    Thats pretty darn nice, especially for $14. I would hgihly suggest adding some more triangulation to the legs to better support them, i.e. braces from middeck to bottom of the legs going both forward and back. Otherwise I'm sure overtime you will find that your stunt will want to move and sway.

    That's a dang nice lawn and all but there would definitely be tracks going to and away from that thing if it was in my yard. Very nice work.

    its funny that you mention that, b/c i designed it so the ramp can be easily removed.. and set back w/ its own legs and supports this way it can be a step up to drop.

    i'm just getting ready to go build a couple more things.. and my buddy is coming out w/ his truck shortly so we can haul it up .. i'll try to get some new pictures today.

    Dude,

    Where are you planning on putting that stunt? Two reasons why I ask:

    1) I want to ride it for sure (Your in the Salt Lake/Provo area right? Just an assumption based on the picture your comment about it being really hot, and the Wasatch tat on your stunt)
    2) If you are planning on putting it anywhere on the backside of Squaw where the secret downhill trail was, don't!!!! I personally was witness to the forest service tearing down all of the stunts that were on that trail, and have also heard of them handing out tickets to people. Just looks like a cool stunt and don't want it to go to waste after a week or two of being there.

    PM me an let me know where you guys are putting that if it is in the Salt Lake/Provo, UT region.

    make it into a cement flat drop that would be really harsh... and not cool but for real where is it going ? steep drop off or wha?

    the dimensions are RAMP: 8 ft, X 2 ft DROP 8 ft X 2 ft and 3.5 ft high.
    Home depot has some good deals on some cheap/strong wood.. its just not exactly strait .. keep your eyes peeled and it ends up being cheap. . Plus if there is tons of development going around your place like there is mine...ask if you can have scraps .. they totally dish them out w/o hesitating.

    We are thinking about turning that drop into two drops.. but i'm not so sure yet.. there is a cool spot on the trail that has a short steep landing there i thought the entire thing would be fun and a bet more tech.. we'll see .. with how it goes.. the land pretty much dictates how the stunts are going in. there is a natural skinny getting worked on sometime next week that i think you guys will really enjoy.. it looks tough .. especially b/c the log bounces a bit.

    The trail is out in Midway UT near Heber City. .. i'll give direction to people once its ready to ride... its a great shuttle ride with tech and flowy terrain..

    The stunts are all pretty hidden.. so if you don't know where i look you won't find them... we did this b/c we don't want them to be torn down, obviously.

    Ryan,

    That sounds sick!!! Let me know if I can help in anyway. I know that area well from many hours spent in the winter time there backcountry skiing with snowmobiles. I have the entire month of August off work so, so don't hesitate to holler if you would like some additional help.

    the top is too short, if you have speed your bike will lift automatically and you will either:

    1) clear the whole thing which would be sick and fairly easy, although you would be wasting the wood on top that could be used for something else
    2) front will lift sketching you out and you will have little or no time to get the front down before the drop which could lead to an indo off the drop, although you could turn it into a manual which would be sick

    I would just split it into 2 jump ramps or flatten the whole thing out more so you could have a step up like already mentioned while keeping mad speed up onto it, on top of it and off it. Speed is funnnn.

    Just a little constructive critisism, I built one that was virtually the same as that except it was twice as high at the drop and a little bit longer overall, but I still ran inot the same problms I mentioned above. I wish I had built it different the 1st day after I rode it.
