Indoor bike park.

Starting building an indoor bike park. Been using white Poplar for wood and aluminum. The rails have been the trickiest to get the holes drilled straight for the poles to go into wood. COLD here so I thought this would be a fun way to waste some time. I can already imagine how big the collection of Flick Trix bikes is going to get. Halfpipe and funbox with rail coming soon. Best part is my 6yr old Daughter wants to play with it.cool

No bikes yet waiting for them to show up, come on Fedex!

Re: Indoor bike park.

For a second, I thought we were in for some fun in your garage.
Then I noticed it's all on your bar...

Re: Indoor bike park.

Bought a couple of wood Tech Deck ramps, Was cheaper than building one. Amazon $7.56 for the box's, $17.95 for the Half pipe. Way cheaper than the local stores at $30.00 a piece.
