Building a steep skinny bridge on a fallen elm tree

8 Maj 2020
1 298 758 Shikime

A string of tornados and storms passed through the Southeastern US, and Berm Peak took a bit of a beating! This weekend, Alexander and I turn a downed Elm into a really fun skinny mountain bike bridge named Elm'r Fudd. This was a challenging feature to build, but it was even more challenging to ride.

  • Fyi, that maul was sent to me by a subscriber, and is made of some kind of hardwood. I don’t use the sledgehammer anymore because it just splits the wood before it makes it into the ground.

  • Honestly. What do you have against a good mallet or sledgehammer? I need to see a video comparison between your “janky” hammer vs a real sledgehammer. I’m guessing you’d save hours of frustration. 🥵

  • I've hiked miles of State and Federal administered property. Alongside rogue-built single-track ride for bike pedal-push. In a county where one off-road 2-wheeling community has +50 miles of posted trail for use by bicycle use only and who act as land managers for private property owners. When I ride my embroidery colors are those of the Canyon Riders M/C. Their elected President and I once went 11 miles into state land rain forest to haul out my dead ride. I'm not happy when timber is harvested illegally. On state land timber sales support public education finance. My US Forest Service also sells timber to pay USA trade debt. I always report chainsaw and ax noise when heard where the ridge-line occurs. An unlikely illegal grow because my state will license and allow such agricultural use. I don't like timber thieves to further their illicit activity. My County Sheriff and with US Border Patrol air assets using thermal imagery welcome such communication. When I see bad things in Canada I've telephoned 1-800- 663-3456. Canada has 24/7 report service response. >>>p.s. ALworld has war video of thermal imagery by air assets. Its amazing to see people attempting to hide or flee aerial noise. It shows US ground forces 'mop-up' anybody outside at night without excuses.

  • To help the wood last longer you could invest in some non-ferrous fasteners, like the lag screws seem to be to keep ferrous rot out of the wood. Stuff like rebar and iron/steel nails and screws will only speed up the rot process

  • Seth, try to put like a cushion on the maul. Maybe something that absorbs the shocks, (like on a hammer). I gotta say, all of this work you're doing, you could be great at building bike parks. You got the talent and confidence to be a designer and such! I wish I had a backyard like that! Keep it up, and hope to see more like this!!
