    Here you go. I was just too lazy to repost all the images I posted in this thread, which is very similar to your request.
    And be sure to look at Jedi's stuff; his stunts are insane.

    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    here are a couple...

    I built this with Phil Saxena for the Champery WC 4X



    I built this for Eric Porter in Kranked 6


    another angle of the same jump


    more jumps from Kranked 6



    a dirt quarter for Porter in Evermore



    stuff in Morgins, Switzerland of www.bikepark.ch




    building shots



    the "Araignťe" or Spider digging avalanche debris off of the trail



    while the digger is there....might as well handplant the bucket. (from the movie Evermore)

    Alright- here is a link to our website for our newly formed organization. A small group of us got together and propsed that the city fund and let US build a park on city property near an abondoned gravel pit. So far we have nearly finished phase 1 which consists of skinnies and a teeter totter, next will be a DH trail, and a FR trail w/ North Shore style influence. Check the video out, it shows all of our features which have been built so far, scroll down and you can see photos of all the features.

    www.arfreeriders.com

    I'll try to find a picture of our first huck spot and I'll post it next.

    And for the comic relief:

    Groomin' a new line yesturday...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~

    200 acers in Aldie VA = $6.2m

    used Stihl's BR550 = $175

    Lake MX 59 shoes = $90

    Ya'll missing me go ass-over-tea-kettle, Gingerbread man, roll down the hill = priceless

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~
    Enjoy the archaic Paint file for the visual.

    Will post photos once the real jump / drop is finished.

    Hey, you earned it. I give credit where credit is due.
    I thought I was doing pretty good with my little park, but it pales in comparison to yours. Hopefully it won't when I've been at it for four years like you have!

    E2,
    Props to you and your crew as well, for the stuff you are building. I'm really digging your woodwork. Looks like you guys overbuild your stuff as well. That's the only way to go. It keeps you from doing major structural overhauling every few years due to the dynamic stress loads that mtb's place on them. One word of advice though....waterseal/rot proof that lumber as soon as you can. For the decking/riding surfaces I'd recommend inexpensive flat paint mixed with some sand. For the rest, a wide paintbrush and used engine oil. The incentive with used oil is that it's FREE!
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    In 4 years, I don't think Kenny and I will have anymore room left on his lot. LOL.
    His lot is only 210 feet(about 65m) by 420 feet(135m...and 1/4 of that is his house and yard); unless we decide to extend out and build some stealth stunts on some of the adjoining undeveloped (and won't be for a long time) land.

    Jedi-so you're Robert Naylers buddy huh? He sent me that link this week and me and everyone else at my shop were in absolute awe while viewing it- both from the riding perspective and from the building perspective. Great job man- all of that ladder work is absolutely killer- plenty of lines to choose from, and enough variety to keep you happy for a long while.
    For what it's worth I think the helmet cam vid is best because it gives you a true perspective of what it's like.

    The majority of it, i had some of it laying around.. but when home depot has a clearance on wood, usually warped doug fir, you can buy a lot for very very very little.. Like a buck and a quarter for an 8ft 2x4

    I agree, the riding over here is amazing. I am from Arizona/Colorado and here is the best I have seen. There is lift access with great trails every 20min. by car.
    Yeah, the digger is like cheating

    run in TODAY

    4 months ago when it was first built it got wider due to the inability of people to land in a small area.

    Not sure this qualifies under "jumps, drops, hucks, or ladders," but it's my small-scale, backyard version of "skinnies and teeters with a few decent beginner wooden skills structures".........will be adding one more line when the frozen tundra of Idaho thaws sometime in Feb or Mar. Most of the trails are pretty smooth here in Boise so this was created to put a little more "brain" back into our riding.

    My backyard

    I have been building little stuff for a few months. I think I enjoy the building as much as the riding. I also feel like I have improved my riding a bunch.

    Hi Fish,

    Thanks for sharing; this is fantastic to see. You win the award for the best mtn biking back yard of the century.

    If you can't keep the rubber side down......at least smile for the camera!

    I could not have said that better myself. Seeing all these backyards turned into bike parks is a good feeling. Definitely keep up the good work everyone.

