Not going to lie, when we got the email from Wethepeople, we got super excited because we thought there was a new Max Gaertig video for us to check out. However, we were slightly disappointed when we realized it wasn’t, haha. But that’s okay, because Max has an interview on the Wethepeople website talking about the different frames he has rode over the years and why he’s stayed with Wethepeople since 2003! You can check that out right here… Maybe we’ll be seeing a new video from him soon, I mean… He has been on the team for 15 years almost!
The guys over at Freedom BMX hit us with a link to a video from the People’s Store Summer Games that went down the other weekend in Germany.

The Mad Max bars have been apart of Wethepeople‘s line since 2008 to cater to Max Gaertig’s style with a towering (at the time) 8.7″ rise. Not a lot has changed with the bars since, but for this year Max and Wethepeople decided it was time to sit down and revamp them to something new. Here we have a sneak peek look at just what they cooked up. These updated bars are made from 4130 “M2″ chromoly with a full liquid post-weld heat-treatment, a rise of 9.5″, width of 30”, 11-degrees of backsweep, 1.5-degrees of upsweep and a weight of 1.8 lbs. The 2015 Mad Max bars will be available in gloss black, translucent green, translucent blue and black Titan later this month.
