    wait, i might have found my answer. i think walmart has the little plastic ramps. has anyone bought them? i actually wanted to buy some and "cap" off some dirt jumps i made in the woods for mtb "free riding".

    i'll obviously make sure it is safe. these little plastic jumps look like they might make for a nice jumps in combination with some dirt underneath. has anyone done this? i just have no help building the jumps and using dirt can be tedious and make you feel like you are getting nowhere. i thought this might save a little dirt on the upper part of jump.

    thanks

    Probably wal-mart. I don't know why you'd want one though, they're ******** as ****.

    edit - Too slow.. I don't think they'd work too well as part of a dirt jump, part of the good thing about dirt jumps is you can change the angle and everything, and tires hook up on dirt a whole lot better than plastic, so transfers might be easier.
