Making Dirt Jumps . . .

Postby EvilPoe » Fri Oct 25, 2002 1:21 pm

i'm primarily a cross country rider (trek fuel 90 w/ disc brakes), but i just recently bought a bmx to do some dirt jumpin since i can't quite afford a $5000 DH bike yet. either way, my friend and i are beginning to build some dirt jumps. i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. i remember looking in a mag a while back and it had a nice size article on building jumps, but unfortunately i don't remember what issue. it was either mtb action or mountain bike - anyone remember? thanks for your suggestions.
yay!

a couple starters, make sure the dirt isnt rocky, and that its some what moist so it actually sticks together, after that, you can start worrying about shapeing it. Oviously make an effort to make it smooth as you go along, but not the priority.

Also, make sure to make the mound about twice as big as you want the jump to be, because when it packs down it will be much smaller
