Exclusive – Wethepeople Sterling Frame & Fork Test

The observant of you will have noticed a few changes with The Merged recently. Namely our shiny new logo as well as a few minor cosmetic changes to the site. With all these changes, we got thinking. As fun as it posting content from all the awesome brands we get to work with, we decided that it was time for us to up the amount of original content we produce and start doing our own series of web edits dedicated to testing out some of the new products we get sent, and seeing how they perform once built up.

What you see above is the first in a series of exclusive product tests here on The Merged in collaboration with our regular contributor Yakob Swyer, our new filmer/editor and art director Sam White and the rest of the team. So for the first test, the good folks over at Wethepeople hooked us up with a beautifully slick Pete Sawyer signature Sterling frame and fork combo in Chrome to test out on the mean streets of *eh-hem* Surrey and Sussex… and we were only too happy to oblige. We’re super stoked on the end result and cant wait to start working on the next one! We hope you enjoy it!

Vocal DRS Bottom Bracket Promo

Vocal’s Ashley Douglas talks you through their new DRS Bottom Bracket which uses an adjustable clutch plate to provide friction and keep your cranks from moving when your feet come off. Whilst this is probally the last thing you want to purchase if you like your crankflips, I can see this as a really good investment if you do a lot of tailwhips and no-footed tricks.

The DRS Bottom Bracket is available as a full BB kit as well an upgrade kit of ryour Mid or Spnaish 19 or 22mm existing bottom bracket. Go hit the Vocal site for more info.
