    huh? Who the hell am I hating on? And have you ever even been to austin? I also didn't realize you had secret surveillance video of me riding to come to the conclusion that I have "no skill"...

    It's a pretty commonly known fact that you can ride steeper trannies on a 20" than a 26"...look at BMX riders using concrete traffic barricades as quarter pipes. Those jumps are built for BMX bikes...and 20" riders are the only people I have ever seen at 9th street doing the really huge, steep sh!t.

    for the record, you mentioned nothing about tight trannys. you plainly stated what i quoted. i've built dirt jumps for over 20 years, and have heard the numerous complaints about steep lips being a "bmx" thing and have heard all the excuses...

    Fair enough...by steep lip i meant ridiculously steep transition on the jumps. I could have clarified better, but you don't have to jump down my throat about it. Mostly because

    denton texas bmx trails

    As of July 27, 2010, these trails are still in an somewhat-ridable state... . I was just out there today and I think that with a few days of work, they'll be good to go again. If anyone has the courage to try to rebuild these with me, let me know. I would really like to have some trails to ride here in denton. I'm going to get some pictures later today to post on here.

    Dude talk to Casey Bowman on facebook... I think he's up in Denton. He's a stupid good bmx'er (almost Dew Tour) and he's building in your area... looks like he's digging solo, too. I bet he'd welcome some help throwing dirt.

    In that first pic http://forums.mtbr.com/attachment.ph...8&d=1280277451 I'm noticing the hole on the left. Looks like someone was trying to dig drainage for the pit. Just a friendly suggestion: either that drainage pit should have been off to the right where it's not creating a crater in an otherwise rideable area . . . or expand and blend/transition that hole so you can ride through it, or even make it a future line.
    it's good to think strategically about where to get dirt from, so that the end result is a work of architecture that actually looks good, rather than a moonscape with one rideable jump line.

    also, sent u a PM

    these pits were feeble attempts to ward off ATVs years ago...I'm sure the new guy will agree with how much damage the ATVs have done in that regard.

    yeah there were tons of ruts and a lot of the ramps were little more than hills because of it. we will definitely have to figure out a good way to prevent that from happening again.

    That place still looks like it would be fun to dig/ride - probably not too much work to make it a decent set again. I haven't jumped for a couple of years either ... I thought they were going to tear that area out and build more apartments?
