they built a portable bike stand to mount their bikes on after unloading them, so they wouldn’t have to lay them on the ground or against their vehicle. The brothers then built a multipurpose trail rake that trail-building crews began to buy. Now on a roll, and with the approval of California Custom to use its plasma cutter, Kris Carroll designed and built Fast Rack’s first bike-park skill-course feature. It was just a simple triple rollover structure, but when the Carrolls installed it at a local trail, the word spread and they began receiving requests to build more. Skip forward two years, and Fast Rack Modern Cycling Solutions has become a full-function bike-skills park developer. Both brothers are skilled in the design, layout and construction of parks, and have added wall-rides and other assorted skill features to their catalogue. With metal-based frames, their products are more durable than customary wood-based features. Fast Track has built skill parks at Siloam Springs City Lake Park, Fayetteville’s Gregory Park Skills Park and the NWA Arkansas Children Shelter. The company has even shipped its bike skill features to Palm Beach, Fla., and Woodbury Park in Minnesota. The business continues to grow as more bike trail contractors and clients discover their products.
