i need some advice for building a rail for next winter.how do u make it?
depends on how tech you are and what you are looking for--you can buy like a ten foot round metal pipe for super cheap and make a ghetto stand for it if you are just starting out or you can get a pro welder to make one for you if you're looking for a more technical one - it might be the way to go if you really want quality. draw up some rough plans and go get an estimate

PVC mounted on wood or 2 steel poles screwed on wood
why are doves the international symbols of peace? why not pillows? they have 2 times as many feathers and not that dangerous beak!
its 4:19 do you know where your kids are?
mauii has a good article... its a good idea
I have an s-rail, rainbow, roller coaster, battle ship, downkink, and 27 foot straight rail, all in my yard. I am working on a good article now. I will post some pics of some of what Im doing.
Ya so I'm making a really sick park in my backyard for next year. I drew up some quality plans for a box a 20' long kink , a straight rail, a c-rail, and maybe a rainbow as well as quarter pipe and a real big step down jump. Send me a message if you have any questions.
Those are what I am working on now
^ pretty sweet.

cruz, how did u bend the metal?
the walrus is in the barn - brad holmes
did you use a tree to bend it as a pivot
How good your own rails turn out really depend on how much time and money you wnat to spend. If you want an cheap and easy rail buy some pvc. Its pretty easy to maked kink rails with pvc aswell. But if your lucky like me and have your own welder you can make some sick metal rails. Yeah ive got a couple of small straight metal rails and im planning to build a double kink. But building the rails is alot of work.
SimFSR400- don't bother with the quarter pipe its going to be too much work and its not going to be that good, just stick to rails and boxes in your backyard.

it you have rusty metal, just put a coat of spray paint on it, as you slide on it, the rust will wear off w/ the paint making a perfect rail. my dad puts towers up so i get some sick rails. tower sections are great cause the have a stand built in to them.
if you dont want to do any work, you could try your high school metal shop. i went to our metal shop, and asked the teacher if i could buy some metal for a rail, and he said that he could order any metal, and he could have one of his students weld it and buid it how i wanted it.
I just sand it all off, it comes off really clean.
To bend the rails, find 2 trees that are close together and put the pipe in between them.
Also, about the rust. Just get a power sander and sand it off, it comes off really clean. Then just give it a coat of spray paint. If you notice, the rainbow is already all sanded, it took me about 2 hours to do, nothing hard.
Hey pipe monkey, what are your rails made out of? Mine are steel. Can you bend steel between 2 trees? And I'm makin my quarter pide out of wood first so I don't have to use a shit load of snow.
cruz ur house is scary !'_'!
This sucks i am not skiing
im going to your house cruz.then back to my house. i got sick rails. im gonna make a rail line. like 3 rails in a row.
east coast represent
dynastar fo life
Yea next year I think Im gonna make a slopestyle course. Like a 20 foot table, straight rail, S rail , and then battleship, its gonna be awesome.
you can make boxes really easy too, just make one outta wood then screw down a couple sheets of like plexiglass...

Hey Cruz do you use those in the summer too or do you not really have a hill to take off from, if you do could you explain to me what you do then a little more? thanks
Not being able to speak is not the same as not speaking. You seem as if you like to talk. I like to let people talk who like to talk. It makes it easier to find out how full of shit they are.
Yea, I use my other straight rail in the summer. The trick is to have it really downsloped, then you can almost just hop onto it and since it is downhill you dont need barely any inrun.
cruZ- how big is your yard?
i live on a farm in the east so i got big hills and lots of open areas. i use hay/multch to build up jumps in the fall. it works well. if i really work at it i can keep a nice park all winter. my niegbors use it more than i do.
hey cruz..i live 45 min west of saratoga...how far r u from there...we should do something

'who cares what they think, i'm sure the slaves didn't like the plantation owners, but we all know who was living better.'PHROSTY!
as if those rails were bent by hand/trees, they are fucking awesome man
Smoking pot leads to uhh... I forget.
'What time is it?.. Saturday?
Ok, Does everyone know where rochester NY is? If you look directly south of there, you will see a lake....Conesus lake. I am on the east side of it.
Really they were, its all technique. You bend a little in one spot, then you move to another spot and bend there, and build it up little by little. It takes me about 20 minutes to do one curve and make it nice and smooth.
Cruz what are your rails made out of?. By that I mean wehat kind of metal
Oh ya and one more question for you cruz, how much does a welder cost? Can you use an acelytene torch?
you can get a used welder for 200-300 bucks. an acetylene torch is for bending and cutting metal.
if u really want someone who knows what they are doing email jesse james or one of his bros at west coast choppers. i met a few of the guys last year at a bike show in daytona and i was asking him how and what i should use to build rails. he said email my plans to him and theyd help me out and tell me people on the east who can bend them. i now have a perfect c-rail, 2 flat to down kinks and a ever so sweet rainbow
