John: Thanks for getting to this. We need to make this trail safe first. Then address the other issues. The TTF Crew is on the scene. Lets let it lie at that.
Tim: Thanks for being open to other styles of riding than your preference. We are trying to make trails her that are good for many users. I anticipate that a lot of riders will be on this trail that are not used to having their tires in the air.
Dewayne: Lots of good points. We need to remember here that a lot of the discrepancy is in language. What is a roller to one person is a jump to another. What is really a water feature will be a drop to another. Also we have dramatically changed a trail that has been around for years, and that is change. Some don't like change. I think all of the feedback here has been meant to be helpful.
My $0.02, because I can
The work that was done made great changes and major improvements on the previous trail. Both for sustainability and fun factor.
There are always tweaks once a trail is built and you get wheels on it. On the bike the roller to me rides funky if you get air. If you ride it slow it is perfect. With air it wants to throw the rider forward. A little tweaking on the approach would make it great. The Front Side Roller with a log back is awesome. Lots of fun and rides great! If I saw one improvement it would be to replace the log backs with rock for longevity. Box elder logs we have found to last about two years. They are on the trail in many places.
So nothing that needs attention today, but if we are in the area working and have the materials we will get to it one day.
