Hi all.

If you ride Mullet or the Luge on Galbraith, please note that there are new jumps and some have been reshaped. Please take a look at them before you hit them. If you do stop to check them out, please don't stand on trannys or block them with your bike as riders are coming into them with speed - as a grom from y'day can probably attest to...

Mullet:
The new ladder jump at the end of Mullet is hitting fine (several of us hit tranny and a couple cased it), but the new approach is pretty soft and we need to do some bermwork to get more speed. That will happen with the next rain, I suspect. Also, we ran out of materials and time and there's not a downramp to that ladder (yet).....so either commit and send'r or just ride around (for now). The stump hip is still good to go as well.

Luge:
The table on the upper luge section got some pavers in the face and it's popping you more now. You don't need as much speed exiting the left berm before it now.

There's a new ladder stepdown where upper luge and old luge meet up. Again, new berms and trailwork will need to firm up with rain. I hit this a couple times and came up short (it's caseable)....

Enjoy the new goodness and be safe ya'll.

Few pics of Mullet jump. It's a very "Galby-friendly" 16' lip to lip

Early on. Matt S. helped me get the angles for the jump dialed. Thanks Mattie. He also guinea pigged it for us and stuck it both times.


Adam checking out the tranny design. This is early in the day and approx. 1/2 way done. The guys from Hidden Wave board shop did a killer job on this..


Ian tamping in the Tranny (sorry Ian, only pic I've got of the finished tranny). FYI, this is still very soft. Adam, Raymond, Mason, Matt, Victor, Ian and many other folks put hours of dirt work into this.


Sideview. Jumps a bit taller than waist high.


Approach. Victor checking out the jump.

Wait a minute! That is not "Galby-friendly". If it were the tranny would be smaller and flatter...also, there would be a 90 degree hair-pin turn 5 feet after the jump...with a giant hole in the berm.

I better go up and "reshape" it to fit the historic Galby building standards.

All good points, Geo. We are attempting to build appropriately sized transitions for jumps these days. Crazy, as that sounds....

However, if you do crave a proper "Dan-sition", go hit the new stepdown on the Luge. The two berms in front of it are like talcum powder helping scrub any speed you've got.....that should allow you to get a good ole fashioned "huck to flat"! None of us are worried about it since everything is so ridiculously soft/dry right now, but I think I officially killed my cracked Mission on that y'day. :p

EDIT: Just got some pics of the new Mullet jump tranny. Those guys moved a sh*t-ton of dirt.


Looking up. You can see the stump hip on the right. The ladder sits 10-12 feet further back and will offer up a cool left-to-right transfer option.....hence making the tranny so tall on the outside.


Close up of the jump and tranny.

Nice! About time Galby got some good sized berms and landings! :band:

That place is so much more fun to ride now than it was 5 years ago. A lot has gone in since then. :D

We're feeling the drought at Duthie too. Looks like we could break the old dry-day streak in Seattle by 5 days! We're at 27 now, record 29 I think, and we could keep going through this week. On the plus side, snow levels in the mountains should be damn low right now! :)

Manbearpig is causing this weather!

I'm cereal!

Ride-arounds? It's hard to tell in the pics. Nice work, too bad I can't hit that sh1t.

Monte,

You can currently ride between the ladder and the stump hip and just go over the tranny. The new stepdown on the Luge is totally rollable already.

I'll be putting in a downramp for the ladder on Mullet when I get the chance.
