Over the past few years, we’ve seen a few 22″ BMX bikes popping up with Faction BMX and S&M Bikes both putting a lot of work into that in-between niche market between 20″ and 24″. Today, we spotted something interesting for you 22″ fans out there. The Blue Falcon, Brian Foster, will have a signature 22″ complete from Fit Bike Co. in their 2017 complete bike range! We don’t have much detail on this yet, but it’s definitely happening. Below are a few words about the bike from Brian and how he’s feeling about the 22″ size. We’re going to chase up Chris Moeller and see if we can dig up a little more info on this bike.
“This winter a 22″ @sandmbmx ATF showed up at my door. @moeller_chris wanted me to check it out. After a few sessions with it here and there, here are my thoughts. I definitely see the appeal. It rides better at speed and is more stable when landing flat. This stability comes at a cost as it is not as nimble as a 20″. I think a 22″ makes sense for trails and large transitions. This fall, a 22″ @fitbikeco complete will be released and should raise the stoke for the generation of shredders that want to stay connected with riding. I will spend most of my time on my normal bike but this larger option will buy me a few more years of roasting in the future. Here’s a screen grab from today on the big bike.” – Brian Foster
