    JUMPS! Assorted style and materials

    Hey Guys,

    Myself and a group of friends have some private land and an awesome land owner who is allowing us to build trail on his and his family's land.

    We are all typical all mountain riders down to XC down to beginner level who have recently purchased some light free-ride bikes and are ready to broaden our riding experience.

    The property has one section with moderate elevation and enough slope to get a 6-8 second downhill run. We will have about 8 of these 6-8 second runs to play with.

    Since this is private land, very few riders will be using the trails, not publicized or affiliated with the local IMBA chapter; we are letting the quidelines slack just a little. We don't need to worry as much about the quality of the features. Of course they need to be safe.

    If anybody has any pics, advice, sites, drawings on how to build jumps (intermediate...2-3 foot wood, gaps, dirt jumps(all mountain dirt jumps), crib jumps...I would appreciate.

    I do have the IMBA Trailbuilding book all ready

    Cheers

    That's good stuff. A lot of it is out of our league but the concept is there, we just need to miniaturize. Living in the middle of NC only gives us some small pine. We will just have to use treated lumbar from donations or purchase. Plenty of hardwood for stringers though...

    Thanks for the links.

    Even treated wood or the red cedar we try to use here will have to be replaced eventually. We give red cedar 8 years and treated lumber 5 (government policy).

    Untreated pine will last that long above ground. Be sure to peel all the bark and overbuild. Use 4" where you think 2" is enough. If you can get some cheap deck stain to slap on, you can add a couple of years.

    Dirt and rocks are your friend. If you've got 'em, use 'em.

    Good info., thanks. Wish we had rock, old farming land that has re-forested. What we lack in elevation change and natural features, will be compensated with plenty of tight mileage and built features. The ravine that we are working on is our one single treasure on the property.
