    Why do you say they suck? Do you know what a quality bike is? Do you look at Huffy and call that 'quality'? What is it you look for in a bike that makes it good? Do you look at a bike and see 3-piece cranks and say "Oh, that's a good bike!"?

    We The People have a pretty solid reputation for putting together some very good bikes. They don't muck around with 'entry level' stuff as much as other companies do. WTP's bottom line bikes are more like Haro's midline bikes. Then they get better from there. So, you pay for it appropriately.

    They are far from expensive - and they are FAR from sucking, as you so eloquently put it.

    Yea, wtp is a really good company.. I used to have wtp forks and I loved them. And they are not expensive. I dont know what kind of bike you ride, but those are normal high bmx prices.

    wtp is nowhere near expensive, they make their frames in taiwan to keep costs down.

    ya i think its dumb that bike companies (or any companies) notice that alot of people are buyin or are gonna buy their product so they think hey, if these sell alot, maybe we can make them alot more expensive, just like nike (even though i wear em), some of their shoes arnt any better then some everlasts or some new balances, but since they are name, they skyrocket the prices

    i don't see much inflation in the price of bmx parts outside of advancments in technology, frames were 250-300$ 10 years ago and they were simply just 4130 tubes bent and welded. now you have campanies using different tubing, different BB shells, integrated headsets, any many other things. 340$ is about the most you should have to spend for a super quality frame, but even the 300$ market is pretty much just the same.

    volume is great. Most of your high quality bike companies are all great.. standard, wtp, kink, volume, S&M, FBM, Primo, Profile, afew others I forgot to mention. They are all great companies with pretty similar prices and except for minor thinhs they may do differently here and there, they are all close in quality, give or take a product or a few.

    You are a few years late.

    Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.

    They come from Germany. What have you ever seen cheaply priced from there? Very nice bikes overall, but should be a little lower IMO especially with the house branded Salt components. The Eclat stuff seems premium and should be worth it. They almost sell out their line every year so I'm sure they feel no reason to cut prices any. The 2010 line up is the nicest looking I have seen to date from any company.
