These are in my neighborhood (Forest Hills, NY). Just a short section. Best on steel fixed gear bike, but not bad on carbon either.

I like to mountain bike, but I'll never really be that good at it. Just not quite brave enough to tackle the tough terrain.

I ride wheels with the same set up (16/20). While I never find the need or desire to curb hop, I've had no problems riding the bike on normal pavement. I'm about 165lbs.
