Building MTB Drop

The mountain biker does not need to fear Home Depot as it can open up bike related projects.

Backyard pump tracks, backyard jumps are all good but Seth had the vision of building a North Shore drop in his backyard. Since he had the room and elevation slope, he went at it and finished it in a day.

It’s a cool project indeed that allows him to play and progress without leaving home. It’s a bit empowering to know that it’s not that hard to build features or bike related storage on any given afternoon or weekend.

This is a good follow-on the the trail build that he did at the start of summer. The project may not be adding value to his home but it sure makes it more dialed for a mountain biker.

What kind of mountain bike related build projects have you undertaken in your home?

    But wow, I can’t get over that he was pre-drilling all those holes. SPAX! No pre-drilling and I say that with confidence as I’ve used hundreds of them in structural applications.
