Building a skinny “snake tongue” bridge for mountain bikes


Today, we revisit "Snake Pit" trail, and make an alternate "intermediate" line. The main difference is, our intermediate line does not contain a gap jump. Brian and Alexander join me in this one! Check out their channels below

    Rajan Reddy I would suggest watching the video on Berm Peak Express where Seth upgrades his neighbors mountain bike. He goes over how good that diamondback is for a beginner at a good price. He also goes over some basic and more advanced upgrades in that video.

    Great job Seth! I would recommend you to do lighting and more accurate line signs on the trail so many people can come and ride it. I mean 10 buks, 3 hours per person. That would pay off and if there would be too many people, you can do way more trails

    You might think about getting a block and tackle pulley to increase the winches pulling power. So you guys don't have to man handle the wood so much.

    Hey Seth! I’m 11 and am starting to take an interest into mountain biking! My friend rides bikes on some of his back yard trails. I have some woods behind my house and some tools! It’s slightly downhill and there is a creek in the middle. I’m thinking I could either do just a bridge or go risky and put in a skinny. We have a big dirt pile too so I could make a some jumps and berms and I want it to be my summer project. My point being, you are really inspired me to get into Mountain biking and i love your content

    Dude, you are one tenacious builder, I bet so many people say I want to do what Seth does but 98 percent would stop there. It looks like you are doing quite well fulfilling your ideas and living your dream. Your channel is both fun to watch and a great place to learn about trail building, using your environment and getting ideas. I'm sure "keep it up" is obvious but keep it up, I'm waiting for the next episode on: ta ta ta... Berm peak, the place you want to spend your time during lock down, and probably during normal time as well. 🤘

    Maybe it's called a "Magic Carpet"? I've seen it at Ray's before; it's like a moving platform you ride on, hit the brakes, then glide to the other side. Hook it up to a pulley, and it resets itself! You'll should do one of those!!!
