Thinking about picking up a new BMX frame? The crew over at Wethepeople over in Germany have released their Message Frame in this brand new Galactic Purple colorway that might just be what you’re looking for if you’re a technical ramp rider! The Message frame is mae from butted, 4130 seamless Japanese chromoly tubing with a 75.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 11.5″ bottom bracket height, 8″ standover height and a 12.95″ chainstay length (slammed) / 13.2″ (centered). The frame has a CNC machined and heat-treated integrated head tube, gussets on the top and down tubes, an extruded top tube with integrated cable guides, CNC machine and heat-treated Mid bottom bracket, low profile integrated seat post clamp, a wide rear triangle with clearance up to 2.50″ tires, 6mm thick, laser cut and head-treated dropouts and Pivot-3 Type removable brake mounts (hardware not included).
The Message frame is available in 20.3″, 20.6″ and 21″ top tube lengths with a weight of 5.32 lbs. (21″). If you aren’t feeling the Galactic Purple but you do like the geometry, the frame is also available in Metallic Yellow, Metallic Orange and Glossy Black ED. You can pick this frame up through BMX shops and mail-orders that carry Wethepeople worldwide now.
What do you think of the Galactic Purple colorway? It looks like it changes color a bit when the light hits it just right. Either way, we think it looks awesome!

The Wethepeople team recently rolled through Los Angeles to do some shop stops and cruise the spots. Here’s a video Fernando Gomarin Olaiz put together from the stop at Oriol Bike Shop, along with the session at the skatepark and a few street spots after before the cops shut things down! There was a big turn out and no shortage of dialed riding going down, so hit play and check out everything that went down!
“Shout outs to Oriol Bike Shop, Grant Castelluzzo, Dan Kruk, Jesse Romano, Reagan Riley, Mike Stahl and everyone involved.

Tom Weikert is now doing it for Wethepeople over in Germany! We aren’t too familiar with Tom, but we would imagine if Wethepeople picked him up, he’s dialed on and off the bike! Here’s a few words direct from Wethepeople about the news…
“Today we are beyond excited to welcome fresh blood to the Wethepeople family. 18 year old Tom Weikert hails from the South of Germany and has been blowing minds just about every time he sets his feet on his pedals. Tom might not be a name you’re familiar with right now, but expect that to change from today.
We got the chance to hang with Tom a few times over the Summer, and after seeing just how hard he rides, combined with his positive and hard working attitude, it only made sense to bring him on board our international AM team. Tom just built up a brand new Dan Kruk BATTLESHIP setup and will be making the journey to Cologne next month to come stay with his homie Felix Prangenberg to start work on his first Wethepeople project. Take a look at Tom’s new setup and find out a bit more about our new secret weapon from Germany.” – Wethepeople.
You can get a closer look at Tom’s brand new Battleship setup with a bunch of photos and a full parts list on the Wethepeople Website!
Felix Prangenberg goes to work on spots in California!