    Jimmi,
    Your backyard looks really good. I love the log skinnies. Nice improvisation.

    jfsh,

    I'm digging the rocks in your yard and especially how you've integrated them with your ladders.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    Thanks Dirty D. It seems to have been dubbed "Sherm Park" by a few. I have not had enough visitors yet to really lock in a name for it. I have no idea what it will look like by the Spring.

    Thanks Mike. The rocks were already there so I just used them in my plans. A lot of the fun is trying to figure out how to best incorporate the granite. I think it makes my back yard unique.

    dude you guys are so lucky you have yards ao other places you can build that stuff. I live in MD and ther are no freeride places i can find it sucks and i can't get my parents to let me do it in the backyard.

    Wow, some impressive stuff there, incorporating those rocks. I stopped riding backyard stunts after I tore my acl on an easy dismount, but would be tempted to ride what you've built...

    Oh, and SMT - it's i before e...

    I like that. It looks kinda like a gap-jump/step-up hybrid.

    1. You build up to it by doing larger and larger and larger stunts

    2. You just say **** it and go for it. (Recommended) The feeling after you do this is incredible.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. You must've been reading my mind.

    Although there is another feeling you can experience after doing something you were initially scared of: 'why the hell was I so scared to do that in the first place? Man I feel stupid!'
    Haha.

    Although I cannot find any pics or vids of it for the life of me, the "hamster wheel" is by far the sickest stunt I've ever seen. I didn't build it but I'd sure like to meet whoever did.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    I did one the other day that was even scarier once I was doing it then It was before! Afterwords I told myself I'd do it again, but it was even scarier knowning how sketchy it was.

    Also the Hamster wheel was in NWD 3 I believe?

    Maybe its not little height wise, i'll give ya that but it was wayyy easy to overshoot, a friend of mine did exactly that and slammed a tree, broken ribs and punctured lung was the result... decided to take it down before anyone else followed the trend!

    35 seconds or so in to the video, its not my video.

    I would be scared that I wouldnt pull up high enough & endo over the edge...I guess I better practice on some smaller stuff...

    If those rungs were any farther apart, that could be considered a trials obstacle.

    I started working my way up by stacking up blocks of wood one at a time and bunny hopping over them in front of my house. I worked my way up to a good height and that changed everything out on the trail. A solid bunny hop technique with flat pedals helps in many situations.

    The only bad part about this thread is the fact that it's been pretty cold and windy outside, so I can't ride... Looking at these pics is giving me "biking blue balls"

    Cold and windy shouldnt be a problem, snow and rain is an excuse.

    Ive ridden in 60 mph winds and it was still fun. Doing jumps in 60 mph winds is a different story.

    Oh yeah, ice is also a factor. Call me a wimp, but I absolutely HATE riding in the wind. Especially when it is so bad that you have to actually pedal while going DOWNHILL!!!

    Found this trail last year, searching for a place to ride in Taiwan. It's steep and someone has done a bit of work to it but everthing falls apart here quickly. It was doable last year after a little re-supporting but was still sketchy. I was shocked to see how bad it got in just 1 year. Most stuff here looks like the first pic, below. There was one that had some fresh wood on it. Nothing huge but atleast theres no snow.

    The panoramic view of the second shot makes that drop look mega epic.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    A stepup gap with a bridge for the wuss line.





    Here is a vid. About 3/4 of the way through the riding stops as the video included the local police checking us out .

    Making sure we weren't having illegal races. He thought the area was cool and asked the normal who built it . They were giving us props from the air by siren. Just not the normal wale

    I have always looked at it but for some reason the landing does not look step enough. nice though. and good camera angle, looks like you got it up from the bridge.

    Awesome to see other riders builds. I dig to build even though my stuff is not as big but its the only way I find I can progress. Other builders make their stuff so big there is now way of progressing. I have one question regarding marzocchi tech departments shot of the wooden drop, how does one get the distance with such a flat run out? I have been experimenting with compressing to lighten the bike and with pulling up on the bars like a bunny hop styley. to get that distance is it pure speed?
    I will take some pics at the end of the week when I have finished my more of my new backyard shenanigans. I need help shaping a double which I can also manual through to practice my pumps.
    I just want to ride.

