Building & Riding a FAST wooden berm

Well, here's to learning to do something new! This wooden mountain bike berm is the first ever on Berm Peak, and it was full of learning experiences. Next time it'll look a little neater and go together smoother, but overall I think we built something very functional. So far this is one of my favorite home improvement projects. I can't stop going back there and roasting this thing!

    Honestly kinda surprised you didn’t put the end of the perm with a slow shrink down to make it much more fluid and you maintain contact with the ground constantly

    need a transition onto the berm... as it stands it is a post to collide with when things go wrong. adding a slope to the side reduces the rick/liability of it.

  46. bananas stuff

    bananas stuffПре 2 месеца

    because we don't want rick, do we? but what if rick wants us? he will feel left out! but anyway, i don't think that will happen, it looks like the corner is at the right point that it would be unnatural to do that.

    Using 1/8” dyneema rope instead of regular string eliminates the stretch and is pretty cheap! Also super strong for its size, thicker stuff is synthetic winch line.
