Well, can't wait to ride instead of building trails. Time to rip Bromont for 15 plus runs. :Cool :

Well, I would love to build a trail at bromont!
Not me but I do build elsewhere across the province for a living.

amen to that I don't even do the 7 because of that, my hand and forearms just burn after a run...
I only take it to do star wars. I can ride the others all day.

Seems every trail they build is just tight berms, this #57 was done all wrong with the berms at an 18ft radius when they where supposed to be done 24ft minimum to prevent drifting. I rode it yesterday 4 times and every time I rode it mistakes and bad conception popped up. The berms won't last the season, first day officially open and already their starting to break loose and no that's not brake pumps. The reason holes appear in berms is usually soft spots. The bridge, done all wrong and the structure itself begs to be questioned as well the start of it is full of kinks. They built a dirt jump instead of a table top or gap between two berms.

I'm not saying I'm the best at building, much better people out there but my specialty is wood work (Northshore style) and I got pretty darn good at sculpting berms with excavators including in pump tracks as well dirt jump parks.

I actually like the #7 non stop top to bottom, I absolutely feel nothing on my bike.

I'm really happy with my Turner dhr, the rear suspension just eats up everything and pretty much the same with my fox40 up front. I have the wrong oil in the fork 10wt instead of 7.5wt and makes a huge difference how it compresses. Only oil I had or could get locally this spring but that will be fixed this week. Even MSA their Vietnam trail which is all full of holes I was floating through. The secret is to ride even faster if your getting knock around, eventually the faster you go your just flying over the bumps. Razz

I guess because people wont rolle on them so the lip will stay nicer longer then a table that an average joe might roll it and undo the lip

TBH I jump before the lip so I don't mind that much

it's true that if you go faster its less hard but I usually take outside line that are less bumpy but some parts of it is inevitable and you're stuck rolling in the bomb hole at fairly high speeds, I usually manual a coule of these but you always get rocked by some.

I also reckon that I hold my grips fairly tight bt is not the biggest part of the problem. Brakebumps (bombholes) in the middle of berms are killers...

By the time you have speed to go big on that one theirs a little table top next up close and you end up with too much speed. We had a few guys test run them that are good at jumping and yep they went way over on the second one.

I don't feel them and the Turner is too plush on the rear to manual it, all my other bikes I use to wheely anywhere but not the turner.
