    Today while riding with my camera, I stumbled upon...

    A jump spot I didn't know of! And it's *gasp* a 5 minute walk from my house only!

    Spots near the water usually are very nice... good soil, and with some buckets, you can keep everything watered .

    OT: what type of fork is on the bike?

    is that a Marzocchi dirt jam on your bike? if it is how is it, if not which dirt jumper is it and how is it?

    dirt jumper 3. It's just fine, handles what it needs to handle. I usually like my forks very stiff and it fits the bill. It'll get replace by a dj1 over the winter, rebound and compression adjust are a fun thing to have, plus a white fork on that bike will just look sick.

    And, when it get's really hot outside, you can go jump in for a minute!

    .

    I imagine that there are probably many small jump spots around most large and even smaller metro areas. Over the years I have sniffed out about twenty spots around the DFW area and I bet there are many more.

    Rideak's got it, it is a bench, it was probably stolen(that's my guess anyway) and brought to the spot. I have no clue who build those, but I did go and put in some shovel time when I came back from school today.

    No it isn't Fooly, it's a spot from your neighbours up north, in icy canada where we live and igloos, make tuxedos with penguins and eat our pet beavers.

    Edit: That was completely stupid and pointless, but I just had to write it.

    Well the second jump, the one that looks a lot sketchier than the other one, has got most if not all of my shovel time a few days ago, I remade it a new lip as well as made the landing much straighter, watered it down, and did it again, and let it sit that way(rain is forecast today, so any watering down is left to good ol' mother nature)
