2021 Wethepeople Revolver Review


A pro-level bmx bike, designed to ride dirt, park or street. The revolver is very expensive and very high quality. Perfect for a rider who needs a bike build to last. This bike comes in matte skipper green and weighs 26.6 lbs.

Overview

Taking our “do-it-all” aftermarket Revolver frame and draping it in some of the finest high-end components, we’ve managed to create an incredibly sophisticated and balanced bike for the kind of rider that appreciates the finer things in life. The longer 21″ top tube and perfect all-round geometry make the Revolver perfectly comfortable on any terrain from the deep end of a bowl, to the mainline of your local trails or even the back streets of a big city.

The harder 28-9 gearing gives this rig plenty of juice when the time for pedaling fast comes into play, and the and full assortment of ECLAT Dura chromoly pegs and hub guards allow you to gun it down any rail insight.

Wrap it up with a lifetime guaranteed ECLAT Storm fork and a mesmerizing Skipper Green paint finish, the need to build a custom bike really doesn’t exist anymore when you could be riding on a bike like this fresh out of the box.

INCLUDES LIFETIME GUARANTEE ON THE FRAME & FORK

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length:  21″ – Learn what size is right for you here.

Check the size guide to see if its right for you..

Getting a top tube that is taller than suggested will make the bike feel more controlled and less responsive

Getting a top tube size that is smaller than normal will make the bike feel a lot more snappy and responsive.

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.5″ – Learn About Chain Stays Here

This is a long chainstay.

A short chain stay makes the bike feel twitchy. Spins will be easy, but airing and jumping might feel hard to control.

A long chain stay will make the bike feel really controlled. Spins will feel sluggish, but manuals and air tricks will feel nice because it will be more stable.

C: Head Tube Angle: 74.75° – Learn About Head Tube Angles Here

Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns. 

A less steep head tube gives you more control.

D: Seat Tube Angle: 71°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.5″

F: Stand over height: 9.1″

This is a tall standover. 

A tall standover makes your seat higher up and will allow you to pinch it easier when learning barspins.

G: Rise: 9.25″

Riding a tall rise, will give you more leverage on the bike. Making it easier to pull back and lift the front wheel up.

H: Width: 29.7″

This is a wide width. 

Narrow bars make barspins easier.

Wide bars give you more control and stability when steering.

I: Backsweep: 11º

What does backsweep do?

As far as I know, there is a sweet spot for backsweep. Too much will make the bike feel weird, and too little will make the bike unstable. It seems like the sweet spot is around 11º to 12º. If you need something a little more aggressive and straight feeling, go for 10º, but only do this if 11º is uncomfortable.

J: Upsweep: 2.5º

This is a normal upsweep!

What does upsweep do?

There is a lot of discussion about 1º upsweep vs. 4º upsweep. Some people are running experiments and testing if the greater upsweep will make drops feel better. It seems like a lot of street riders run 4º to 5º upsweep. This helps for wrist pain and lessens the impact of big drops.

Price

For just a little over $1000, you’re getting a bike that is practically fully custom. I’ll talk about the quality a little bit later, but when you consider what this bike comes with this is a really good price. Not many people can afford to spend over $500 on a bike, but if you do you’re saving a lot of money in the long run because these parts are built to last.

Quality

The 2021 Wethepeople revolver is built from an aftermarket frame with a lifetime warranty. Wethepeople added on a ton of pro-level eclat parts, making it stand out against the other pro-level bikes this year. Here are some of the things that make it 10/10 Quality:

  • Frame: WETHEPEOPLE “REVOLVER” frame, 4130 full sanko, invest cast wishbone & 7.5mm dropouts
  • Cranks: WETHEPEOPLE “LOGIC” 22mm tubular 3pc crank crmo, 175mm, 48 spline
  • Rear Hub:  ÉCLAT “PULSE” cassette, sb hub, 9t, 14mm axle, 36h, SDS driver
  • Pegs: ÉCLAT “DURA” pegs, 4140 heat-treated crmo pegs, 4.6″ long, x2

Buy if you are learning:

  • 360
  • bar spins
  • Grinding handrails
  • high-level street
  • high airs
  • 540
  • grind combos
  • tail whips

Don’t buy if you are learning:

  • Good for any trick

Conclusion

The 2021 Wethepeople Revolver is designed for a rider who’s riding at a really high-level. This person likes to ride park, dirt, and street and doesn’t really have any preferences. The geometry on this bike is very balanced and the aftermarket parts are strong and well rounded. The Revolver has some of the best quality that I have seen on of any bike so far this year. It is a little bit expensive but with all these aftermarket parts it’s totally worth it.
