The 2017 We The People (WTP) Atlas is getting a little added “Wow factor” this model year with a new candy apple red paint job.
Topped off with chrome and polished parts from WTP and SaltPlus, this 24″ is a real looker.
It’s a bit reminiscent, in colorway terms, of the 2011 Avenger.
Of course The Avenger, as you might recall from last year’s Interbike coverage, has now morphed into a 26″ retro-style cruiser in the WTP lineup.
But I digress…
The Atlas, besides its eye-catching new candy apple colorway, hasn’t changed much in the geo/specs department since the previous model year.
But in the case of the Atlas, there isn’t much need to.
It sports a full cromo frame, fork and handlebar.
The specs are also on point:
- Head tube: 74 degrees
- Seat tube angle: 72 degrees
- Top tube length: 22″
- Chain stay: 14.6″
- BB height: 12.7″
- Stand over height: 9.7″
The roomy 22″ top tube, high-but-not-too-high bb, and short-ish chain-stays suggest this might be just the ticket if you’re looking for a more trails-oriented 24 (the Kenda “Small Block 8” tires are also another hint in this direction).
It’s hard to go wrong with this bike…and with its eye-catching new colorway, it’s kinda hard to resist.
