WTB Silverado SL55 saddle review WTB Silverado SL55 saddle review
WTB’s Silverado saddle has proven to be a popular choice amongst its intended cross-country / all mountain riding audience, but it’s also pretty common to see the seat attached to weight-conscious downhill and freeride rigs. Pinkbike.com received a few of these saddles for test purposes in January and I’ve been putting one of the samples through its paces since then to provide y’all with the longer-term lowdown on the SL55.

WTB Dissent 2.3 - Review WTB Dissent 2.3 - Review
WTB previously launched their Dissent tire as "the official tire of Whistler Mountain Bike Park", and boy did it work good on that "A-Line" style of terrain. The Dissent 2.5 was very predictable on dry dirt, but it was a disaster when it touched wet. The Dissent 2.5 was designed with a small channel, which ejects packed up dirt in your tire and so forth, which caused it to pack up in wet conditions.

This season WTB took the Dissent one step further with the Dissent 2.3. They made the profile slightly thinner, and made the channel slightly larger, and in turn created a wicked tire for the opposite side of the scale as its bigger brother, the soft/wet side!

Graffiti is something most people turn a stale eye to. The days of seeing epic murals on the side of a buildings are gone. All you see now is scribbles done by teenagers while they were just passing by. Graffiti and the streets go hand in hand, so when I saw the Graffiti UK tire by WTB I had to try them out. After receiving them and examining the Graffiti, I am stoked to see how these tires function. Designed for pavement to hardpack, and everything in between, the Graffiti UK tires are designed to be functional on all mediums.

So how does a tire that’s designed by some one so crazy hold up for the average Joe?

The Pinkbike crew gets to roll on the latest and greatest all too often. You guys call it "testing", while I call it living the dream. But what do we choose when we have to slap down some of our own hard earned coin on parts for our ride?

I've recently invested in a set of brand spanking new custom wheels for my all-mountain bike. I only wanted a set of wheels that approach the weight of XC race hoops, and something wide enough as to work good with 2.5" width tires, and sturdy enough to stand up to the odd booter or big gap if I am feeling zesty enough. That's not too much to ask for is it?

Little Johnny Goes to the Spa Little Johnny Goes to the Spa
So last summer I got a sweet little 4 inch travel bike that I named “Little Johnny”. Since I got the little guy we’ve managed to hit up almost every riding spot in the Lower Mainland plus a tonne of amazing trails in the Interior like William’s Lake, Kamloops, Kelowna, Merrit, etc …

To say the least, I’ve pounded Little Johnny pretty hard! To handle the bigger trails I built Little Johnny up to be quite beefy- 2.5 Maxxis Minions, a heavy dirt jump seat, a 5th element coil shock, and a 7 inch Boxxer World Cup. It got to the point where Little Johnny weighed more than my friend’s V10! It was definitely time for a trip to the spa for him!
