Y-Trallwng Skatepark Designs by ValleySideDistro (Design Proposal.3)

This is our third and final set of design visualisations (for the time being). You can see our first set of

designs HERE; and our second set of designs HERE. The Third Design features on-site car parking for

users of the facility and pubic services. Once again, these are only design ideas and in no way intended

to represent the final scheme design. Everyone has been encouraged to contribute ideas or designs for

consideration by the council and committee. If you visit our two earlier skatepark articles you will be able to find details on who to contact for more info.

Y-Trallwng Skatepark Designs by ValleySideDistro (Design Proposal.2)

“The Town Council has confirmed that a new state-of-the-art facility will be built by specialists Canvas, and that the town’s users will have the opportunity to play their part in its design and delivery.” – MyWelshpool.

“The bottom line is that we can expect to have a really good skatepark here in Welshpool by the end of next year (2024) at the latest,” – Welshpool Cllr, N.Howells, Town Mayor.

“The Town Council has struggled to find a company willing to take on the work, but a site meeting with Canvas has resulted in the specialist bespoke Skatepark designers and installers, getting the job. The work will start soon, with a detailed consultation process to be carried out over the coming months with the skaters and potential skaters, leading to drafts and final design selection.” MyWelshpool.

So without further ado, please check out our second conceptual scheme for Y-Trallwng Skatepark. Nb. Once again these are un-official design concepts, which have been generated in-house at ValleySideDistro. They are not to be mistaken by any content generated by Canvas or P.C.C. – Valleyside.

Y-Trallwng Skatepark Designs by ValleySideDistro (Design Proposal.1)

As you may or may not be aware ‘Y-Trallwng Parc Sglefrio’ has been given the go ahead with an 18 month deadline. The council have appointed a very reputable skatepark design and construction company. The design and build company has a fantastic portfolio of skateparks under their umbrella. With any hope the final skatepark/plaza will make provisions for shelter and flood lights. The public have been invited to contribute their design ideas for the park. Here at ValleySideDistro we decided to generate a few design solutions to add to the mix! These are prospective ideas and concepts and in no way are they intended to fool you into thinking they are final/official designs. We are doing this for the greater good of the democracy.

Words by Chris Smith…

Throughout 2015 I have been involved in the development of a new street frame by Impurity Bike Co. The initial motivation behind this project was to create a frame that is: A) Robust enough for burly modern day street and ramp riding with; B) Sensible angles and geometry for nose manuals, regular manuals, grinds, airs and; C) To be visually appealing.

Product News: The ‘VP VARIAL’ Headset (VP-USA)

One of the latest breakthroughs in the Mtb industry is the ‘VP VARIAL’ adjustable headset by VP Components – The headset allows 3 degrees of head angle adjustment – Fresh Huh!? The headset itself has been designed to allow 3 degrees of trail side adjustment! Furthermore, the stem can be adjusted within two minutes! Voila: The mountain biker now has a headset that can easily be dialled to the handling characteristics required – NICE!

Now the question… How long will it be before we see a BMX rider rocking one of these headsets??? A product like this could be very useful indeed to the modern day flatland rider – When working on front wheel tricks the headset angle could be set steeper; and vice-versa for rear wheel tricks! Obviously it could be used for street riding if could be proven to be strong enough – Again, mint when the time comes to to drop that (as Chad Degroot would say) “Front Wheel Boogie”!

Ps. Drop us a line if your a retailer interested in ordering VP Comoponents – Chris@VS
