One the most anticipated bikes in BMX, the CRS is back for 2021 with even more bang for your buck. Now featuring a sealed front hub, this all-terrain slayer rolls smoother than ever. Packed full of aftermarket parts from ECLAT including the Bios Pivotal seat and Pure seat clamp, the CRS looks and rides like a bike twice the price tag.
The geometry has been tailored to allow for greater progression for the younger generation. The super-short 12.75” chainstays, 165mm cranks and shorter 26mm fork gives the CRS a snappy and agile ride perfect for learning and advancing on. A bike truly built with vision, the CRS is unlike anything else.

This is a smaller toptube size. 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.
This is a short chainstay.
A long chain stay will make the bike feel controlled.
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.
Steep head tube angles make the bike “snappy” meaning more responsive to fast turns.
A less steep head tube gives you more control.
This is a medium standover.
A medium standover will balance controlled and responsive feelings. Giving you the perfect amount of seat to pinch when trying barspins.
Riding a tall rise, will give you more leverage on the bike. Making it easier to pull back and lift the front wheel up.
This is a medium width.
Narrow bars make barspins easier.
Wide bars give you more control and stability when steering.
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.
This is a normal upsweep!
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.
Now the 2021 wethepeople CRS is a pretty good bike for $419. It does include some aftermarket parts and a little bit of chromoly that might justify this price. However, in my opinion, it's just a little bit overpriced. For this price, I think you should be able to find something with at least a trimoly frame and maybe one or two double wall rims.
Like I mentioned above the CRS is OK quality especially because of those aftermarket parts. The extra salt parts in a few eclat parts make it stand out from the rest but with that being said a bike this price really should have Some more chromoly if you want it to last as you progressed to a mid-level rider.
All in all the 2021 wethepeople CRS is a really good looking bike. It could use some quality improvements especially to justify the price. But it is built for a brand-new rider who needs a bike with good geometry that will help them progress faster at BMX. If you're new or just learning some basic tricks the CRS would be a good fit for you. You just might have to replace parts over time as you progress and as they start to break.
