    i wanted to try a 22". rims are going to be a pain to find (only faction makes i think) fork is limited, tires, and frame. if 22" was popular and easy to find, i would try it out.

    Be patient... this thing is money. I think it's going to be a hit.

    It looks sweet! Might be just the ticket for a guy like me who never really is comfy on a 20" but thinks a 24 is too similar to his 26" djer

    if kids too small for 20" wheels get to ride 18" wheel bikes . . . . then dammit a 6'1"
    200 lb man should be allowed to ride 22"s......

    i have one and it's not weird at all. it's the most natural bike ever. feels instantly more comfortable than any 20" i've ever ridden. and that's 20+ years and 20+ bmx bikes worth.

    bigger wheels roll over bumps easier.... but 22"s are still small enough that you have all the same maneuverability and rotation-ability. plus it just makes for a bike that is proportionally bigger. 20" wheel bikes have just gotten stretched out to accomodate full-grown men. they have not adapted in other ways. this is that adaptation.
