    I'd consider it, but seems like it needs to be a little longer - maybe not. I wonder how the wood feature would feel mixed in with a backyard dirt pump track?

    never know until you try! ive seen plenty of other wood features (wall rides, skinnies, etc) mixed in so why not!

    trestle

    I didn't see the wall ride from trestle...


    The Rainbow that follows the drops on No Quarter (IIRC) was great in that it is entirely scale-able. Grabbed a shit ton of rear brake the first time and rolled it, but was sending it after that...(not me in the pic)

    Different angle for perspective:

    Coming over the top:


    Here's a different twisty one at Trestle:

    Yeah definitely! That thing is so rad. The first time I didn't stick to it all the way around. But then a local told me stay on the right side of the trail then carve left right at the last second and it sends you on a higher path around the wall and you just stick to it.

    some re-posts from the other thread. . . .




    Diablo


    this one at Mammoth looks a little tougher to build (with the transitioned face):


    natural hillside landing with some extra dirt pack. very cool.


    roller to drop

    kinda looks like the platform is about 8 feet off the ground and the launch is maybe 6?

    imagine a few of these plank-style instead of ply... maybe a little less steep-and-deep and more mellowed out radius and longer bubble for more horizontal speed....

    wood pump track at Burnaby. never rode it, so can't really say.... maybe would be a little cooler if with a more elevation change, either natural or artificial. such as a couple of platforms that are more like 6' or 8' or even 10' high. if you did that, it would ride a little more bikepark-ish, like Ray's. also the lines themselves, a couple could be raised off the ground, so you're not always coming back to ground level after every roller. would make it a little more rollercoaster-ish.



    also could do some of the rollers stretched into roller-tables. this drawing is only 2 ft tall, but could also be 3' or 4'.


    the roller-table (table without corners, but rounded off-edges) allows you to stick close to the track scrub style or do nose manuals like D.L. and Pearce:

    very cool: bmx-track style rollable/rounded corners but indoor with wood.... more bike parks should follow the lead of Ray's (like this place, Cranx, clearly did!)

    EDIT: hah hah. yet another example of Ray's MTB park illustrating with a real life picture. starting from an elevated platform is always more fun/flowy.

    are wooden features like these going to be more of a private land venture? as i remember, most public dirt locations had "no builds with wood" types of clauses. but by most, obviously not all as there are some that exist

    these "jump in jump out" type features have been "the thing" the last couple of years for sure.

    There have been several different spots where wood features are a possibility and some where they're already a reality (e.g. Allied Compound and Pace Bend). I'm kinda using this thread as a sort of tumblr/pinterest (hah!) spot to post things for future reference (for us, or for other people less familiar with freeride build-ups).
