as well to put on jumps that wont really clay and stay packed.

carpet works well after rain also to put over puddles.

No.

You bucket the water out, then put dry dirt over the wet mud, and rake it, then pack it. Repeat as needed.
