We the People 24s through the years

24 10 2009

Maybe I’m in a reflective mood today but I was thinking about We the People and how they’ve been putting out some great 24″ completes over the years.

2007 Unified

Their first 24″ bike (I think)…black with a grey fade paint job. It featured nods to the past, like a National Pro style frame gusset and looptail rear stays but the ride is every bit the modern cruiser.  I’m still riding one of these today (albeit with a few mods). Great bike.

2008 Unified

Similar to the 2007 model, WTP steps it up with gold components to give it even more of a classic old school feel. Essentially the same geometry. I really like the look of this bike (but I’m a sucker for gold components).

2009 Avenue

Big departure from the classic black and gold look. The gusset is gone and it drops some weight. Geometry still pretty similar. Some compromises in parts–like steel bars–but still a lot of bike for the money.

The bottom bracket gets raised, the bars get taller and the gold components return. WTP joins Sunday, Fit and others with updated geometry aimed at providing a 20″ freestyle feel to a 24″ bike.  This model may tempt a few people contemplating buying a Sunday Model-C complete (given that Sunday’s looking at a spring release).

Limited edition models

We the People has also done some  limited edition bikes for companies such as Carhartt. These are are really cool…lots of retro-styling combined with new school technology.

I’m curious if anyone has ridden a Fit CR24 & a Sunday Model C to find out how they compare. Are the geometries basically the same? I want a 24 now so I have to decide whether to build up a Model C with my existing 20″ parts or buy the Fit cr24 complete. Any suggestions?
