A fitting flashback seeing as I’m about to hit the road for a quick day trip to Posh!
Call me jaded, but having lived through the mid to late 2000s era of every schmo who had ever swung a leg over a twenty inch starting a BMX company, I generally don’t get too excited when I hear about a new brand being launched. There have been a few exceptions though, and hearing that UK legend Ashley Charles was starting his own brand was one of them. It’s been a little over a year and a half since Ash launched Relic BMX, and in that time their line has slowly and thoughtfully grown to include two stems, a sprocket,…
Looks like we’re going to need to remind Ride that us lowly trails riders still exist. Seeing as the last print issue was completely devoid of any trails or dirt content, I’m not really surprised that they didn’t feel the need to put one of our kind on the list of suggested riders for the readers choice award. Tisk, tisk, tisk… Clint has got my vote, you can write in yours HERE.
00:38 and 08:17 are are the times you want to remember/jump to in this latest Tall Order webisode. The first one is a bit of hilarity as some tweaker takes himself out by running into a pedestrian on the Hermosa Beach Pier. The second is a HEATED session at the Oakley Trails with Corey Bohan, Chris Doyle, Clint Reynolds, Anthony Napolitan and Sergio Layos!
Moe Russ put together this nearly 12 minute long edit of the good times he’s been having down in Austin, TX. He was hanging with the Credence Crew so you know there’s a ton of good stuff in here. Most of it is concrete, probably due to the weather, but if you jump to 08:53 you’ll find some action from Eastside. Crazy they actually had fish swimming through the trails at one point!
Here’s one that I didn’t see coming, but thinking about it, it makes perfect sense. Clint is now flying the flag for Relic! Seeing as things have been quiet with Clint’s previous parts sponsor (Tree) for some time now, I was thinking that it would be just a matter of time before someone swooped him up. Relic is a perfect fit if you ask me, and apparently Ashley Charles feels the same. You can check out what he had to say after the jump, and after you get done watching this quick welcome video!
Who would have ever thought back when Anthem II came out that Clint would be in the X Games? He’s an alternate this year so there’s a chance we may get to see him bringing a little of that signature trails style to the big show.
I’ll just leave this video from the good folks at X Games here in case you need a scientific explanation of how riding dirt works. The X Games player is funky so you’ll need to click into the post to see the video.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Doug Foulke’s edits. There’s just something about them that truly captures the pure essence of riding trails. I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted to post for a flashback edit this week, that was until I randomly stumbled back across this Sekt Mix from half a decade ago!
Looks like the Credence boys have teamed up with Empire on a pair of limited edition shirts! In white we have the “Rattlecan” design, and in maroon is the “Skull. The Rattlecan, as the name implies, is actually spray painted by Clint himself. Both are printed/spray painted on American Apparel shirts, and Empire already has them in stock and ready to rock. The Rattlecan will set you back a cool $19.95, and the Skull with its front and back print will cost you $21.95. Hit those links to grab them!
