is the reciprocating saw dewalt if it is how much did it cost
the_burrito_master (author)  2 stroke 3 years ago
I think it's a black n' decker (or whatever that company's called) and I wouldn't know cause it's my dad's but. I think they range in price from like 50- 150$ depending on their power and various somewhat useless functions.
cool thanks
just a tip

when you want to actually learn how to ride

take a look

dont be afraid to try something else

and dont just ride off the lip of your little bump
I don't just ride off I jump off , but that was then this ramp is now dead. :(

what else can one do on a ramp this size I don't think i could even attempt a *360 that's just asking for a broken arm.
i skateboard, but i have seen guys do flat ground 360s with moderate effort. achievable with a few years of pratice.

Can bunny hop almost a foot with that bike maybe 3 inches with a mountain bike.
you could twitch half exup IDK how to spell it and you could bar tap these are begginer tricks and meant for a ramp this size

If you made the ramp longer and possibly less of a curve at the end you would go much farther. I make non permanent ramps out of bocks of wood and ply wood 2 feet high and get around 15 feet in distance and 3 feet of air. Good construction though
TheChemiker4 years ago
That's not 5 feet of air. That is maybe 2-3 feet.
dought the bike wieghts 10lbs
dont you mean knex_bulider_freak
yeah.

Omg! Your house is HUGE and your garden is like a park! You lucky and probably rich person!
the_burrito_master (author)  Storm9506 years ago
not rely but we are happy with what we have.
I mean your garden is seriously about the size of our local park and your house looks awesome!
the_burrito_master (author)  Storm9506 years ago
well thanks where are you located? I think your not from around here because we call a "garden " a yard. my dad is the rich one not me.
I come from Britain :D.
the_burrito_master (author)  Storm9506 years ago
I come from burger and high collesterol land aka America.
I come from Schwarzeneggerland, AKA the Cali-vada desert. You probably live up north, like Montana. Some place where it rains more than once a year. Have you ever experienced a rainyish day? I have. It is when it is raining, but it is so hot that the rain evaporates before it touches the ground, resulting in a soaked shirt and dry shoes.
the_burrito_master (author)  Whaleman6 years ago
yeah I herd of that but it never actually happened to me. Ohio... we have like 6 huge storms every summer ,8 littler storms ,and every 4 days or so it rains.
Meh, Seattle still gets more rain.
the_burrito_master (author)  Whaleman6 years ago
yeah but its more rain than you get. what are the temperatures like?
Temperatures for me? During the spring and summer, usually over 100, rarely below 90. And during fall and winter, it is usually around 70-80, with a couple of cloudy days scattered here and there.
the_burrito_master (author)  Whaleman6 years ago
thats my winter home! wow people around here if it goes over 78* they cry if there air conditioner doesn't work XD. we rarely use air conditioners.
People here get angry that it's cold if it is under 70; I am usually the only one who wears sandals and a jersey when it is raining.
the_burrito_master (author)  Whaleman6 years ago
meaning when it rains it gets cold and people get cold I know how people like that are we had our uncle and aunt come over from Arizona. They came in sweaters and pants when we had our fire place on that makes one room of the house 89 degrees. We are in t-shirts and shorts siting there like what the hack?
I am from Nebraska, which has "sucky" weather; blazing hot in the summer and below freezing in the winter, so weather doesn't affect me much. I actually prefer the cold weather over the warm weather.
Below freezing? You poor thing! It gets -40 where I live :-(
where do u live LOL
Southern Manitoba
FUNNY lol :)
