Simple to the Users:

You have probably figured it out by now, the previous post about the Eject v4 PC stem was just a renderning and nothing but a post in the news for fun. Never happened, never will. Got some very interesting comments on the different forums out there.

We will stick to the Alloy stems.

Here is a preview of the upcoming Eject v4 stem, which should hit the stores early summer.

simple stem

Eject v4 PC stem

After doing massive material research we came across this High Strength Plastic, with an incredibly high molecular mass. This allows us to make a very light, yet very strong stem without compromising on the durability. We have taken this stem through a lot of testing and abuse to see how it would hold up, and so far it’s proved to last very well.

Bruno Hoffmann

When your name looks like this you have a lot to live up to. With just a few years behind him as wethepeople’s youngest family member he is already on the right track and with the right attitude. But his age is not nearly as relevant as his riding….welcome to the future.

Date of birth?!

Where are you from?
I was born in Berlin but I only lived there for 2 weeks.
Now I life in Siegen, Germany. Loving it haha

Who do you ride for?
Redbull, Vans, Eastpak, People’s Store and wethepeople

Describe your current bike setup in three words.
Still pretty clean

Can you lace a wheel?

What got you into riding small kids bikes ?
Me and my neighbour built some jumps right behind our house but the real first contact with BMX was when my mom brought me a freedombmx issue one day. There was a Van Homan interview inside which I probably have read a billion times. I think the first video I saw was some old Soulbmx and head first which I got for christmas.

How many autographs did you sign?
I don’t know. But its been a few lately. It’s crazy

Do you have any interests besides riding?
One “interest” is school of course but besides that I pretty much only ride or hang out with friends at night. haha

BBQ or Veggieburger?!

Cigarettes or chewinggum?

What’s in your pockets?
Iphone, some coins, lighter, pens and homework from time to time.

What do you bring with you when you go out riding
It depends, when I go to my local park I don’t really bring anything besides something to drink sometimes.

Name 5 things you always bring on a roadtrip.
Ipod, socks, passport, clothing for sure I don’t even know.

Name your 5 favorites songs of all time
Slayer – Raining blood
Misfits – We are 138
Metallica – Whiplash
Johnny cash – One
Danzig – Mother
It could also be the whole Hell Awaits Slayer album.

Places you visited so far.
I´ve been to America twice and around Europe a lot. Never been to East Germany. I went to Israel last week, which is pretty much the craziest/most beautifulst place I been to.

Give me a random party story
Pretty much every party is good. Or we make the best out of it. I live close to the biggest brewery in Germany so “we have to drink”.

What would you change in BMX?
I don’t really know. I could say the hate on the message boards but until some point its funny I guess. Maybe the fixie trend.
Where do you see BMX in 5 years?
Completely different than now. But I don’t really know in which direction it will go.

What inspires you to do what you do on your bike?
Everything I guess. Videos and magazines for sure but more than that my local scene we have here. Its just really motivating to have a such good scene and super good friends here.

Any shout outs?
Thanks to everybody especially my parents for all the support also outside of BMX. Thanks to all my friends and people who help me out. Everyone at wtp, vans, redbull and eastpak. Thanks to my teachers for being so relaxed when I miss class.
