Well, looks like the 22inch wheeled bike is no longer just a bad idea, its now a reality!

I think the bike itself looks nice, but i think its a silly idea, i highly doubt we will be seeing any legit companies putting out 22in specific parts any time soon.

Maybe they're for giants? I know of some pretty BIG guys that love riding BMX but are cramped on even the "bigger" frames. Maybe 22" is a way of Giants holding onto some form of BMX?

That or a really shitty marketing scheme to try & make money......

EPIC FAIL!!! They put an 11.5" on that!?!? Its gunna feel like complete balls!

I like the absurd amount of control and dominance I have over my little bike. 22" just doesn't seem right.

I love riding my 24" cruisers and my 20" bikes so I'm pretty sure I would like one of these also.

I think its practical, but with Sunday just stepping into the cruiser market it will be harder for these guys.

well if you have a 20 inch frame with more than an inch of chainstay adjustment (or enough tire clearance anyway) you could run your current frame and keep the specs except bb height will jump an inch

looks like i wont sell my faithful wtp, with its long dropouts, when its time is up

the geo and complete build on the Zeitgeist is decent but not the greatest, but Faction have improved a ton with the new frame, the Amero.  and, we've been testing out some different frame designs for 22"s:


Austin TX local Vernon Sexton, riding his friend's custom built (Solid and S&M) Webbco 22" :



Vernon and I are about to build up another 22" wheel proto (fabricated by Matt and Stout Bikes in Houston TX)  --- 21.8 tt 12.4 bb 14" rear, 5.3 lbs, straight gauge chromoly:


here's the Webbco on the right:




....

and . . . from Faction's facebook:

Do we really need a 650b-type BMX option? I mean, how disadvantaged do people feel without an option between 20" and 24"?
