First, moderators not sure if this would fall under "General BMX" so feel free to move it. Here is the deal. Just bought a house, I got the go-ahead from the Mrs. to build a pump track/jump section in roughly a 60x100'' ALMOST completely flat section ... more »

Thanks for the input guys. More curious about the bottom bearing receding up in the steer tube

Just for the record, everything feels fine. No play, rims/bars turn fine the bottom bearings are recessed up in the head tube
