Mountain bike teeter totter plan

* This was originally posted on mudhunny’s blog but has been reprinted here since the old blog was ghetto (jeff’s fault).

yes! another excuse to bust out my favorite stationary – green engineering graph paper. the plan was to build a 12 foot long teeter-totter with an approach angle of 20-22°. the materials needed are as follows…

for the plank (rideable area):

  • 2 – 2x6x12
  • 6 – 1x4x11″

for the base:

  • 2 – 4x4x2
  • 6 – 2x4x7-1/4″
  • 4 – 2x4x32″ (30¬? cuts on both ends)
  • 2 – 2x4x30″
  • 2 – 2x4x55.5″ (optional supports)

for the pivot box:

  • 2 – 2x6x11″
  • 2 – 2x6x11″ (can be slightly shorter in length)

and to hold it all together:

  • 1 – 3/4″ steel rod (min length of 14″)
