The Tiger Mountain Cascadia Dirt Cup

The Tiger Mountain Cascadia Dirt Cup

So I did it! I raced my first Enduro and it was ####ing rad!

For those of you just joining my name is Christopher San Agustin and I am the founder of Broken & Coastal, an independent cycling magazine and design studio based in Portland, Oregon.

I am filming a video series documenting my experience as a first-time racer competing in the 2019 Cascadia Dirt Cup.

WTB Vigilante Mountain Bike Tire Review

WTB Vigilante Mountain Bike Tire Review

I've been running Maxxis Highrollers and Minions ever since I started Mountain Biking. This winter I wanted to try something different and ride something that was better suited for wet weather.

After doing some research, I pulled the trigger and picked up some WTB Vigilantes. Full disclosure I was able to get these tires at an industry discount which made the leap of faith that much easier. Money aside the reason I chose the Viginalte was for its huge Side Knobs and generous tread spacing.

Introducing Resolute 42: The All-Weather Gravel Tire

Looking for some 40s withs some more bite for your CX or Gravel rig? These new Resolute tires from WTB are looking really good. 42c, tan sidewalls and some nice bite to get rad on. 

The all-new Resolute 42 is the ultimate all-weather gravel tire for those who believe there is a perfect tread pattern for every ride. Small, square knobs deliver consistent bite into a variety of terrain, while the ample spaces between them prevent packing up when conditions become fun (a.k.a wet). Truly all-season in nature, its 42mm width makes it a set-it-and-forget-it gravel tire for endlessly undulating roads through all varieties of weather.

WTB Byway

WTB just launched a new tire called the Byway and they look awesome! The Byway's seem like the perfect adventure / bike touring tire. Let us know what you think below! 

Our most dirt-centric Road Plus tire yet, the Byway Road Plus tire delivers supple plus-size traction and smooth riding characteristics farther into the dirt. Staying true to its road usage, a slick centerline borders angular hatching to keep everything smooth on sections of pavement. Intermediate, diamond-shaped peaks provide steadfast traction under power, while consistent and more substantial side knobs extend down the side to protect it against ill-intentioned rocks or gashes while exploring new areas. With the same overall diameter as a 700 x 30mm road tire, Road Plus provides the option for two different riding experiences with the same endurance road bike. The Byway Road Plus tire allows riders to find comfort on remote gravel roads without being slowed down on the pavement required to reach them.
