Interesting @sk8rpro1, a friend of mine used to ride moto a ton, and he always said those forks would flex like mad when you do the parking lot test like you suggested(hold the wheel in the legs and twist the bars). I just assumed that the stiffer,torsional, fork was the goal...maybe not so much?

I don't understand, the weight is advertised at 2950grams=6.5.lbs. How are you guys coming up with 7.2lbs?

Cowichan Valley, Southern Vancouver Island - Opening New Trails
cool idea. when i first started getting into doing trail work, my favorite work was building/fixing structures. i had little to no money so i would dumpster dive for 2x4's and whatever i could get my hands on. so when the 2x material is wet it is really slippery, so the shingles were a good fix for that material. now working in areas with cedar trees, i just use stumps from logging operations and split decking from that. i know i'm certainly not the first but i see why it is so popular to use. they are super durable, and the uneven surface makes for a better traction surface than any 2x material.cheers.

I have used housing shingles, cut to various shapes to fit the structure, for all season grip. It has been a descent success so far.

I think this is a good conversation to have. We get to express what works/doesn't work for us. In the end it is feedback for builders and maintenance people who are now working on trails, and for those who will become trail people in the future. I have to admit my earlier comments about poor quality building did not include the fact that i liked the look of the trail design. I am personally sold on berms as a legitimate part of everyday trails and the builder obviously delivered on that. I just hope for better and better on each build, with regards to the actual structure integrity(kind of a Mike Holmes approach, build it strong and with the right materials no matter how much longer it takes). I regret that i didn't point out that this is my personal opinion, and not fact. Keep building. cheers.

This photo is haunting to me. Your center rider is just walking on this invisible stairway, and the left of center rider is almost ghostly in that it seems like he is emerging from the ground and will disappear soon...maybe. Cool shot.

Nice. Maybe have to run for Senator and divert some of my housing money into trail building. Your point is taken thanks for not getting too crazy on me. cheers
