21" is a tall top tube.

This is a longer chain stay. A long chain stay gives your more control over hops, manuals, and ice picks.

$784 is pretty expensive for a bmx bike. Most people who buy a complete bike are pretty new into bmx. The 2020 Trust is designed for riders who are pretty familiar with bmx and who want a bike that will hold up to aggressive street riding.
What you get for $700 is actually a really good deal.
Wethepeople did put a lot of quality into this bike. It has all of my favorite qualities like double wall rims and full chromoly.
Full Chromoly Frame bars and forks. Chromoly is the strongest type of steel available for bmx bikes. Read more about it here
Salt Plus Elite 3pc cranks. Super strong chromoly cranks with the better 48 spline spindle.
Eclat Trippin Double Wall Rims. Running single wall rims is stupid. Please make sure your bike has double wall rims.
Bikes come with: bad parts, ok parts, good parts and great parts. The 2020 Trust has good parts borderline great parts. Things like 48 spline cranks are really rare to find on a complete bike.
I feel like most people have a $500 budget when buying bmx bikes. Sadly this wtp bike goes over that cap. Don't get me wrong, it's worth the money. Just a little expensive.
Wethepeople made a great bike. Remember that this is the cassette version. If you are a freecoaster rider, get the 2020 wethepeople trust FC. This version is strong and ready to slay street. It comes with pegs and hubgaurds. What more do you need?
This bike is great for riders between 5'5" and 6'2"
Depending on how aggressive you ride and how much you crash, I'd say it should last around 2 years.
Very good for progressive street riding.
