    Oregon? If so, I was under the impression that most everything was built by the guys in the local hood river bike shops.

    Alright guys. This was built by the GFRA (gfra.org)

    I have seen an action shot on westsidefreeride.com.

    The landing before it is for a ladder bridge drop. Most would consider it a "large" ladder drop. It is a blast and has one of the best landings around. Like butter.

    The gap for the jump is about 25 feet. The kicker is steep (or so I'm told.) All in all it is not for the weak of heart. When I'm there in August I'll try to get some action shots on it. I have been told there are some much bigger hits than that in the works near the same area...

    no action shots? ya i know, that's sort of lame. right after i took those pics, i hit it and came up short. i broke my rear wheel on the knuckle. that was a fun walk out. after that, i couldn't bring myself to hit it on my dirtjumper. i'm sure it would have worked just fine though. i was surprised how much fun i had on my dirtjumper after my banshee went down. this of course is all at post canyon, right outside of hood river, oregon. we rode this new trail the boys just finished as well. i think it was called "glory days". a beautifully built a-line type trail. it's short and the jumps are small, but i wouldn't mind riding it all day long.

    I have seen the much bigger hits, and the landings are tall, but suuuuper long. I don't know how they will be to hit. Last time i was there i was on my HT and got the crap seriously kicked out of me. and those new jumps look like they could be kinda painful on the landings with a HT. But anyway we shall see when they are done. Next time I am out at post i think that i am gonna go for that big gap. Looks a little more doable now. would also help my nerves to have a fs tho.

    I'm excited about all the big new doubles at Post. I can't wait to meet someone up there with a camera.
    Here's some shots of the construction.
