What’s also special about this German BMX company is its INNOVATIVE approach to everything they do.

Sure, they may still stick to more classic looks with some frames, but in general, they’re quite different compared with other brands.

Did you see their beautiful hydroformed tubing already? I’m in LOVE.

Also, if you want a taller frame, Battleship Magnum at 9.75” will be perfect for you.

Another thing is the extremely short, 12.5” chainstay that you can get (Network frame!).

Finally: All frames are covered by WeThePeople’s lifetime guarantee.

Yo!

This post covers:

Best WeThePeople BMX Frames

Note #1: Frames are listed in no particular order. (The 1st one is not necessarily better than the 9th one – all are DOPE!)

1. Doomsayer

doomsayer wtp frame
The Doomsayer frame from WeThePeople is Jordan Godwin’s signature frame which according to WTP is a “natural progression of the battleship frame combined with Jordan’s specific needs”.

The Doomsayer frame has a higher bottom bracket height and investment cast dropouts compared to the Battleship.

Jordan says it is exactly what he wanted and there is nothing he would change about it.

The seat stay tubing on the Doomsayer has also been strengthened to help frame TWISTING from Jordan’s hard spins.

In addition, this is a brakeless frame and also has built-in chain tensioners on the dropouts.

Doomsayer specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.5”, 20.75”, 21”
  • Head Tube: 76.25° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.95-13.5”
  • Standover: 9”
  • BB Height: 11.9”
  • Weight: 5.2lbs (20.5”)
  • Best for: (Extremely) Technical street & park riding
  • Price: $415.99 (may vary)

2. Pathfinder

pathfinder wtp frame
Here is Felix Prangenberg’s signature frame called the Pathfinder.

In 2020 the frame was given a complete revamp over previous iterations, including; a shorter chainstay, new graphics, and an offset thickness chainstay & bottom bracket shell.

This offset thickness means that the chainstay tubing and BB shell are thicker “in areas susceptible to grind damage.”

This difference in thickness is obvious in the chainstay tubing and is noticeable when looking at the BB.

Felix says that without this feature, he would easily GRIND THROUGH the frame.

The shorter chainstay is now 12.75” at the minimum versus 12.95” at maximum previously and this is a brakeless frame with external top/down tube gussets.

Note #2: The majority of WeThePeople frames are made in Taiwan.

Pathfinder specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.75” / 21” / 21.5”
  • Head Tube: 76° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.9-13.5”
  • Standover: 9.66”
  • BB Height: 11.7”
  • Weight: 5.2lbs (21”)
  • Best for: Technical street & park riding
  • Price: $394.99 (may vary)

3. Buck

buck wtp frame
The Buck Frame is Dillon LLoyd’s signature frame from WeThePeople. According to WTP was “destined to be something truly indestructible.”

The frame features a throwback top tube junction pierced to add strength and has a lifetime warranty.

The frame also has ovalized chainstays, a top and down tube gusset, as well as investment cast dropouts and a seat clamp.

Being the frame of choice for Dillon and designed for him means that this thing is built for THE ABUSE he surely puts it through.

If it can hold up to Dillon, it surely should be able to withstand what you’ll put it through!

Buck specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.5”, 20.75”, 21”, 21.25”
  • Head Tube: 75.5° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.9-13.25”
  • Standover: 9.15”
  • BB Height: 11.8”
  • Weight: 5.1lbs (21”)
  • Best for: Burly street & park riding
  • Price: $360.99 (may vary)

4. Network

network wtp frame
The Network frame from WeThePeople is Dan Kruk’s signature frame that WTP claims is “one of the MOST progressive BMX frames ever made.”

It sets itself apart from the norm in the modern street frame category with a steeper head tube angle at 75.75° and a standover height taller than normal at 9.15”.

This frame also features the investment cast chainstay yoke, which allows for a 12.5” chainstay with space to fit even the biggest tires.

The frame is brakeless and utilizes a hydroformed top and down tube made from seamless Japanese 4130 chromoly tubing.

Note #3: A frame I put through serious testing on the streets. Extremely strong and exceptionally responsive.

Great both for spins and nose tricks. But I found it a little too small at 5″11′, and even though I was riding 21.1″ TT.

Network specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.5”, 20.8”, 21.1”
  • Head Tube: 75.75° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.5” slammed
  • Standover: 9.15”
  • BB Height: 11.85”
  • Weight: 5.6lbs (20.5”)
  • Best for: Technical street & park riding
  • Price: $425.99 (may vary)

5. Battleship

battleship wtp frame
The WeThePeople Battleship frame is a progressive street-oriented frame for the modern-day BMX street rider.

