Just curious how many riders have built their own ramps, wedges, etc at their place? I realize that not everyone has a "place" to have ramps and stuff, just wondered who else has them outside their back/front door so you can ride anytime weather permits.

we do...our setup is pretty sick. when you walk in (there in the woods) theres a vert wall to box to 7 foot quarter.right next to that is a 7 foot quarter to spine to an funbox, on the left side of the funbox is a small mini with a wallride, and the other side is another small mini, with a 6 foot to 4 foot..

Now, this brings up another good question. When riders describe ramps, and boxes, they seem to all label them a little differently, or it seems so. For instance someone says "7' quarter", is that 7' high.....or utilizes a 7' radius as it's transition? I understand the difference between a wedge, a transitional ramp (that's the curvy one...lol), spines, boxes, decks, sub boxes, walls, etc.........but when someone says I have a 7' quarter pipe, in reality a "quarter" pipe would be just that, 1/4 of a entire pipe, which would make the bottom of the ramp flat with the ground, and the last part of the lip at the top vertical. In other words, most quarter pipes are not a complete quarter, as it depends on their transition and how high they are.
For instance; I have a 3' tall launch ramp, it is 6 feet long, 4 feet wide, and based on a 9' tranny/radius, however you want to look at it, but that means it is a "section" of a 18' round pipe, and is only a quarter (9' rad), but being only 3' high it is not really a "quarter pipe" as it would have to be 9' tall at the lip/deck to be a true quarter. Sorry - just bored this morning.......and prone to rambling.

Trimix, you're a f*ckin genius. Seriously!
:D


My ramps(i should say "our" because my friends help build) are as ghetto as they come with dirt and wood being completely interchangable and in some places indistinguishable. Let's just say we really take advantage of being able to ride our bikes anywhere, lol.

Trimix - It always describes height. Since transition radii is pretty standard, depending on the ramp, there's no need to specify. For example, quarters and minis usually utilize 7.5-8' trannys. If it's an 'abnormal' tranny, it will be specified. Example - "Today I rode a 3' vert quarter." It obviously used a 3' tranny.

Got ya'. Soooo, somethiing as small as a 4' radius would be considered 'quick'? Seeing that the standard radius' are 7.5-8'? For instance if it was 4 feet tall, and based on a 4' radius (which is small)......it would be like hitting a brick wall? Sorry, I come from a dirt background. Synthetic ramps are new to me.

It wouldn't be like hitting a brick wall. It would actually be rediculously fun to ride, just because it's different. But it would take a lot of getting used to. A lot. A 4' vert ramp, in otherwords.
