2020 We The People Battleship Review


One of the few complete bikes that comes with a complete after-market package of parts. The WTP Battleship is a really solid bike, for a pretty price tag. This bike weighs about 27lbs, and has full chromoly everywhere. This strong chromoly makes it higher quality than the Hi-tensile steel option. The Battleship has a list of ECLAT parts and a freecoaster!

  • Full Chromoly

  • 27.8 lbs
  • Lifetime guarantee on FRAME and FORKS

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length:  20.75” – Learn what size is right for you here.

For riders 5’6 to 5’11”.

B: Chain Stay Length: 13″ (12.7″-13.2″)

A 13″ Chain stay gives you a wider balance point. Meaning you can pull back higher without looping out. This helps with hops and manuals.

C: Head Tube Angle: 75.5° – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

A steep headtube gives you a more responsive ride, while a mellow headtube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.7”

F: Stand Over Height: 9”

A tall standover gives you more frame to hold on to making bars and t-bogs easier. While a short standover makes whips easier.

2020 We The People Battleship Price

This is a lot off money to spend on a bike. If this is your first or second bike I wouldn’t recommend it. This type of bike is best for the serious rider who is completely committed to bmx.

2020 We The People Battleship Quality

The 2020 Battleship is probably the best bike on the complete market right now. Eclat parts are serious, and the pro riders currently run a good portion of the parts on this bike.

Highlights

GOOD PARTS

Every part on this bike is solid. Wethepeople didn’t hold back when building this bike.

Lowlights

Different colors have different side drives

So the raw bike is a RHD and the Coral Red is a LHD. This is strange to me because if you want to get a rhd or a lhd, you do not get a color choice.

Buy if you are learning:

  • 360
  • all grinds
  • x-up rides
  • half-cab/full cab
  • Barspin
  • Tailwhips
  • 540

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • Good to go for any trick!

Conclusion 🤩

Like I Said, this is an amazing bike and it is for serious riders. Don’t buy this if it’s your first bike. The lifetime guarantee makes the bike really worth the money.
