coming from racing 24''s imho 20''s are sketchy for some one 6'-3''and 230lb like me and 24 is slow to throw around seems to me 22" would be the best of both worlds.
my porridge is to hot 20
my porridge is to cold 24
this porridge is just right 22
lol
although i don't know what the aba /nbl would consider a 22 not a 20 but not a cruiser

Add me to the list of people tat want one.  I was hoping for one to race with, but there is currently no class for them in the ABA.

I will be getting one for riding trails and street with my sons.  Hopefully 1indust puts out something good, they've got some great local companies they can lean on for stuff. ;)

I realize there isn't a class for them, but I wonder if the aba has any official ruling? IF you were to ride one can you ride in the 20" class, 24", both, or are they just outright banned?

I was told not allowed. :( Not going to stop me from racing it though. Unless someone in your class objects, you should be fine. Especially at local races.

Would love to try one being a taller chap. Pretty happy with my Deluxe but I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

I've raced a 24inch before, and it's super easy to move around and/or compress from a landing too much and buzz your jeans on your back tire. You can deal with it in racing, but for freestyle it seems like a 24 would be restricting. Maybe a 22 is a better choice for bigger/older guys without loosing all the maneuverability that you do going to a 24.

The bike sounds like a good idea, but until more companies start making 22" tires and rims the idea will go nowhere.

Its a bit of a catch 22 because companies will not start making more 22" rims and tires until the idea goes somewhere.

I really applaud these companies for having to guts to try and pull this off.

nice pun.

I don't really get people having a go at this, more options is always a good thing in my idea. Guess they would be pretty slick for trails

Tires is more the issue than rims, because Vernon's buddy got an order of a batch of rims from Taiwan--which apparently wasn't that hard to do.

Here's one of Vernon's rims he got built up.

Good luck with your business, I like the idea. I know some guys who wanted to start BMXing but gave up (and moved to MTB) because the bike was simply too small for them.
What selection of tires is available? It looks like dirtmonsters in the pics. I can understand that rims can be made no problem, it probably mainly means re-adjusting of bending radius of extrusion that the rim is made of. But for tires you need completely new mold, which apparently can go up to 10s of K usd.
