To celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Pete Sawyer's signature #STERLINGSERIES, we just re-upped his incredible promo video.
Whilst out in Riga last year filming for LIT, Ed, Pete and Max got a few sessions in at Ed's new local plaza. Filmed by Ben McPherson.
Pete Sawyer needed a reason to escape Wales so he drove up to Leeds to hang a while. He shot a bike check, popped a cheeky wall ride, had a flat white and that was lunch. Heres a run down of his current set up.
On July 5th the WETHEPEOPLE team will be in Koln, Germany and getting ready to hit the roads and autobahns for a week visiting BMX shops every single day!
Athens seemed like a perfect destination, the sun always seems to be shining and the spots always look like something from a super ghetto escape from LA meets the Gladiator film
Another Friday treat for you all. This week’s #FOURCLIPFRIDAY is brought to you by Pete Sawyer with some wild pegless lines from his local park in the UK.
Here’s our video including our riders from the 2014 Rebel Jam. Including runs from practice and finals from Ed Zunda, Mike Curley, Maxime Charveron, Pete Sawyer and Mo Nussbaumer.
Pete Sawyer had a few minutes spare before his flight back to Wales and decided to clock em in at the plaza downtown. Filmed and edited by Ben McPherson.
When I first got the chance to design my handlebar the formally named Wham bar I was so happy! Like most people nowadays I wanted a taller handle bar to make things a little easier and feel a lot nicer. I had been running the already high Mad Max bars (8.7") but thought I wanted a little more and had the 9.2" built, with a little more upsweep than most two piece bars (3°) to save your wrists a bit more on bigger drops.
Then being offered a frame and fork to match I was overwhelmed; It was such an amazing opportunity that I had to take it. I've always been interested in frame geometry and seeing how different parts could completely change the feel of how your bike rides.
I designed my bike to have a low BB height of 11.5 to give you the feeling you're really in the bike and not just standing on top of it, matching that with a nice 9" stand over to give it a nice tall feeling without having to borrow Ryan Nyquist seat post.
Its also got a 69° seat tube angle opposed to the traditional 71° to give it a shorter wheelbase while still allowing a lot of top tube clearance, which is something I look for in every frame I ride.
A short backend of 13.3" slammed, 75° head tube angle and the short wheel base all add up to having a very responsive while not being too twitchy frame, it comes in 21.2" 20.9" and 20.6" top tube sizes for everybodys different styles and sizes.
The forks are the ideal match for the frame with the drops outs being the same design, I had them made to a 32mm offset so they aren't too twitchy which is something that really gets to me with some modern forks.