According to WTP, the frame utilizes hydroformed tubing that “maximizes the welding area on the head tube junction for increased stiffness and durability.”

The Battleship also has a relatively short 12.7” chainstay which leads to the progressiveness and responsiveness of the current BMX street frames.

This one also has the option of brakes with removable hardware and a lifetime warranty.

The 127mm tall head tube is also present to ADD strength and give a clean look with fewer headset spacers at the same time.

Battleship specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.5”, 20.75” – 21”
  • Head Tube: 75.75° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.7” slammed
  • Standover: 9”
  • BB Height: 11.7”
  • Weight: 5.35lbs (21”)
  • Best for: All-around street & park riding
  • Price: $375.99 (may vary)

6. Paradox

paradox wtp frame
The Paradox frame takes their original Battleship frame and gives it all of their new frame technology making a frame that is the “Ultimate Street Frame.”

The frame uses a ton of investment cast technology with the invest cast yoke, seat stay bridge, dropouts, and seat clamp.

This investment cast yoke allows for the short 12.7 rear end to also be compatible with 2.4” tires and have BETTER sprocket clearance.

With all geometry being the same other than .25 degrees less in head tube angle, essentially, this frame is the same as the Battleship but with the new technology added in.

Paradox specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.75”, 21”, 21.25”
  • Head Tube: 75.5° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.7” slammed
  • Standover: 9”
  • BB Height: 11.7”
  • Weight: 5.8lbs (21.25”)
  • Best for: Heavy street riding
  • Price: $439.99 (may vary)

7. Battleship Magnum

battleship magnum wtp frame
WTPs Battleship Magnum frame is an offshoot of their iconic Battleship frame with a few minor changes.

The Magnum has the same strength features as the original, such as the hydroformed tubing and the 127mm head tube. The differences lie in the stand-over and an additional top tube length as an option.

The stand-over height on the Magnum is 9.75” over the 9” of the original Battleship and the frame offers a longer TT as its largest option.

This frame is made for people who may be taller or just want a LONGER/TALLER version of the Battleship frame.

Note #4: Another frame I put through a lot of testing over almost a year of riding it. I really dig the specs and the higher standover.

Battleship Magnum specs:

  • Top Tube Length: 20.75”, 21”, 21.25”
  • Head Tube: 75.5° / 127mm
  • Seat Tube Angle: 71°
  • ChainStay Length: 12.7” slammed

  • Price: $375.99 (may vary)

The frame uses their signature hydroformed tubing and boasts a lifetime warranty just like other frames but with modern flatland geometry.

The frame has a kinked top tube to fit the needs of flatland riding.

This is also a BRAKELESS frame, meaning there are no mounts or other brake hardware options.

The frame comes in two different top tube lengths of 19” and 20” even and weighs in at just 4.27 lbs at the 20” top tube length.

How To Make Your WTP Frame Last Longer

Here are my four key factors to ensure the longevity of your frame:

Routine Inspection & Cleaning

Frequently examine your frame for signs of cracks, dents, or rust, especially around welded areas.

Clean off any dirt, grime, or corrosive substances to prevent damage. If you notice any signs of wear, address them promptly.

Ride Responsibly

While BMX is about pushing limits, constantly subjecting your frame to high-impact stunts, especially those beyond your skill level, can hasten wear.

As you advance, practice techniques that minimize unnecessary stress on the frame. In other words, try to learn how to land smoothly.

Proper Storage

Store your BMX in a dry, cool place away from direct exposure to the elements.

Moisture can lead to rust, and prolonged exposure to sunlight can weaken some materials. A dedicated stand or wall mount can prevent accidental knocks or falls.

But I store it upside down, so the bike sits on the grips and the seat.

See more on the topic by checking my how to store a BMX bike guide.

Invest In Quality

Start with a high-quality frame, which is exactly what you’re doing when getting a WTP frame.

Frames crafted from superior materials with better construction techniques inherently possess a longer lifespan.

Ensure your choice aligns with your primary riding style, be it street, park, or dirt.

Maintaining the entirety of your BMX bike, not just the frame, and replacing worn parts when needed will ensure you get the most life out of your equipment.

Thus, take a peek at my complete BMX bike maintenance guide and keep your bike fresh and running smoothly.
