TTF building guide

Postby RBF » Fri Sep 12, 2008 12:40 pm

I love the IMBA trail guide, but unfortunately like most other guides it stops short when it comes to building stunts. More and more I come across illegally built stunts on local trails and most of them are dangerous and sketchy as can be. Has anyone seen the 'log ride' at YR?
With that in mind we've put together a resource for building all types of TTFs from dirt, wood and rock with the idea of supplimenting IMBA's guide and others.
Here is the link if any are interested:

More will be posted over time.
Would love to hear any feedback or questions

Thanks.

I have read thru those links already.... No slight meant towards IMBA, I genuinely love their newest trail guide, but more is needed than just a topical overview of TTFs.

Thanks for your post.
