Shop owner knows his stuff

27 08 2010

Ever walk into a bike shop and get the feeling the guy behind the counter doesn’t quite “get” BMX?

Much less 24″ BMX?

I have a hunch that’s not going to be much of an issue if you shop at the Peddler Bike Shop in Austin, Texas.

Check out long-time BMX rider/Peddler Bike Shop owner, A.J. Camp, on a stock 24″ We the People Avenue from his shop.

2011 We The People Avenger 24″ preview

30 07 2010

We The People is back for 2011 with an update to the¬† Avenger 24″.¬† It was called the Avenue in previous years but it had a mid-season name change in 2010 to the Avenger.

Right of the bat, you’ll notice the look has changed to a cleaner glossy-red finish, right down to the cranks (a nice touch) with stripped-down graphics that are a bit on the basic, ho-hum side.

Notables include a new top-loading stem, 7″ bars, Odyssey tires, and double-wall rims.

However, a bit of a disappointment¬† is the 21.25″ top tube/15.23″ chain stay dimensions. I would have really liked to have seen a longer top-tube and a slightly tighter chain stay length.

All in all though, if you can get past the shorter top-tube, this is looks like it could be one of the better completes out there for the new year.

My apologies for the blurry picture.

It was the best I could find at the current time. I will link to a better image once it becomes available.

Update: We The People has posted an online version of their 2011 catalog.
