    You can build a very nice ramp for very little money.

    You'll get better answers over in the DH/FR board area. Also, www.iespell.com might help you a bit.

    Personally, I'd build one before I bought one.
    Check out some of our local hills: CDRC (Capital District Road Climbs)

    oh yeah. i meant stupid. the ramps that i saw looks like they need drills to make, which i dont have. are there any really really simple ramps that wont break or collapse easily?

    How about a 2x10 laid over a cinder block or two. Not the safest, not the best, but if you want cheap that is it.

    Just make sure you have support in the middle, that you check it EVERY jump, and that you don't let any litigeous bastards anywhere near it....

    ramp

    probably the best idea for a ramp: Grab a shovel and find a hill of dirt and make you a good angle.
