  • Dostie's View

    There hasn't been much discussion about Craig's Youtube collab with Freeheel Life. There's some great content and explanation about gear and hacks.

    The original video from 8 months ago.

    And here's the most recent.



    If nothing else, it's worth watching the evolution of Dostie's covid coiffure.

    Dostie Knows!!! I just read his "simple telemark buying guide" from a link sent by Freeheel life to my email... I suppose that I think he's so smart because I agree with him on 99.9% of the things he says. For me, If I am unsure about something, I ask Dostie what he thinks.

      Watched them all today and must say they are brilliant. Nice bite sized episodes well paced and packed with information and style. Dostie- Thanks for being Dostie!

          Nice one. Not sure this is the correct place to comment but.... doesn't snow now pack in the duckbutt clasp thingy so you can't just step in when it's time to transition? And I like flat touring.

            That does happen. I put anti-ice tape on both the horizontal and vertical surfaces of the claw. It doesn't completely prevent icing when touring, but it means I can clear out the ice with one good poke of the pole, rather than chipping away at it like I'm making a mint julep.

                  Re: Dosties View 12,
                  Interesting to note "A Ramp !" for step in . Well the Spike bulldog binding has had a "ramp" for immediate step in for years. And it only takes a light push down with ski pole, on the black nylon heel throw to release the boot heel.

                    If you look at Dosties View 12, at 2:06, in the new spring box, there is a square hole at the back of the "claw" that will allow snow to be expelled , from the claw as you step in . Surprised he didn't mention that.

                      chamonix Is that hole maybe just the recess where the vertical tab on the "red stick" normally goes? If he's running the "Powder Casing" plug instead of the red stick, I suppose it just becomes a thru-hole. Intentional or not, this seems like a good thing! It seems like the hole could be made even bigger if the plug were glued in further forward and the red stick mounting features were cut away.

                        If my memory serves me well, Pierre mentioned this hole to evacuate snow. But, unless that snow is light and blowing in the wind, I don't think it will go through that hole.

                            What, some boots randomly not working with Meidjo? No dealers near me where I can have hands on and make sure they are compatible. Shipping in rural BC is weeks, not days, so the thought of having to exchange boots is daunting. Then there is the no icing vs flat tour dilemma. I already was trying to wait for the new light Scarpa boots that may never see the market. I am impressed to see the development of this binding as a real option. It still is more than just cost to hold one back though. This is just the latest example of the industry limitations on tele growth.

                              Hard hitting gear reviews that you've come to expect.



                              While we are on the topic, if anyone has a spare pair of those red G3 leashes that everyone hates, I could use a pair.
