Chrome and Metallic Red Wethepeople Patrol Frames

It looks like Wethepeople has decided to brighten up their Patrol frames with two new colors, chrome and metallic red. Specs and everything else remain the same as before. I will warn you that if you do decide to get one, please make sure you remember to also order yourself up some brake mounts with it as well; you know, since WTP does NOT include the brake hardware with it. Sorry to always be going all Silky Johnson on this thing! I really do want to like it, especially after seeing Willem Van Gansen’s Patrol setup in person, but stupid…

Wethepeople – 2017 Volta Complete Bike Promo

On the other hand, of course they were going to come out with some kind of promo to move this stuff. I guess we’ll just…

Wethepeople’s Patrol Line

What makes a frame a “trails frame”? That’s the question I found myself asking a few weeks back while I was jotting down frames to include in an upcoming trails frame buyers guide. There are a handful of frames that instantly come to mind that I don’t think anyone would disagree on calling trails frames. Deluxe’s PA Model, S&M’s Credence frames, United’s T.R.U, Mutiny’s Villij, FBM’s Steadfast, etc… But what per se is it exactly that makes them trails frames? Geometry was the first thing that popped into my head, but as I really thought about it I came to…
