    Building Trail For The SingleSpeed

    I've the good fortune to live on a piece of land big enough to mtbike on. Over the last bunch of years I've put in almost 4 miles of trail behind the house. The last real push to add new stuff I was trying to incorporate a bunch of freeridy/ New England XStuntry features. Most of this crap is no fun on the light weight SS.

    " width="549">

    Now, as the SS hooks set in deeper and deeper I'm thinking about setting in a loop of more XC single speed friendly trail. I'm not thinking dumb easy, just not all charger tech climbs and fall line rollers.

    Any of you build trail just 'cause you want to ride your one gear on it?

    When I look for lines, I never look for long flat spinny sections, so I suppose I do help to build single speed tracks. Fall line tracks are fine if they are straight and they don't make the rider brake on them. Tech climbs are great.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Sick! I'm coming over and bringing beer. And an SS. What's your address?

    To answer your question, yes. I've had a hand in building close to 25 miles of singletrack and how it will ride on an SS is always a factor in trail layout.


    We don't quit riding because we get old.

    Awesome piece of property.
    Must be nice to ride (and design) your back yard
