 is it true that you can build in BC trails however you want them and no one cares or destroys it like in my woods..? Frown
I think i wouldn't come out the woods for ages building my dreams Big Grin

 not entirely. you do have a lot more freedom, but like everywhere in the world, your trails can easily get poached. it mainly depends on who the landowner is and who has access to the trails.

 Sort of, most of the land is "crown land" which means that you can build stuff on it, but anyone is allowed to ride it.
  • + 7
 Here where I live you are not even allowed to ride trails at all. Legal built trails are pretty rare because it's extremely hard to get a license for that. Your have to get a license for every fucking thing you do here even using a chainsaw. Our politicians are retarded as hell they want to make having fun illegal i guess

 Its pretty much the same here. We are not not able to legally build in the places that we do (of course we're not building houses and don't import anything from outside the woods besides the tools, so I don't think the government or DEP would really go after us. They have not even after 3 years). The thing that sucks is we cant build anything out of wood because we know it will only be up for a few months until it is "mysteriously" knocked down. Even with some of our other big features, we make sure we build in areas that people wont easily find... I cant believe how people get joy from destroying peoples hard work be it legal or not.

 Dude1005 , I dont think you really get how crow land useage rights actually work .... you cant actually build on crown land without permission...however, most areas are sparcely populated, so no one cares.

 ya i got a 120 buck fine for building up here in rupert. The industries are grabbing all the land up here and are reporting illegal trail building activities to the feds....i still build though....f*ck those (fracking)f*cking f*ckers. We need trail to keep the kids off the screens, and to keep old people like me healthy.

 back in the day it was to keep the kids off the street and now its off the screens....lol wtf?

 this edit blew away my expectations for both the trail and the filming great job!
  • + 7
 Bottom line that is VOD material. Filming was spot on and riding was dialed. I would love to lay tread on that line, looks sooooooooo sick. Off the charts!

 Great build. Outstanding riding. Classic edit. You folks turned a triple-play!

 Happened across Loam Line about 2 weeks ago. Have been back to ride it 3 times since! Amazing! It's like you I guys built a Whistler run out there! Everything is perfectly buffed, and all the geometry of the jumps is bang-on and consistent. You did an amazing job and a service to the biking community. It is a real treat. Thank you!

 Where is the loam?

 how do you all gauge where to put landings for your drops/jumps?
Does someone just guinea-pig it to flat then you build where their tire marks are?
  • + 5
 You just kind of get an idea of where a tranny should be based on the speed you have coming into the jump. Before we built a feature we would usually have it planned out where we wanted the jump and the tranny. Then we would connect the trail up to the jump so that you have the appropriate amount of speed into it. We didn't do them all this way, sometimes we just knew where to put. Now that its spring and the trail is almost 2 years old, it is running a lot quicker than when we first built it. So the trannys are a little shorter than what they could or should be. But on one hand that gives you a little room for error if you happen to not carry enough speed.

 Just rode the trail yesterday. Thanks for the build guys. Honestly haven't ridden many trails of that quality. Everything worked so well!

 what's the tool used for saving the logs? I really want to buy one but I don't know the name.. Sick edit makes me want to build bigger and better!
  • + 1
 It's called a draw shaver. Likely won't find one at Home Depot. You will probably need to go to a more specialty wood working place like Lee Valley Tools. You can also use a brush axe if you get the right angle
  • + 1
 Also known as a drawknife, same thing. Old ones are often the best steel so second hand/antique stores are often a good place to get a good one. Aswell as lee valley
  • + 2
 great vid and trail building, just wondering though, why do you shave the bark off the logs, wont the bark protect them for longer against rotting etc
  • + 2
 It's actually the opposite, it stops it from rotting quicker. It also looks a lot better.
  • + 1
 thanks for that, I didn't know it would rot quicker, and yep it does look better
