We at Dieselbikes have decided to get an early jump start with our B&T’s trail plans. This was an un-announced trail day to the general bike community due to the nature of the trail build. Our goal was to replace an aging technical trail feature (TTF) instead of physical trail maintenance; which in general requires only a few trail workers rather then large groups of volunteers.
Yesterday Dieselbikes members went out and replaced the aging Teeter-totter that is so well known to the local biking community. As many know, this TTF was nearing the end of its duty cycle and was becoming un-safe to repair. This TTF was originally fabricated and donated to B&T’s by members from Bustedspoke. It served 5+ years of duty with hundreds of mountain bikers enjoying its technical challenges.
In its place, Dieselbikes fabricated and assembled (on site) a new Teeter-totter that will continue to provide the same technical challenges the first TTF had created. Fabricated from ACQ Pressure Treated lumber (environmentally friendly), the TTF features a Cedar ladder deck and stainless steel pivot shaft with carbon-steel inserts. All load bearing supports utilizes hot-dipped galvanized lags with steel inserts which are sealed from the element.
We want to thank the local bike community for your support with our trail efforts. Your donations and/or purchase of Dieselbikes apparel and local movies have made this trail feature possible. We will continue our efforts to replace, rebuild, expand and maintain TTF’s within the B&T’s trail system. If you have any questions, comments and concerns, please feel free to drop us and e-mail.
