    Any particular reason you want a wood lip?

    Make it out of dirt and you can change and modify it as you ride it.

    Ridemonkey has an entire forum dedicated to dirtjumping. I suggest you check it out, particularly the Sticky at the top of the page, which as it so happens, is chock full of ramp plans.

    btw - where's the thread about the cranks??? If you ask questions, perhaps other people would like to know the answer to them.

    DTG and i have experience with this. 8 foot radius is way too small, definitely go with a 10. And use 2 pieces of plywood to cut out the shape of the ramp, and then about 2 foot long 2x4's spaced out throughout the ply, with a lot more under the ramp surface, and cover with thin ply
