Thanks guys. If I didn't have a thing for the twin tope tubes, it would of ben a toss up between an Atlas or Wave.
TTwo Four rides solid. I do notice the steeper head tube angle for a cruiser when turning at slow speed.

I have wondered about this, the steeper head tube.  I like em steep so I might like the Subrosa.  My current 20 is a Broadcaster with the 75.5 Head tube so it intrigues me.  Others have said they don't notice it, but I think they were basing that on just pedaling around the block, not riding at a skate park.

You're exactly right. You'll like the steeper angle, responsive like a 20 at slower speeds. Perfect for me when I'm doing tricks at walking speeds. But when you're just cruising at normal speeds, it feels like any other 24. My new cult 20" has 75.4 angle, and I'm loving it, now I wish all my street bikes were steeper.

But the geometry is kinda lazy and the description on WTPs website refers to it as something for riding to the party storestar so that pretty much put it off my list.  Great parts  for the dollar though.

Yeah, that's a peeve of mine also--when BMX companies present their big bikes as just "corner store/bar bikes." 
In the MTB-DJ world (that I got involved in around 2006), companies are focused on high performance with big wheels.  It's weird to me when BMX companies offer some big street/park/trails bikes, but no one on their team actually rides them and does video parts on them.

Which brings me to my next point:  my impression is that for the Atlas, WTP copied the geometry of the Liquid Feedback.  And the Liquid Feedback was designed and built for riders by riders for serious trails riding.  The Liquid's 14.25" cs was way ahead of what other bmx companies were doing with 24"s; the medium-high bb was specifically chosen; the front end was given extra room; the 74 head angle is intended for stability at speed.  I find it reminiscent of some of the OG bmx trails bikes. Companies like Deluxe also went with 74 for their trails frame.   http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/f61/li … re-265639/

So, basically, I understand where you're coming from as far as quick handling street/park bikes. But the geo of the WTP is trails trails trails. Not bar cruiser!  (And I would argue it's great for street too, with the ultra-short back end).
; )

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

cmc, I agree with 90% of what you say, the Atlas does indeed say trail, trail, trail.  I never said the geo was bar hopper (that's the retro Masters territory), I just said WTP themselves described it that way.  But according to the specs I see, the chain stays on the Atlas are 14.6, not 14.25.  14.6 is same as Subrosa and Sunday.  And that's fine, but that lazy head tube still comes into play for street.  Now, I don't ride true street, I ride skate parks, but I do still prefer the more aggressive head tube angles.  Put the Atlas at 74.5 and I probably would be riding one today.  75 and it would have been a no brainer.  It seems like a great bike, just not exactly what I wanted.

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

Oh and the "medium-high" bottom bracket you refer to is an inch lower than Sunday, half lower than Subrosa, quarter inch lower than S&M.  Not really sure how that classifies as medium, let alone high?  Maybe compared to race bikes?

Very :cool: ride.  I do like the before but the new version is even better.  Just a little color but not over the top.

Dubnali, that thing looks better every time I see it :P:P:P:P:P  Really tempting to basically copy it.  Got the same wheel set now (I think, are those the Odyssey Hazards that Lenny has) but need to decide if they go on my black one or my son's vapor blue one.

Yeah they are the completes that Lenny sells. They are a nice wheel set, my only complaint is the red isn't a deep red, but they still look great and have that Odyssey quality.

Thanks for the kind words on my build. Work hard on these builds and love the outcome of my hard work. :D

Yeah the color on those wheels is nice but I don't think it will really match any other parts.  Close enough, but not really a perfect match.  But they are the only non black 24" wheels out there that I have seen and the price is really nice.  Even if I wanted to have wheels built there aren't many color choices for 24" rims.  Which is why my Wave C will probably end up looking pretty simuliar to yours.  If I could get a blue wheel set, or gold, or something like that I could do a different color combo.

I had the same issue, the Sunday and Odyssey anodized red is completely different. I did find out though that the Primo red is a near identical match to the Odyssey. The Mutiny red is close but not quite.

Yeah, maybe that's not the right way to say it, but, yes, compared to race bikes--or, really, all 24"s that were out at that time.  (Because there were quite a few "freestyle" 24's before the Model C, that also had zero-ish-rise bb, like Giant/Mosh, FIT CR24, Mirraco Icon Twenty40, 2009 WTP Avenue, DK General Lee 24, Haro Backtrail/125, etc. etc.)  :cool:

Like I said man, no bash on the Atlas at all, I love the look, love the parts spec and have wanted to buy something from WTP for a while now.  But they chose a geometry that just doesn't appeal to me, so I went in another direction for my first 24".

Re: Let's see your New School Street 24 inch!

Finally reunited with my beloved DB.....Bike had the indignity of living in a box while I waited over 6 months for a fork and to replace all the parts I stole off it to build my Subrosa.   Returned it to it's ideal form...a stripped down trail bike.  After spending 6 months on the Subrosa, then taking this out for a rip last night, I can honestly say that this is my fave bike of all time.  Thanks to Stoner71, 77Rider, Shad@Goods BMX, BMX Bro, for helping me getting it going again.
