Things are getting chilly over in Germany despite it being summer. The Wethepeople crew have been busy getting their new translucent “Ice Blue” colorway dialed in on their full range of BMX frames, bars and forks. We were able to get our hands on some photos of this color on everything that it is now available on worldwide through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Wethepeople! Let’s take a closer look!

Subrosa In Vegas

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

Here’s a BMX video we’ve been waiting to see for a few weeks now. The Subrosa crew made their way to Sin City for their annual team meeting and some serious spot destruction all around the city. Check out this video packed full of highlights from their time in Las Vegas because it’s seriously banger after banger. Must See for sure!

VIVA LA$ VEGA$!

You’re going to need to take a seat, turn the bass up, and enjoy 15 minutes of GOLD from Hoang Tran, Kyle Hart, Lahsaan Kobza, Scott Ditchburn, Nick Bullen (injured), Simone Barraco, Joris Coulomb, Kevin Kalkoff, Johnny Atencio (Johnny Ice), Jono Hopping and Matt Ray! With a crew like this, and Kanode behind the lens, you know you can expect greatness. Elvis would be proud.

We worked hard, rode hard, partied hard, hosted a Park Party, had our annual team meeting, and introduced you to the Subrosa A-Frame Rail. What more could you possibly want from us? This is our third year of destroying a city one spot at a time.
This year was special because we had a few extras on the trip from our Skeleton Crew and Flow team. Matt, Jono, and Johnny all hold it down! Oh and not to mention the man himself, Ryan Sher, snuck in a clip as well.

We want to thank Matt Closson and Wes McGrath for all their hard work and guidance.

Any requests for our destination next year?

Minor Details: BMX Frames

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

kink-sxtn-seat-stay-bmx-frame

When it comes to BMX frames these days, there are a lot of factors that come down to geometry that can alter the way a BMX bike feels and rides. Want to have more balance on your nose? Get a steeper head tube angle. Want to spin better? Get a higher bottom bracket height. Want to manual better? Get a shorter chain stay length. Need something better for barspins? Get something with a taller standover height. What about tailwhips? Shorter standover heights will make it easier to get over the bike. Now days, a 75-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 8.5″ standover height, 11.5″ bottom bracket height and 13.25″ chain stay length are pretty common geometries you will find on a frame. Sure, there might be a handful of frames that have similar (or the exact same) geometry, but what makes them different than the others? The “minor details” that are added on to a frame to give it an aesthetic touch, add strength or make for a cleaner fit when parts are installed. There are A LOT of frame options these days, so we decided to cruise around a handful of BMX brands websites to check out a few frames that have some details that make it stand out from other frames. Let’s take a look!

When you want things to change in your scene, sometimes you have to take the reigns and make things happen. For those of you that don’t know, we’re based out of Rochester, Minnesota. It’s not exactly the kind of place you would expect a site like this to be with so much of the BMX industry being in California, but we still make it work. One thing we have always done is worked to be involved with or making events happen up here to help bring the scene together and grow it. Recently, we were asked to work with a local group in the city to help out with a big 4th of July celebration that will feature live music, food and alcohol vendors, a car and motorcycle show and a BMX and skateboard contest. One of main goals of this event was to show the city council that there is a big BMX and skateboard scene to get them to see it’s time to expand the skatepark. Once we heard that, we were all for helping out with the BMX contest.

So, if you’re in the Minnesota area on the 4th of July, swing through Rochester and hit up the Silverlake Skatepark. We’ll be throwing the BMX contest at the park and we have a ton of prizes from our sponsors; The Shadow Conspiracy, Subrosa Brand, Fly Bikes, Profile Racing, Madera, Mutiny Bikes, Kali Protectives, Radio Bikes and Merritt, to giveaway!

Pre-Register
You can pre-register for the contest on The Commission website for $10.
Pre-registering will save you $5. You don’t pay anything until you show up for the contest the day of! So pre-register even if you aren’t 100%!

Silver Lake Skate Park

Here’s a flashback Friday BMX video for you! Our good friend Todd Nichols came across some old footage he filmed of Edwin DeLaRosa back in 2000! This was all filmed at a skatepark, but Edwin goes and drops a couple of crank flips, grinds and even a 540. Man, we wish there was more footage of Edwin floating around these days. Not enough, that’s for sure! Enjoy!
