07/02/2019 — 0

Wethepeople PRO Ed Zunda just built up a fresh setup for 2019. That Pastel Mint AWAKE Frame looks incredible with the all black parts package. Ed recently made the switch to our INDEX frontload stem and our new HELIX complete wheels. Find out more about Ed’s new setup and why he’s so stoked on it.

FRAME – WTP Awake (signature model, 21.1”, Matt Pastel Green

FORK – WTP Battleship 24mm offset

BAR – WTP Stallis (Dan Kruk sig.) 9.25”

STEM – WTP INDEX Frontload

HEADSET – WTP Compact

GRIPS – WTP Hilt XL

CRANK – WTP Logic 170mm, with WTP Mid BB

SPROCKET – WTP Pathfinder (Felix Prangenberg sig.) with bolt-on guard, 25t

PEDALS – WTP Logic

SEAT – WTP Team Slim Pivotal

POST – WTP Socket Pivotal with built in 17mm ratchet

FRONT WHEEL – WTP Helix Front Hub, Logic Rim

REAR WHEEL – WTP Helix Freecoaster Hub, Logic Rim

PEGS – WTP Dill Pickle Pegs

You’ve recently joined a few other on the Wethepeople team and made the switch back to a frontlaod stem and slim seat. Was there a specific reason behind this? Do you think this is a new “trend” which will catch on with more riders?

I’ve had a slim seat for a year now, it just looks sleeker and cleaner. I don’t really see the point of needing a fat seat unless you sit down all day. With the stem, it’s kinda the same, it just looks nicer in my opinion. It was time for a change and i’ve never liked super tall bars anyway. It looks super nice and feels perfect for me. Hard to say if it’s a trend but i think more riders will for sure try it out.

What kind of modifications do you have to do to your bike when building up a fresh one?

I used to cut the bars down a little bit, but the Stallis bars are perfect at 28.5”. They just feel perfect out of the box. I always cut the post down, I used cut my fork steerer too but since we changed to the 127mm head tube on the AWAKE frame I don’t need to any more. I always stretch my grips too. Thats it, not much. Luckily there isn’t too many things I need to do these days, WTP made it all too easy for me haha

You’re riding the new Wethepeople Helix Freecoaster, can you explain some of the advantages and changes on this new version?

I actually took it apart when I got it, and instantly realised how much easier it is to work on because of the push on cone on the driver side. You don’t need a wrench any more which is great. The hub work perfect and is super smooth, the friction is more stable and the axle is beefier which is only a good thing. I like that is comes with guards too, way more convienent.

The new Wethepeople Logic pedals have dropped and by the sounds of it you had a lot of input on the design. What exactly is important to you when it comes to a pedal and what was some of the input you gave the design team?

It was a great experience since I’m super picky and specific about pedals. I personally like when the platform is bigger, its nicer on the feet and puts less stress on them. Plenty of pins, and larger size pins so they don’t wear down as fast. Super important that they are strong, no one wants to snap a pedal on a big landing. The pedals fit the rest of the WTP line which is important for me since I ride a full 100% setup and i want my ride to look clean.

How do you deal with living in such a cold country during the winter and how do you still keep up with riding when the weather is bad?

It’s hard, I can’t lie. You have to stay positive. Luckily we have a good indoor spot which I get to ride every day. Winter is slow but you have to just concentration the good weather and travelling the rest of the year.

What’s the secret to locking in nose manuals? It seems you maybe have a secret button hidden somewhere on your bike…

I wish haha! Its hard you just got to find that magic point. Some days they work perfect, others not so good. You just have to keep working at them and it will happen.

JĀNIS BAUSKA 16MM FILMU PROJEKTS

06/12/2018 — 0

Lūk divu labāko draugu – Jāņa un Artūra – romantiskais rudens kopdarbs. Bauskas kungs kameras priekšā un Lūriņa kungs lēcas otrā pusē ir jau kļuvusi par firmas zīmi Latvijas BMX pasaulē. Abi džeki pavisam drīz ķersies klāt jaunam projektam, bet pagaidām visa uzmanība uz viņu jaunāko garadarbu!

  

This is a very interesting project done by our team rider Janis Bauska and his long time friend and BMX videographer Artūrs Lūriņš.

Here’s a few words from Artūrs Lūriņš on how all of this came to life:

“When you live together with your good friend, who is always up to all your crazy ideas and ready to hit the streets at any time, there is more chance to have something fresh at the end! This time it happened like this. Some time ago I attented the Baltic Analog Lab filmmaking event – a workshop16mm colour workshop to be exact. Each of the participants had a chance to shoot a few meters of 16mm film and hand process it afterwards. At the end of the day we already watched end result on a projector! T’was an amazing experience. After about a month I got digitalised footage from the good guys at BBrental.eu / Camera Rental. Wbat you’re watching is a cut result from just 2 minutes of overall footage! It features the last sunny days at our local Grizinkalns district in Riga, Latvia. True autumn romance in the city!”

FILMA DĀVIDS UN GOLIĀTS

11/11/2018 — 0

Latvijas BMX frīstaila scēnā labi pazīstamais Krists Kaņuks un viņa brālis Kristaps ir kļuvuši par galvenajiem varoņiem dokumentālā kino cikla “Latvijas Kods” filmai “Dāvids un Goliāts”.

Režisoru Sandija Semjonova un Olafa Okonova veidotā filma Dāvids un Goliāts ir stāsts par diviem brāļiem – Kristu un Kristapu Kaņukiem. Vecākais brālis Kristaps kopš dzimšanas ir piesaistīts ratiņkrēslam, un viņam ir runas grūtības, bet, pateicoties ģimenes atbalstam, viņš spējis attīstīt repa talantu. Savukārt Krists aizrāvies ar BMX Freestyle braukšanu un ir viens no Latvijas labākajiem braucējiem šajā disciplīnā. Filma ir par jauniešu sapņiem, talantu, atbildību vienam pret otru, spēju nepadoties un priecāties par dzīvi un saprast tās vērtības.

LTV projekta vadītāja Zane Valeniece norāda, ka šogad Latvijas koda stāsti arī skatītājus iedvesmos uzdrīkstēties: “Jebkura uzdrīkstēšanās ir notikums, kas ievieš kaut ko jaunu un paliekošu. Ir ļoti būtiski vienmēr būt ceļā uz uzdrīkstēšanos, un to šogad pierāda arī visu stāstu varoņi,”

Filmas pirmizrāde norisināsies 11. novembrī (šodien) Nacionālās Kino balvas “Lielais Kristaps” pasniegšanas ceremonijas ietvaros.

Nākamnedēļ visi laipni gaidīti uz īpašajiem labdarības seansiem kinoteātrī kinoteātrī K Suns (17. novembrī, 16.00) un Kuldīgas kinoteātrī (9. decembrī, 13.00). Visi ziedojumi par filmu nonāks Kaņuku ģimenei.

Attiecīgi šī ir ne tikai iespēja redzēt brāļu stāstu, bet arī palīdzēt Kristapam veseļoties.

18. decembrī arī filmas pirmizrāde LTV ēterā.
