I have built trail for 10yrs, 6-7 volunteer and 3 professionally, and it was fantastic! Currently I'm building in ground swimming pools which is pretty similar, but still building on the side at Red Clay Playground. I'm an old dog trying to learn some new tricks, dirt jumping!

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
@Bustacrimes: Dude, I go through derrailleurs like freakin air that I breathe, got a new derr the other day, put a freakin stick through it and bent the hanger and cage. I ride my bike like a monster truck, if I could do away with the derr I would, and then I'd learn to maintenance it on my own, because I'm thrifty like that. A gearbox would be rad, perfect gear range, all packaged up in a tidy box, keeps the mud out, no derrs to bend/break off, no chain slap, I don't even care about the weight, if I could slap one on my bike right now i'd do it!

Trail Dreams: The Ted Tempany Interview
So inspiring, one day I will own several machines and have my own trail building company.... I built professionally for 3 years, but the work moved and family is more important right now, but I continue to build volunteer trail! I love it, I love to watch ppl shred something that i've dreamed up, or taken from something else and pieced into our trail puzzle. If you have never been involved in a trail project, you should, it's like a gift that keeps on giving!

Seriously, the videography and the images you chose to highlight, that falcon, breathtaking. Adventures are like that, sometimes you are prepared, sometimes not, makes me want to go on my next one!

Pinkbike Poll: Why Do You Trail Build?
I dig because quite frankly I'm disgusted with the frat/clique persona that our local IMBA chapter has transformed into. Knoxville has got it right, they have 60 ppl show up to work days, then drink beer and ride after digging, Chattanooga on the other hand, is like 15 years behind the progression curve. A little harsh, maybe, but the only jump spots that are open to the public within 30 min of the city, I have had a hand in building. The Trials Training Center Gravity Park (TTC Gravity Park) has been 7 years in the making and is a gem of a DH park near Chatty. I put in 5 years of volunteer time there and try to get out that way whenever I can. Now I'm helping build a new DJ park in Trion, GA (only 45ish min outside of Chatty) Red Clay Playground (RCP). I build because it helps me sleep at night, there are so many features that I see in movies, pinkbike, and all things dirt mags, that I literally have to build or it drives me and everyone around me crazy. When I dig, if i'm angry I can utilize it in a good way, if I've got a lot on my mind, I can process better with digging, also when i'm done, I have created something that I can enjoy with my friends.

Robot Bike Co R160 Custom - Review
Right!? Well, eventually the plans will be open source, then we'll be able to print our own bikes, or parts or whatever! I mean, there are open source plans for AR lowers from a dude out of Texas, now alls I gotta do is invest in the printer!

East Bound and Down: Knoxville, Tennessee
The dirt jump scene is growing here as well, I am grateful to have been a part of the fledgling TTC scene and now Trion, Ga is about to be on the map. Got access to 7 acres of land and the homeowner is building legit dirt jumps, i'm grateful to be in the right place at the right time to help him grow the scene.

Dodging Bullets on a Mountain Bike Ride - Video
@SintraFreeride: So what happens when the criminals disobey the law and steal guns from the gov't/police/mexico wherever they get them and we can't defend ourselves? Making law abiding citizens guns disappear doesn't solve the criminals guns disappearing, that's just crazy.
