2020 We The People Revolver Review

This bike looks sick. I love the dark grey color and the tall looking frame. The Revolver has everything you need on a bike. With full chromoly, aftermarket forks and stem. It comes in a lightweight 25.85 lbs and 28/9 gearing.

Highlights

  • Pro-level Bike
  • Full Chromoly
  • Double Wall Rims
  • STRONG BIKE

Frame Geometry

A: Top Tube Length: 21" - Learn what size is right for you here.

21" is one of the longer sizes.

This is good for taller riders that are between 5'8" to 6'3"

B: Chain Stay Length: 13.5” mid

This is a long chainstay. A longer chainstay givers you a lot of control with manuals and bunny hops. However, it is less responsive compared to smaller frames.

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 normal-sized standover. I'd say it is mid-range. Tall stand overs make the bike more controllable with bars and t-bogs. Shorter stand overs make whips and spins fast.

Price

Not many complete BMX bikes cost over $1000. Also, not many people can afford a bike that costs more than $1000. I'm not going to say that the Revolver is not worth $1169 because it totally is... However, it is a ton of money, and you should only buy it if you plan to ride BMX for a very long time.

Quality

For $1169 I'd hope to get a top-quality bike. That's exactly what this is. The WTP Revolver is equivalent to building a completely custom bike.

Sanko 4130 Chromoly is the strongest type or Chromoly. This bike has a fully Sanko frame, bars and forks.

Conclusion 🤩

I really love every aspect of the bike. The grey is so clean looking. The aftermarket parts are so strong. And the specs are great for having control. Personally, this bike would be perfect for me with the specs and the quality of parts. I normally break a lot of parts and I think this bike would last me well.

Frequently Asked Questions
