    Something a bit different (BMX content)

    Faction Bikes 22" Zeitgeist (22" wheels... not top tube length)

    So Keith and the boys at Faction Bikes (http://www.factionbikeco.com) hooked me up with one of their Zeitgeist completes to test out. I swapped out the bars, stem, pedals, and seat. I frikken love this thing. It has big trails written all over it... especially for the taller guys or guys who think a 20 is just a bit too small. I've ridden it a couple of times and this thing feels money.

    Cranks - Faction
    Pedals - Colony PC
    Stem - Shadow Conspiracy Attack
    Bars - Proper TTL 8" x 28"
    Seat Post - Kink Pivotal
    Seat - Macneil
    Brake Cable - Kink Linear

    I've seen a bunch of those up on Craigslist, it's a shame they don't make a race frame.
    Proud to race for Mojo Wheels

    Nice. I've often thought of picking up a 24" cruiser, and heading out to the track for nostalgic purposes. I can't see myself ever cramming onto a 20" BMX again.

    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    22" wheels eh? I'm guessing for now you're limited to their rims.

    Yep. They have a new set of 36H rims laced to profile hubs coming out here pretty soon that should drop another pound or so off the bike.

    Thats cool they're shipping out with profile hubs. You notice much of an improvement over a 20"

    Yeah. Don't get me wrong, I love 20's. But this bridges the gap between 20's and 26's and still keeping it bmx. It is so stable at speed.... kinda knocks out the twitch you get on a 20 at high speed.
