2019 Battleship frame from Wethepeople in Dan Kruk's colourway. Wethepeople designed the Battleship frame to be a stripped down weapon without any unnecessary features, so the frame will come fully brakeless to help keep the cost down, which will allowed them to put more focus into more vital parts like the dropouts and headtube which have been severely beefed up.
Wethepeople took battle-proven hydroformed tubing to create a larger contact/weld area to the headtube. Paired up with a taller 127mm headtube, this not only creates an incredibly strong and stiff front end, but also reduces the need for vast amounts of headset spacers for a much cleaner look.
The Battleship frame was a chance to really see just how responsive a BMX frame could be. The chainstays have been shortened up to 12.7", which gives you a much shorter wheelbase, and in return helping with spins and making the bike easier to throw around. Despite this super short back end, the frame still accommodates a 2.45"+ tyre and a 28t sprocket.
The dropouts on the Battleship are 6mm thick and CNC machined out of 4130 chromoly, and then heat treated for extra strength. To combat a lot of issues that street frames traditionally suffered from, they use a special dropout shape on the Battleship that is designed to give ample room for hubguards and line up perfectly with pegs, even when at the slammed length of 12.7". If that's too short, you can also run your wheel one half-link longer at 13", and not have to worry about your pegs or guard not having adequate contact with the dropouts.
