WTP’s beach cruiser-inspired Avenger

21 09 2015

One of the first booth’s I made a beeline to at Interbike this year was We The People. I had heard rumors that We The People were going to have two (TWO!) cruisers in their lineup this year.

Avenger sideWhen I got to the booth those rumors were confirmed…not only was the 24″ Atlas returning to the lineup (more on that in a bit) but We The People (WTP) had put together a real…dare I say it?…show-stopping 26″ cruiser. Employing the Avenger name used on cruisers in previous model years, this particular iteration is like no previous version of the Avenger.

2016 WTP Avenger frontTaking style cues and inspiration from classic Laguna beach cruisers, WTP combined old school elements with modern-day tech to make a fun bike perfect for chill riding sessions and cruising the neighborhood.

To make the ride more responsive than the typical beach cruiser, WTP raised the bottom bracket a bit and tightened the rear end a bit.

No way.

WTP got it right by going with a standard seat/seat post combo.

It just makes you wanna get behind the bars and cruise, don’t it?

Avenger handlebarsWTP has made some great cruisers throughout the years but I have to say this one has really got me stoked.

I’m a sucker for shiny blue frames and tanwall tires too…so I can’t help being smitten by this bike.

The specs/particulars:

The frame on the Avenger is a full Hi-ten frame with a Cr-Mo downtube, the fork and bar are both 100% Cr-Mo.
