2021 Wethepeople Justice Review

Overview

Based on the same Bikes that WETHEPEOPLE PRO Felix Prangenberg rode last season, the Justice features revised geometry and a never before seen parts overhaul from WETHEPEOPLE. Our new Activate tire, Paragon plastic guard sprocket, and Perfect grips make this new-school urban machine more stacked than ever before. Paired up with a shorter 22mm offset fork and a full assortment of plastic hub guards, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re riding a full custom build…

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 20.75″ – 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: 12.75" – Learn About Chain Stays Here

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.

C: Head Tube Angle: 76° – 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: 71.5°

E: Bottom Bracket Height: 11.75″

F: Stand over height: 9″

This is a tall standover.

A tall standover gives you more seat to pinch when doing barspins and t-bogs.

G: Rise: 9"

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: 29.25"

This is a medium 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

This bike costs $520. Which is a pretty good price considering all of the aftermarket parts that are included. I do think that a bike this price should at least have full chromoly and double-wall rims. But all in all, it's a good price for everything that you get.

Quality

Overall, the 2021 Wethepeople Justice is really good quality. This is because of all the aftermarket parts and especially that sprocket with a bashguard. The Justice comes with four hub guards which save you a lot of money in the long run and the aftermarket parts add extra quality to the bike. I do wish that the frame was full chromoly because trimoly just doesn't last mid-level riders.

Buy if you are learning:

  • bunny hops
  • 180
  • pull up bar spins
  • small jumps
  • small dirt riding
  • fakie tricks
  • Grind tricks

Don't buy if you are learning:

  • Big drops
  • big spins
  • back flips
  • big 360
  • tailwhip

Conclusion

The 2021 Justice is going to last a lot better than most beginner bikes. With that being said, this bike is designed for beginner level riders who have plans to progress to the mid-level. This bike will not withstand most mid-level tricks or high-level tricks but it will get you to that point.

A really cool thing about it is that you'll be able to easily upgrade and swap out the parts. So you can do this as your parts start to break just upgrade them with better ones.
