Here’s something I couldn’t be more excited to get my hands on! DIG Issue 99.5 is a 164 page high quality large format limited edition book that marks their first print release since returning to their independent publishing roots. Of course I can’t wait to check out Rob Dolecki’s “Ode to Posh” and the unseen photos from him and a host of other DIG photographers, but I’m also just a excited to see/read all of the other content they’ve included. You’ll find the rundown of just what that is below, and you can get your hands on a copy HERE…
Palm Bay Florida’s Grapefruit Trails are the subject of the third episode in Profile and DIG’s DIY Documentary series. Shawn Bilslend gives you the scoop on the place, and a whole crew of characters (including one Rob Nolli) put it to use.
Keith Terra has a piece up on DIG discussing whether or not a broken planet (pertaining to the seasons) makes for better trails. Without jacking their piece and going off on my own tangent about it, I’ll register my two cents with a simple “No.” Head on over to DIG for Terra’s take on the subject, as well as some damn fine pictures from a mid-December session at Keyko.
Clint Reynolds’ “Fascist Killing Machine” is the subject of the latest DIG Setups. Along with the bike check we also get a little interview that contains a few tantalizing bits of info. Credence grips, even bigger bars, and the possibility of a Credence tire! Head on over to DIG for the bike check and the full scoop!
I was definitely hoping there would be more trails footage in Sergio’s new Fly Bikes edit that’s been getting hyped so hard this week. We only end up getting about 20 seconds of El Cable and Lloret, but it’s Sergio Layos so you know know the rest of the edit is still really good. Nonetheless, 02:19 is where you want to go if you don’t care about any of that other stuff. Spotted on DIG
I had no idea how much you guys liked this top 10 trails web edits thing until emails started pouring in over the last couple weeks asking if I was going to be doing it this year! Truth be told, I’ve been nibbling away at it since the beginning of the month but all the traveling that I’ve also been doing slowed things down a bit. It’s always a pretty tough job putting this list together, but this year was the toughest yet. After going back through 2015’s videos I ended up with a “short list” of a few dozen…
Dig adds one more to their trails playlist with this rockin’ Tanner Trails edit from Seth Huot. Mike Szczesny is always killing it, but he’s on an absolute tear in here! Not to take anything away from Kurt Perkins, Jonsey Fedderson, Garrett Holm, and Chris Flook, who also contribute their fair share of awesomeness to this edit!
Thanks to Dig and Ryan Hallett we get to start off the morning with this fine edit of Andy Cameron and Kona Hellier roasting the absolute hell out of Decoy! That left hip that they have there is what dreams are made of (my dreams at least)!
Dig dropped this Freedom 40 Trails edit that Brian Barnhart made, right in the midst of that huge onslaught of trail videos that all came out at once. I was a big fan of it, so I definitely think it deservers a bump back up to the top!
I don’t know what the fuck is going on but the last few weeks have been absolutely exceptional as far as trails edits go. Keeping the streak going is this new edit from the Freedom 40 Trails that Brian Barnhart put together for Dig. He moved out to the Santa Cruz area a year and a half ago and joined the existing crew of guys who keep Freedom 40 rolling. Brian’s not too shabby behind the lens, so it was only a matter of time before he cranked out a proper edit from his new home spot!
