I am going to bust out a micrometer tomorrow to figure out the front and rear hub/flange dimensions to see if I can lace up my profile elite's to the rims using the same spokes.  If there is interest I can post the measurements.


I am curious if you can make this happen.  Mathematically, it shouldn't be possible to use the same spoke length for a wheel with a bigger ERD using the same cross pattern as on your 20".  

Let us know if you get this done.

Pretty sure he's talking about using the spokes from the 22" wheels. Just swapping the hub with the Profile hub.

The 22" test bike has a 25/9 on it and it feels similar to a 27/9 on a 20".  Another one was built with a 27/9 and that gear felt great too. The 22" wheels also have a 9T driver.

25/9 was way too hard on that bike. I'd rather see a ten tooth driver. But, I'd also just rather get rims and build them up myself.

I will be reusing the spokes.  I went to the trails after work today so I haven't gotten the measurements yet.

Yes by my calculations this should be a good size that will work front and back with mini's.

My holmes kit will be delivered tomorrow.  I have all my parts laid out and ready to build.  Should be riding trails on it by 5pm.  I'll post some pics.

Went together in under an hour and rode for two hours tonight.  Here are my initial thoughts.

You need a crown race for the pitchfork.. it isn't the race fork it has the x brace and threaded topcap but it doesn't have the intergrated race.

One of the tires had a kink in the steel bead and actually came off the rim.  I saved it in time before it totally shredded the bead.  I know I put it on correctly.

The bike rode really good and was easier to jump and pump.  Very stable.  The tires hooked up awesome!  The dirt is all hard packed clay but it was a little damp enough where you need some tread.

I am running a profile mullvile with 8" regular slams.  Absolutely perfect for a 5'11" guy.

I really like it enough to sell off my 20".  Look for a cs steadfast with pitchfork and grand slams on the buy sell she is a keeper!

Oh I didn't even try.  Front end does feel shorter that a 21.25" I will post back in a few about that.

I rode all winter and spring on one of the solid natives they both have the 69 degree st.  The holmes feels like the native just bigger.

xup clearance with size 11 is fine.  Even with my foot perfectly flat and ball of foot on the axel of the pedal it doesn't hit.  Granted only by 5mm but most of the time your foot isn't flat but angled when xing up so you will have even more clearance.

My buddy's wife has some action pics and video of myself and another rider taking different lines and returning to cross paths almost hitting each other.  Missed each other by about a foot and at speed.  Bike was more maneuverable than a cruiser definetly closer to my steadfast.  I'll post them when I can get them.  But I am nothing special just a regular trail rider.

One more crappy pic for the road!

I think the bike itself looks nice, but i think its a silly idea, i highly doubt we will be seeing any legit companies putting out 22in specific parts any time soon.


hehehhehehe.  the holmes looks rad as fuck man

Stopped at another spot to ride over lunch today.  Meh a little better pics (I will take proper ones this weekend).

Definetly a bike for jumping.  Gonna ride some concrete bowls this weekend and then post a bike check w/full review once I lace in my elite hubs and switch to 30x12 this weekend.
