Richie Dagger hit me up with a little news to pass on to you all. The remaining brown Trailife Shapers & Creators hats are now on sale for £10. That’s half of what they were before and it includes shipping. There aren’t a lot left so make your way over to the Trailife store sooner rather than later if you want one!
Our friends over at Trailife have a new hat out and available now! The hat features a particularly rad “Shapers & Creators” design embroidered onto a six panel cap. I should probably mention that these are limited edition and you should immediately get yourself over to the Trailife Mom N Pop Shop to secure one!
I saw this bouncing around Facebook yesterday and decided right then and there that it would be this week’s flashback post. I can’t even believe it’s been a whole two years since it came out! I’m still holding out hope that a part 2 will eventually materialize!
Though things over at Trailife have been pretty quite for the past year, I’ve still continued to check the site everyday hoping for some sign of life. After literally hundreds of disappointments, today was the day! Richie posted this short edit featuring footage from a heated session back in 2014 and a winter walk through the trails that he recently took after not being out there for a year. Fingers crossed that this is a sign of new things to come!
About this time last year I sat down and compiled a list of The Top 10 Trails Web Edits of 2013 (according to me). It wasn’t easy to whittle all of 2013’s edits down to just ten but I was happy with the final list. A few weeks ago I decided that I would keep the tradition alive and put together a list of 2014’s 10 best trails edits. This year was way tougher than last year! It really wasn’t too bad narrowing down a years worth of edits to just ten. A rainy evening, a few good beers and I was able to knock that out in just a couple of hours. What kicked my ass was putting those ten into any kind of order. Rather than putting that list out right away, I decided to marinate on it a bit and take a week to think the list over and make revisions as I felt necessary. So here we are today and I’m ready to present you “MY” list of the 10 best trails edits to drop in 2014. Feel free to agree, disagree, tell me I’m retarded, or whatever else in the comments. Hit the jump button for my picks!
Go ahead and enjoy part one of TRAILIFE’s “Dirt Waves All Day” again while we patiently wait for part two to drop! Also don’t forget that there’s still a week left to pre-order TRAILIFE’s awesome Shred Rocker shirt and hoodie.
Trailife is taking pre-orders for their next batch of “Shred Rocker” tees. They’ll also be available as a hoodie as well! Both printed on American Apparel garments and 100% bad ass. I’m really grateful that I got one of these from the last batch! Thanks Richie! Pre-ordering is open from today until April 6th when they’ll go to print. What’s really cool is that you can pick the size and color shirt/hoodie that you want the design printed on. Get over to Trailife’s Mom N Pop Shop to get amongst it!
Rather than putting out a full length video, Richie and the Trailife crew are releasing the footage they have online in parts. I’m certainly not going to complain because that just means that I get to see it sooner. Part one couldn’t have come at a better time. Spring is here, trail season is almost upon us, and this is some very welcome motivation to keep charging ahead with the trail mods so that this will be the best season yet!
Trailife just released one of the raddest shirts that I’ve seen in a long time! The Shred Rocker tee was designed by Richie, and is printed on good ol’ American Apparel 50/50 shirts. I suggest you make your way over to their STORE before they are all gone!
I spotted this on Trailife the other week and was instantly intrigued! Since I didn’t have anything going on at the time I decided I’d have a go at making one. That was until I realized that the recycle had just come and there wasn’t a can to be found anywhere. Second problem was that we were also out of rubbing alcohol. This little project wasn’t in the cards that day but fast forward a couple weeks and I stashed a few cans away and eventually remembered to pick up some rubbing alcohol at the store.
This dude does a really good job of explaining how to make this thing and it definitely works. Perfect for warming up some tea or hot chocolate at the trails on a day like this. Who am I kidding! You’re either a nut or apparently have access to a jackhammer if you’re moving dirt today.
Like I said, it works and it’s easy to make. You’ll definitely want to check out THIS SITE for some other stove ideas as well as a guide to different fuels you can use. I went with 91% rubbing alcohol and though it did work, it burned pretty dirty. By the time my little experiment was done there was a thick layer of soot on the outside of the container I was using to boil my water, and since it was an open container the water also had gotten a bit contaminated with soot. I’m definitely going to try out a cleaner fuel next time as well as a slightly different stove design.
