my only real point was that if you think logged in "shore style" jumps are the only kind of "freeride" jumps than you need to get out more.  and fwiw, the main line at the garden has been sent on a squishy freeride bike, and just about every freeride stunt i've ever seen has been sent on a hardtail.  its FREEride.  go ride whatever you want, go build whatever you want.  slopestyle bikes KILL IT on dirtjumps, its just an issue of having jedi like skills to maintain your momentum.

Mr. Euroford, I don't want to turn this into an internet pissing contest-----I am just saying that there are two ride spots that already have the "dirt jump" style lips you are talking about: the garden and Plainfield Bike Park. Second, I am happy that they are there. I am just saying, for the sake of variety, wouldn't it be something special to have a shore style trail as well? Or even  something like the old jump line at CPX.
It's too bad only a few people got to experience the trail we put together at little woods...................
Or have ridden with adam............................................................

I think the whole point is that you can construct features and jumps to be rollable or of varying difficulty depending on how you hit the feature.  Tim pointed out how to shape a jump that can have a nice boostable lip and still be rolled by someone without killing the shape and ride quality.  With some creativity you can apply this same logic of sustainability and skill variance into other features made of dirt, rock or wood.

If the jumps were made of rock or wood than you would not have a Rolling the lip problem in the first place........  Just a thought........  A very 1 in the am beer induced thought.

So we have done some of our homework and found some of the info we have been looking for.  When is the next time we can get together to talk about how to approach land managers and what we need from local business owners to show they are on board with this?

That looks like an awful lot of resistance at the bottom of those jumps.  Whats the ohm rating on that jump?

Haha:)  Obviously no electronics geeks are in here:)  Are we the only ones gobighitmtb???  I like your style, haha:)
