 Loved haha

 how much did the mulch cost you
  • + 2
 I actually ended up cutting it down a bit so the lip height matched the landing height. It actually felt really nice at 6ft, so it just depends on your landing and what you want. If you dont want it as vert, step back, picture in your head where it should be and cut it down to that mark.

 I wish i had room to build one of theese Frown

 I have enough room in the yard, but if I tried this off the house my wife would not be sporting a squirrel voice more like a grizzly bear.

 FYI: The second to last song is "The Rock show" by Blink-182. It is a kickass song.
  • + 1
 So I build a 6ft lip with 8ft radius, and it looks way more vert that the one in the video. Help, and I does look like a 9ft radius.

  • + 1
 That is so cool Beer I don't think my wife would be as understanding lol
  • + 2
 haha that was a pretty huge one hander at the start!
  • + 1
 only if building a mulch jump took 5min Frown anyone know how much a load of mulch costs?
  • + 1
 It depends on what kind you get and where. And if you need it delivered etc. I was able to get it delivered for $8 a yard. Youll need at least 20 yards for a decent landing. 30 would be best if you do yours like I did mine
  • + 1
 How much did yours cost for the mulch and the wood?
  • + 1
 "that was poorly planned on my part" lmao, Ive said that quite a few times in my life too.
  • + 1
 LOL I wish I had a place to put all of this stuff in haha The dogs are probably gonna poop in it though lol

  • + 1
 hey im im building a mulch jump but i was wonder how long ur run way is and how tall ur roof is
  • + 1
 how long is the wooden lip?
  • + 1
 hahaha i love metzger! no homo
  • + 1
 haha good vid i liked it!
  • + 1
 how mach money did u spend on the ramp
  • + 1
 I think everything cost about $400 thats the hay, mulch, and all the wood.
  • + 1
 what are the dimensions for that kicker ???
  • + 1
 Umm not sure, made it 6ft tall and did an 8ft radius. so you hammer a nail to a 10ft 2x4 at exactly 8 ft, then attach a string and draw the radius on the 4x8
  • + 1
 looks like a 9ft radius?? an 8ft radius would fit onto 2 peices of 8x4. :/
  • + 1
 That is awesome I wanna build one!!
  • + 1
 make another session video!!!
  • + 1
 I want a Transition bike, they look sick and fun to ride

 Thats not creepy or anything
  • + 1
 Yeah! Amazing!

But, What's hte right size for the jump?
  • + 1
 What do you mean? The right size is up to you. I just went with a 6ft lip and 25 yards of mulch
  • + 1
 haha that was cool, good job tup
  • + 1

 ahahahahaha that was awesome.
  • + 1
 Way more work than it looks like! Nice job!
  • + 1
 Oh yeah man, it was a ton of work and money. But really happy with how well it came out. Works really well because you can very easily roll out of it, but Ive crashed MEGA hard already and it doesnt hurt at all.
  • + 2
 Nice man, how much is the truck load of mulch? I am thinking about building one of those in my backyard in Portland.
  • + 1
 It took about 25 yards of mulch/woodchips. And 70 bails of hay. Luckily the hay was only $1 each
  • + 1
 But how much was the 25 yrds of mulch?
  • + 1
 I think it was about $250 by the time I was done with delivery
  • + 1
 So it gd ..but its not cheap...
  • + 1
 Depends on who you are I guess. You could always use more hay and less mulch. Or make a pile of dirt then cover in mulch etc. All depends on how clever you can be
  • + 1
 I suppose... doesnt the top bails of hay fall off at all??
  • + 1
 I bought a couple farming fence post and drove them in along the outside of the bails to keep them from falling over
  • + 1
 ah.. ok kl. cheers
