Dave Paterson over at WTP hit me up with some nice photographs and specs/details on the new WTP Utopia range. It is great to see them back in the flatland game, and they looking for feedback on their new product, read on and let us know what you think in the comments section…

“Wethepeople has strong flatland roots so we wanted to dive back into the flatland game after somewhat of a hiatus and create something unique. Now in it’s second year, the Utopia range was a side project we had to create a frame set that was tough enough for street riding, but has short and responsive geometry so you could have just as much fun in the parking lot too. We made a few changes for 2015, mainly the frame now comes in a longer 20” top tube size, as requested by a lot of our customers. The Utopia bar features the same angles but has been raised to 9” tall for this year. For 2015 we tweaked the fork to fit larger 2.2”+ tires if your looking to build a more street orientated setup. The end result is the most versatile flatland frame yet. The full 2015 Utopia range will be available from WeThePeople dealers worlwide from the end of Ocotber.

Whilst for most flatland riders our Utopia frame was big enough, we made a one off smaple for our team rider Dustyn Alt. Dustyn prefers a much more street orientated setup, so we took the current Utopia frame and gave it a bit of a growth spurt. The Trans Matte Blue frame pictured is Dustyn’s sample and it features a longer 20.3” top tube, a teller 8.25” stand over height and longer 13.2” chain stays. At the moment this frame is just a one off run for Dustyn, but if there is enough demand, we could produce it as an XL size on the second batch later on in 2015. It would be great to hear some feedback on Dustyn’s XL version and see who would ride one if we brought it out?”
