Building Berm Park Ep 1 (Breaking Ground & Making History)

33 000 Views 601K

Finally after two years of dreaming, fundraising, and waiting, Berm Park is officially under construction! To build a public mountain bike park has been the subject of our Patreon page since 2019. We didn't know how we would do it or where it would be built, but piece by piece it came together. Now, with a combination of funding from Patrons and outside sponsors, we're building Berm Park in Canton, NC, USA within a larger park to be called "Chestnut Mountain Park".

The first trail completed was "On the Fly", by Diamondback Bicycles. Check out the line of hard tail mountain bikes the trail is named after here www.diamondback.com/mountain-...

Featured in this video @LIVE. RIDE. NOW and @Steady Spin

    I have lived in Waynesville almost all 24 years I've spent on this Earth, and have just over the past 2-3 months picked up mountain biking. This could not have been better timing, better believe I'mma be hitting this park every other day. If only I can gather the amount of balls it takes to make my first jump soon tho lmaoooo

    Hey Seth, I'm only 13, and I know that you are very busy. I am looking for a nice bike hopefully with full suspension. I cant afford to get a really expensive one because I don't get very much money from my paper route. My price range is from around $200-$500. I was wondering if you had any suggestions. I am completely happy with buying a used bike.

    I’m buying my first mountain bike in well over a decade. I don’t need much so I was thinking of the Diamond Back Atroz 2 or 3. does anyone have experience with this bike? I don’t have a great deal of money, but the Atroz 2 or 3 is only $1,200 to 1,700 for a full suspension bike. I would really appreciate some feedback if anyone has used these bikes.

    I hope you’re not still sponsored by box. I got a box one prime 9 and a box 2 prime 9 for my dad and both are trash groupsets. The shifting is crazy heavy and clunky, cable tension is pretty bad, the range is fine but there’s zero cadence control. It’s just a bad system. Like it works from a purely functional perspective, but I’ve moved to SRAM GX AXS on my Fuel and Shimano SLX on my Fuse and I realized how stupid I was to buy Into the box hype. They’re not SRAM or Shimano and it shows. Hell even Microshift is way better feeling. Im not at ALL saying you influenced my decision. I’m a big boy and I made the call to spend with them. I just regret it in hindsight now that I’ve used the real deal. Box is a ripoff and their engineering is years behind.
