The Buck frame is an "indestructable" frame from Wethepeople. It is Dillion Lloyd's signature frame, and they wanted to make something for real technical riding. The buck frame has the Wethepeople lifetime guarantee, as short chainstay, tall standover, and 2 color options.
This review is about the 2020 Wethepeople Buck frame.
|Top and Down Tube Gussets|
|Threaded for cable guides|
As soon as we sat down with Dillon Lloyd to discuss a signature line of parts, we knew it was destined to be something truly indestructible and a real Wethepeople classic. The buck line was based around Dillon’s blend of progressive technical riding and all out savagery with taller 9.25" standover and a shorter 13.2" chainstay.

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 long chainstay.
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.
This is a steep headtube angle.
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/tall standover.
A tall standover makes your seat higher up and will allow you to pinch it easier when learning barspins.
While a Small Standover will make it harder to bar but easier to whip
The Wethepeople Buck frame costs $327.99. This is one of the lowest-priced frames out right now. It does not use WTP's hydroformed tubing but uses gussets instead. It is pretty basic, but still a good frame.
It's kind of crazy to think that you can get a complete bike for less than this frame. However, this frame is for high-level riding and will outlast a complete bike by YEARS. Here are a few things that make it more expensive than a complete bike.
These are a few reasons that this frame cost's so much:
The Wethepeople Buck Frame weighs 5.27 lbs on average. This is the weight of the 21" TT frame. The Smaller options will weigh a little less.
The Buck frame is very light, and this is due to the basic design, and general tubing. There are not extra thick points like there is on the pathfinder.
The Buck frame is a nice frame with basic tech geometry. They say the frame is "indestructible" but I really do not see anything that really stands out in a quality aspect. Yes it's a good frame, yes it's a good price, yes it's strong. But I wouldn't say 'indestructible'.
The Taller seat tube will make bars pretty easy to learn, and overall the responsive chainstay will balance spins. Meaning they won't be really hard like they would be on a 13.4" but they will not be as easy as they would be on a 12.7". This is a good choice for riders who like to ride street hefty street.
This frame will be able to replace any frame on any bike that I review on this website.
