We The People has updated the Utopia frame: "Our much loved flatland frame with it's short and quirky geometry, the utopia has become a big hit with flatlanders and recently street riders looking for a smaller, more responsive setup. To keep both sides happy, we took note of this, and beefed up the utopia with thicker tubing, a downtube gusset and wider chainstays allowing it to feel equally at home going down a handrail or spinning a new combo in the parking lot. Now available in a longer 20" version with proportionate geometry, the utopia might just be our most diverse frame yet."
