yeah i follow that page.

i saw something this morning that theres gonna be a brian foster signature fit 22 complete coming out next year. even though hes not riding one atm cos he still likes his 20, he said that he felt itd get him a few more years of riding having the option of a 22.

i dont see myself switching from my 20 for normal riding cos im too nibbly, it feels real stable when jumping boxes and stuff on it, makes ramps feel way less intimidating. i mostly use it for going on bike rides with my gf tho haha so i can do hops and stuff while riding around
this year i am going to have sex and it will be awesome

If a BF 22 comes out I'll have to jump on the bandwagon

Need to clear up some funds for wheels. I've got most everything else I need to build it.

Waiting til the United and Fit completes come out then I might go for one. Wish we were more like the mtb market and different wheel sizes and weird setups were more available.

Forte 22" is out, looks great. Going to try and have a go on one somewhere and seriously consider it.

A year later... Bought a KF22, it feels great, going to stock up on tyres in case the whole 22 thing grinds to a halt. Go and buy one!

Love/hate relationship with this thing. Ordered one of the first 3 frames, only to find out they welded the brake mounts in the wrong spot. Got a replacement frame a week short of 4 months later. Got everything together and had a severely misshapen rear tire. Got a replacement tire, can't slam the wheel in the dropout with a 2.1" tire without it hitting the chainstay brace or chainstays themselves. It does look and ride nice though. Most recent pic from last winter after I got it put together. Have since had my rims re laced to Madera hubs, changed the sprocket to an Odyssey C-512 27t, and swapped out the pedals for some Odyssey PC. It's been hanging in the garage since the end of April as I'm kinda burnt out on the whole thing.

I got an ATF a while ago and I love it. Most bike have the grace period where they feel weird and you have to get used to it, but this thing just felt perfect from the get go. 20" bikes feel unridable now.

Not sure if it counts but, I bought a model C and rode it for the first time yesterday. Probably never ride my 20" again.
