Getting Started on my Backyard Mountain Bike Trails

  • Published on Sep 6, 2019
  • We've been doing lots of home renovation and improvement projects for the past few weeks, and it has all been in preparation for the main course: The backyard mountain bike trails! Today, we build the Berm Peak Express, a climbing trail that ends at the summit of my property.
    From there, we will build a trailhead, and all the routes that will descend from the top. Join me for a day of building, DIY, and lots of fun.

    You should flag your trails, it may take a bit more time, but you will know exactly what you want as you can put the flags in places where paint simply won't.

    get a post hole digger you can cut the handles down a bit to make it more portable but it will make it more difficult. It's helped me dig down pretty far and it keeps a pretty tight hole all you need to do is stomp down on it with your heel and your good to go

    You could use zip ties as markers, they wont fall off. Your videos are awesome! I dont want to tell you what to do this is your land and trails but it would be cool if you did some kind of paint or stain on the launch pad.

    You should make the endurobarrow rideable. Like maybe 4 wheels or 3 and make it electric to make it easier to transport items up and down berm peak

    If you want a cool tip, buy, "Mechanix" gloves. Good for working in the bush, working on mechanical stuff, and riding with. You'd probably never take them off. Keeps your hands clean too when working on stuff like drivetrain. Actually (honestly surprisingly) the best gloves I've ever had for riding with as well.

    Instead of painting use a machete to mark the trail !

    this trail looks really fun, but i think u should add a berm with actual dirt. i think some small jumps in in this trail could work really well.

    Orange is property corner or line and the blue is for control points where you set up the instrument or back site. You could have had (still can) your surveyor set POL's - points on line as if you were going to build a fence but helps keep you and guests in bounds. Just have them set a mfp- metal fence post every 50-75 feet if it's clear line of sight and pain them orange. I use to be a land surveyor and know what keeps neighbors happy with each other lol it's best to do it all when you take over a new property as to not make your new neighbors mad. Love the videos and next time you fly out of McGhee Tyson holler and grab some lunch.

    Painting the trees with construction paint should naturally wash of in 6 months to a year. Not gonna hurt anything out there. Sunshine and rain will take care of it for you

    Hey seth i have a question. I have a commuting xc bike in my garage and i would like to change its geometry a little bit by converting into sth like a monstercross bike by using dropbars and a rigid fork. I already got the fork but it is about 5cm shorter on the range of axel to crown. Will this change the geometry in a bad way like dropping down the bb to the ground ?

    I work in a bike repair shop in the UK and we use some pretty unique hacks. I have two in mind, here they are;
    1.we dont use soap to clean bikes and components, we use white spirit. It's cheap, comes in big bottles, and works miracles
    2.if you're swapping rims but are keeping the hubs and spokes, tape the new rim to the old rim and relace the spokes from the old wheel to the new rim. This will take much less time than relacing a rim from scratch

    Captain Marker here, why don't you just put Flags for marking the trail. If you don't have Flags use tree brunches and bind some color on top of them then stick them in the ground. Spray can seems to be the fastest way I got nothing else to comment.

    Hey Seth I love your channel, I'm not a new rider but I have a lot to learn still. Recently I broke a spoke (I have an old diamond back accent with factory rims and the rim breaks) I had to call it a day and I walked back to the trail head and drove home. So could you make a video for Trailside repairs and tools you'd take with you?
