Embarrassingly I have no idea. Just let rick do the usual sta adapted to 22" wheels! Feels fine to me..
Standard uses 12.5"bb's on their 22"s.

Cheers boss. Let's keep this niche thread up the top for a bit! The 22 handling is spot on for skidding in autumn leaves with my 3 year old daughter..

Be curious as to how that rides. Head angle is going to be a bit steeper, but otherwise probably pretty nice.

Looks good might build a 22 cruiser! Or a 22 with a front brake and coaster?

The mounts are in the same spot. He said he deepened the dropout and modified the brakes (extended the slot where the pad mounts on the arms).

Just put a new sprocket on the 22 before work today.



Next will be building up a Profile/Nankai hub for the rear wheel.

I've been really thing about one of these lately. I've been riding my BMX less and less, riding bigger instead. I tried to go for a ride yesterday and the BMX just felt so cramped and tiny. I'm not ready to make the plunge though, I like to a lot of lip tricks and front brake stuff and I just feel like its going to be too much bike for that. I'm also 6'1" and 27 years old, the body doesn't bend like it used and 20" wheels just don't feel comfortable.

Anyone have any videos of someone riding one? I'd like to see how it looks in motion and what body position is like.

I did ride a 24" model C once, it felt pretty nice.