    That's what drove me and my buddy to start building our own stuff. We started freeriding just over a year ago and the spot we found had 5 decent jumps but all to big for us to start and progress on. So we went higher up and started with our first jump as small one that could be jumped any distance or speed.Then on and on and on .

    This was the first jump.



    and our newest which is 40ft to ture landing and around 35 where I hit in this vid .

    <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="https://www.youtube.com/v/Hqeh8B9ubkM&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/v/Hqeh8B9ubkM&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

    Crab Legs

    I decided to call this line "Crab Legs" because it's good but takes a bit of work. Still need some more work to get the flow right but it's rideable as is....

    I guess I'll have to take some pics of the drop we have under construction and the pile of dirt soon to be the first kicker of a series of either three or four doubles.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    You can view my other pics leading up to these in the Insane Stunts thread. I'm just entirely to lazy to repost them over here. Anyway, I took some more pics today. Since it's winter, I can get pictures of more stunts in one pic, as the foliage doesn't get in the way.
    Here's a far view of the Roller Coaster:


    Start of the Roller Coaster/Trap(Trapezoid) up ramp:


    Side view of the Trap:


    View from top of Roller Coaster/Trap up ramp; left is RC, right is Trap:


    Top of Roller Coaster stretch:


    Edge of top of Roller Coaster roll-in:


    Side view of 9 Lives Drop. It's about 60 feet to the left(as you are riding it), and parallel with the Roller Coaster:


    This is the start of the Baker's Dozen Drop. It branches off the platform, of which pics are in the other thread:


    On up the BD catwalk:


    On up further to the curve. Catwalk is approximately 12 feet off the ground here. We plan on possibly branching a couple more stunts off this area right here:


    On up around the curve. We have about 40-50 more feet to go with this. This will be ~13 feet off the ground. The landing ramp will probably be about 3.5-4 feet high, with a 10-13 foot gap:


    This is taken standing from the Baker's Dozen catwalk, right before the curve starts up top. You can see some of the big stuff (to us anyway) that we currently have constructed:
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    There's more to freeriding than dirt jumps.

    We started on it in September 2006 and have been building on it ever since. I went out there yesterday to work on our DJ line we're building.
    As far as the lumber, about 90% of all of it was free. My former landlord and his wife are both realtors at a subdivision that is still under construction. We got all the lumber from their scrap pile. Kenny (my friend who owns the lot) also gets all sorts of pallets from the Embraer airline body shop that he works at. His lot also has a fairly big cedar thicket. We've used a few as ground support posts.
    We've spent probably all of $250 on screws since we started.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    Here is a better shot of the new berm jump .

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
    arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

    Where is the landing for that exactly? Is it on the back side of the berm behind that tumbleweed?
    That's a pretty neat little jump you got there. I mean 'little' metaphorically, not literally.

    CW, I'm guessing that lumber and wood is otherwise fairly expensive in your neck of the woods, huh?
    Or are there other reasons you have no wood structures?

    OK, I'm motivated. I'm a ripe 37 year old beginner but I've got five acres and a tractor so I am going to start building some stuff this spring. I'll start small and close to the ground so my seven year old doesn't hurt himself too bad (not to mention myself). I tried building a motocross loop on my land before but it got boring very fast. I can see alot more potential for some stuff for my bike. Is there a book or guide detailing the different obstacles and how to build them?

    Very inspiring pics!

    Its on forest service land otherwise we would have tons . We do have a few but they are coming out as part of an agreement with the FS.

    sm, you should be inspired.
    I'm 36. Kenny and I started all the stuff we've build in September of '06. Since you have more land AND a tractor, you could get stuff built rather quickly.
    As far as a guidebook, not really. If you know how to frame stuff up, that's all you really need to know.
    What Kenny and I did was have a general/tentative ground/stunt plan. We started building at one spot and just went with the flow. Unlike building a house or something, there isn't a structured plan for it. You can be very fluid with how you build something.


