The last time we tried this "fantasy bikecheck", it didn't work. Why do you think it would work now?

I wouldn't mind flowing through a nice smooth track at speed. There dosen't have to be tricks involved to make riding fun, although you could do tricks on the track haha.

Agree, it would be fun, although I don't think the jumps would have much kick at the top.

If you go to a good track, there are some pretty large jumps...

At the track I ride at, there aren't HUGE jumps, but a few pretty nice sized ones...There's also an awesome six-pack with some good sized jumps

No, crutches help your triceps tremendously, and it is a bit of cardio. But, I don't really use my crutches anymore... they are just for show.
