. . . 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.


For tires, I think it's pretty much just the ones that FACTION are doing.  Although their website currently says "out of stock" I know they have new batches coming.  http://web58.justhost.com/~faction1/store/home.php?cat=3


If you join their Facebook, you can keep up with things like that..

When I bought my Zeitgeist, I ordered extra tires.....

How fat of a tire can fit in the rear tri? I'm interested in putting together sort of a Pugsley/BMX hybrid for winter riding, and this seems like it fits the bill, as long as I can fit a big tire. Speaking of which, who even makes a 22 inch tire?

Nice, I wouldn't mind owning a 22" bike...even though I'm only 5'8" hahah. I wanted a Sunday 24" but it feels too big for some reason

Same here Alice.  I only had a Model C for about a week and then went back to riding my son's Funday Triple Shot bike.

was cool to see S&M listing the 22" fork in their custom options:


LEGS  True Temper butted CrMo
STEERER  1 PC CNC-Machined CrMo
DROPOUTS  Laser Cut 3/8" or 14mm
AXLE TO CROWN  (18") 289.5mm
 (20") 315mm
(22") 340.5mm (24") 366mm
 (26") 435mm
OFFSET  33mm
WEIGHT  2.1 lbs (20")

also cool to see an all white Faction Amero (their new higher-end frame) compared with a newer model Macneil Deuce Deuce.

I wouldnt ride one myself as im rather short, but i know my mate whos a lanky bastard has been going on about wanting one for ages.

But not only is there the problem of getting rims and tyres but also what about spokes?
You could use plain guage spokes and just cut and re-thread but thats gonna take forever.  Or is there someone that already does spokes in that length?
