Are you looking for the latest Dan Kruk bike check?
This is one of the most unique bike setups. Period.
Do it Dan style if you’re interested in trying something different.
His bike is for going super technical but easily handles the biggest gaps.
If you need proof, watch the best Dan Kruk BMX videos, where he demonstrates it all in great detail.
Dan is a WeThePeople pro, so you know the major part of his bike consists of WTP products. But he also rides for Merritt.
All his signature parts are one-of-a-kind and original.

Stem: WTP Gooseneck top load stem
Headset: WTP Compact headset
Fork: WTP Battleship, 24mm BMX forks

After all, it has one of the shortest rears in the market, coming at 12.5″ slammed.
On top of that, it has a steep front end at 75.75 degrees, so you know front wheel tricks (even rotations & barspins) will be easier.
I really like how some BMX brands dare to do things their way, constantly progressing and innovating.
WeThePeople is one such brand, and Dan Kruk fits it more than perfectly.

Old Dan Kruk Bike Checks
1. What I Ride (2019)
Here is Kruk’s video bike check from late 2019. This is a What I Ride video from Our BMX where Dan goes over his entire bike with the reasoning behind some of his geometry choices.
The geometry explanation on his signature Network frame from WeThePeople is really well-spoken and informative.
Dan talks about the 25.4mm clamping area on his Stallis signature WeThePeople bars combined with his signature Gooseneck WTP stem.
There’s no riding in here, but if you’re curious about Dan’s bike in 2019, check it out!
2. Dan talks about his BMX setup
In this video from Our BMX, Dan talks about his signature Network frame from WTP.
To start out, Dan mentions a few features of his signature Gooseneck stem and then gets right into frame details, starting with the head tube angle.
Dan does an excellent job of being specific and talking in-depth about the different features of his frame.
He is very knowledgeable about the different things that make up his frame and hearing a rider speak so well about a signature part is awesome.
The whole video is made with Dan revealing his frame that Grant C was building up, so they went for a session to get some riding clips in when he finished it.
3. Bike check (2015)
Here’s a throwback bike check with Dan Kruk from late 2015, which you can find on the OSS YouTube page.
It is interesting to hear Dan talk about parts before his signature parts and hear how expert he is about everything on his bike.
Dan knows what he likes and exactly how to set up his bike to feel how he wants it to.
His explanation behind things as simple as why he doesn’t cut his bars shows this really well and then there is a riding clip following to illustrate his reason.
There are a few more riding clips as Dan talks about his bike for an all-around solid bike check.
4. Dan’s Network bike overview
Here is a super quick video bike build from WeThePeople with Dan Kruk building his Network frame.
This one is just 42 seconds long, but the b-roll does a great job of showing which parts he uses with only music and no dialogue.
This one came out in early 2020 and serves as a good represDan’sion of Dan’s bike at the time.
5. What I Ride (2018)
In 2018, Dan Kruk’s signature WeThePeople frame had yet to come out and he was on a Battleship frame.
This What I Ride video from the late Ride BMX features Dan going over all of the parts on this frame in just over a minute and a half.
Even in this short of a time, he does a great job giving insight on the parts that make up his bike and there are even quite a few riding clips in here at the end.
6. Dan Kruk bike check (2016)
Dan is no stranger to bike checks throughout the years.
This one is a bit longer at almost six minutes and has some riding mixed throughout.
Dan is riding the WeThePeople Battleship frame here with his sick signature 80’s themed colorway.
He’s also riding his signature party paint colorway on his Madera sprocket.
Dan’s understanding of the parts on his bike and why he runs them is always so cool to hear. He knows very well why he rides what he does.
7. Bike check (2016)
Here is a video bike check from BMX Union with Dan Kruk filmed at 2016 Interbike.
Dan built this bike up at Interbike, which was the perfect opportunity to do a bike check on the fresh build.
An interesting tidbit here is that Dan is riding sample Daily Grind grips.
There’s no riding in here, but Dan is always well-spoken about his bike.
He gives a great explanation behind his choices with bike parts, which always makes for a bit of a time capsule in each bike check.