    Its on forest service land otherwise we would have tons . We do have a few but they are coming out as part of an agreement with the FS.
    Ohhhhh. Ok. Had I known that, I wouldn't have even asked.
    Even still, you have a dang awesome agreement with the Forest Service there. Where are you? That looks like AZ.

    Hard.

    We are building several different lines, from big huck stuff to super-tech skinny stuff. That is the latter.

    It might be hard, but you have the right idea.
    Once you start regularly riding stuff as narrow as 4", the wider stuff becomes a breeze.

    Yeh, thats the idea. Get the skinny stuff dialed, after muchos practice, and the wider stuff becomes second nature. The skinniest bit on this line is 6" is think, and i'm yet to do it, but my friend darren did it first time, so its definitely doable after a bit o'practice!

    Thats cool...Right now me & my friends are building a nice little skinny...Its a 2x6x12 leading to a 2x4x12 but its only about a foot off the ground...After some practice we might raise it up higher...We'll see...

    I basically got more dirt dug up for our drainage ditch. I started piling the dirt to the side for the construction of a new berm we're going to build, and the rest of the dirt went to the dirt pile down the trail a bit that is going to be the first DJ of a series of three doubles we plan on building; the first kicker now has enough dirt to be shaped.

    Ok ok, I'll play. A couple of the little things we built a year or so ago. I was sort of planning on ditching the spot because I've sort of 'outgrown' the stuff there, but the more I think of it... We can always build something bigger.

    This is a little vid of one of the jumps, rest are pics.

    We put the rocks in between the bridge. Unfortunatley, I can't find the pics from the other side. It starts about 3' wide and narrows down to a foot. It then goes uphill about 16" and then you see the rocks embedded in the bridge. It freaks people out, but everyone usually makes it. It was put in due to the mud you can see under it.

    Another wet area taken care of by the Roman Road to The Boardwalk. The Boardwalk itself is 90' long. The Roman Road is 65'. All of this was done in 3 days by 3 of us.

    More wet areas that are dry now.

    Ahhhhhhh!!!

    I wish i lived in a place where i Could build some good stuff.

    I had an awsome place where we built some sick stuff, but I went on vacation to . I got back and the city demo'd it. I was so pissed! We had written permission to ride there but the city decided to take all the dirt for a city project. FYI the destroyed all our ladders too. I wish I had pictures it was sweet but I didnt have a camera back then. Now we cant ride there at all becuase the new land owner thinks its a waste of time to ride around on bicycles. He even fenced it off it sucks. Since then though ive found e few good places to ride, their just realy out of the way.

    Excellent stunts you got there. Although you will NEVER see me riding skinnies or the like with my seat all the way up. That's just asking for a leather/vinyl/plastic/cromoly enema.
    Jump it onto something off of something or over something.

    That's some crazy **** right there; both the wheel stunt and the events leading up to his death.

    you inspired me!

    I know its not freeride stuff but you guys inspired me with this thread

    Wood is a lot cheaper than bike upgrades I do not need

    disregard the wood horse that was for backyard testing, the first 8 foot ladder is 7 inches wide and will be up 2 feet and the teeter will be up 5 all on the rock solid 4x4 we placed today (I feel like a sissy, my hands are a bloody mess from only 3 hours of post hole digging).




    I live in Downtown Pittsburgh but we have about 200 acres to work with about 20-30 minutes from my home.... have been getting some strange looks testing this stuff on the sidewalk in front of my row house

    we also have little 3-4 foot drops built but I am going to make them thinner and build wood landings in hopes of keeping the quads and dirt-bikes from destroying them

    I will post some more pictures wen we get a few features installed, thanks for the inspiration

    Pictures of 2 of the teeters just after they where installed, so we now have a couple teeters and about 30 feet of skinny ladder stuff.... its been slow going after the first 200 feet of trail we realized that the next 1/4 mile is old grape vines and thick roots/vines everywhere.

    Next will be a day of sectioning downed trees for basses and log piles, then I need to figure out how to make curved and banked ladders
