What problem does this solve? I suppose it might be easier to set up, but you also sacrifice a lot. You can't fine tune tension at all or adjust each side individually.

youd need to go custom to get front brakes on a 22 though and itd start to get expensive
I don't think there is a single part on my current BMX that isn't custom. I work in a machine shop and used to intern at solid, so putting mounts on a set of forks is trivial.

I'm really torn. My current BMX just feels so cramped and awful. I rode a model C and it felt really comfortable, but sluggish. I'm not ready to jump on the 22 bandwagon yet, but its tempting. If anyone in norcal has one I would love to take it for a spin.

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.

I plan on waiting a bit to see how things pan out with it, but I really want to try one on my trials bike.

Yea, either larger, or just posting a transcript would be cool. I'm loving the Seattle bike though, it looks like he pulled it out of a tar pit.

Lots of them by the looks of things.

I'd love to see a documentary on him. As said as it is to hear where he has ended up, it would be very interesting to hear about from his perspective. I also wonder if he is one of those people who knows his life is a wreck, or if he is just perfectly content living that way. Maybe knowing that so many people still look up to him for his riding would pursued him to get back on a bike and turn his life around, or maybe thats just wishful thinking.

Me and my brother have some footage of him riding street from last summer. I'll need to convince him to capture it.
What more convincing than "steven hamilton footage" does he need?

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.

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?

Is that the Dan Searls thing? Those jumps are ridiculous, I bet moto x guys would have second thoughts about them.

It seems like a decent idea to me, although I am not ready to make the leap and buy one, I would have to give a try first.

I feel that 26 is definitely too large for street and park and maneuverability suffers quite a lot. 24 is still a bit large, and I could really see 22 being an option for the taller riders out there.

If I were to build up a dedicated "trails" bike I would probably get a 22.
