Backyard WOODEN Pump Track Build (part 3) // 180 Degree Berm and A New Bike!

Backyard WOODEN Pump Track Build (part 3) // 180 Degree Berm and A New Bike!
we've been

build

ing a

pump

track

here on the channel and last week we built a 90-

degree

berm

this

berm

ended up having a wall though as I would lay down the decking it would gain about an inch or so gap on both sides now this wasn't anything that would stop me from riding it but it didn't look great so I asked you guys for some help and someone responded that's someone being Chris Callaway I sent him the details for the

berm

and he sent back the Mona Lisa of blueprints so in this
backyard wooden pump track build part 3 180 degree berm and a new bike
video we are gonna put these blueprints to the test and I'm also happy to say Squarespace is on board again for this one so a huge thank you to Squarespace for sponsoring this video one of the great advantages of having a full set of blueprints is we get to cut all of our pieces out ahead of time as opposed to winging it which takes quite a lot of time and also results in varying widths of things so to start out we are going to cut a buttload of support boards oh and I got a new

bike

so
I'll introduce that too as we go along but first let's cut some boards if you're going to try and make this make sure you mark all of your boards a lot of these look very similar to each other and it's just gonna make things run way smoother whenever we go to assemble everything what we're gonna do now is measure out these pieces right here this little it's the side piece for the structures or for each module and we'll cut one out and then we'll have a template
and go ahead and cut out the rest as I was making my

berm

s and cutting out these pieces I also had something else being made my new

bike

and I'm the owner of a local

bike

shop called mountain

bike

shed agreed to help me get everything put together while I was busy

build

ing up my

berm

s so a huge thank you need to be said to him and Darren who put the

bike

together if you live in or near st. Louis this is the shop to go to I highly recommend them even if you're just stopping by maybe to
check out our new mountain

bike

park he's just minutes away from there so go check out mountain

bike

shed in Eureka alright guys if you haven't guessed it by now my new

bike

is the alchemy arctos it's a gorgeous short travel 29er that alchemy kindly sent out to me to give a try I've had my eye on alchemy for quite some time now because of how jaw-droppingly gorgeous their

bike

s are and I just really really wanted to try one of these now clearly this thing gets a 10 out of 10 on
backyard wooden pump track build part 3 180 degree berm and a new bike
the absolutely freaking gorgeous scale but we're gonna put it through the test once we get our firms built up so let's get back to that now we've cut all of our structural walls and now we need to cut the decking for this we'll need to get a centerline laid out because we want to per sheet of plywood and these things barely fit so to make it easy I've got a chalk line so what I'm gonna do is stick this directly on this little point nice and tight okay before I do and put
out much more of these pieces of decking I'm gonna put one of the modules together that way we can see that everything is working properly but actually I'm gonna go ahead and put my curb cuts along the back so when we go to push this decking on it'll push down much easier than not doing anything at all let's feel like I'm laying in provocative positions when talk to you guys so since we've got this one done I'm gonna pull it outside take it out next to the other

berm

s and then guys we're just gonna cut out the rest of these deckings and then put together the rest so it's just gonna be a big old time-lapse getting all that done so we can get this big 180

degree

burn everything in Chris's blueprints worked nearly perfectly except for one thing the spacer it was supposed to help with the board spacing but it ended up being easier just measuring and marking where each one would go and now that we have all six modules made up we can start to
move our

pump

track

together again so let's do that this was insane so after a few tries it became quite apparent to me that I wasn't going to get enough speed to sin the step up so I got an idea it's getting close to sunset I want to try and send this thing a few more times but Adam and Dave of Gork gravity and mountain

bike

shed or coming over and we're gonna see if we can do this thing hopefully they bring some lights out and we can send this into the night and try to
backyard wooden pump track build part 3 180 degree berm and a new bike
get it give her hell first up Adam gave it a try after he gave it the old college try a couple times it was apparent that he wasn't going to get this either so next we had Dave try it on his G bye and sadly no luck for him either hi and this is Erica she tried it too and also no longer so we pretty much gave up on this step up for now so we're gonna take a little time in the muddy muddy woods and play around on some of the drops and on the new

bike

let's see how it how it rides up
after Dave clogged up his e

bike

it was time to finally get back to business I decided to step up was a lost cause so me and Adam went ahead and moved the modules this made the contract way more rad so we move things around again for a final game of widen the gap until someone gets hurt yeah poor things got too bad I had to call it quits here I really dug this setup though so I might think about keeping the step up reversed as a step down in the future but that's kind of the whole point
of these modules though isn't it I get to move them any way I want and speaking of things I want this

bike

is proving to be awesome it's super playful and it's just overall a really fun 29er I won't give a final verdict seeing as I just got it but I definitely recommend going and checking out their website in the description and speaking of websites if you are a youtuber like me or any other creator for that matter we tend to like to do things ourselves but it can be really hard
to

build

your own website from scratch so for that I use Squarespace because of how simple it is to make absolutely stunning websites with minimal time and effort like dangerously stunning websites if you guys are ready to take your business to the next level head on over to Squarespace comm for a free trial and when you're ready to launch your website go to Squarespace comm slash

bike

s for sending out that that uh arctos it's freaking awesome and mountain

bike

shed for putting it together and Chris for making the blueprints there's a lot to be thankful for in this episode but I also want to thank you guys for just watching if you
haven't yet go ahead and subscribe because I thoroughly appreciate that but yeah everything turned out pretty good and I'm excited about getting the other

berm
