wethepeople are now one of the most desirable bike brands around. They make excellent frames, good parts, and have a tight line of bikes with something for everyone. The Nova is built around a classic wethepeople frame. The all black frame and fork set is matched with a completely black set-up of parts, so this bike looks the part. Starting with the wheels, this year's Nova comes with new Alex X double-skinned aluminium rims with 48 black spokes and sealed high-flange hubs which have 14mm axles front and back. The all black wheels look killer.... The Nova will suit most size riders in most applications - be it street, skateparks, or dirt... this bike is a deal for £259. Ride magazine: Feb/March 2002.
