Among all the news coming out of Interbike, some really big news dropped the week of the show from a company that wasn’t even at Interbike.
We’re talking a full cro-mo (frame, fork & bars) complete with all sealed components for $449 (US).
Here’s some other highlights:
- Top tube: 22 1/8″
- Chain stay: 14″
- Cranks: 170mm
- Bars: 8.8″
Those tapered fork legs are pretty nice too.
Here’s Matt Bischoff walking through the features.
Tire choice is a big thing for 22″ completes (given it’s “emerging market” status) and the Vega has got you covered with an Innova low-profile knobby tire. Innova tires have had a bit of a mixed reputation in the 22″ world but this tire looks like a much improved tire over previous Innova 22′ iterations.
All in all, an impressive package from the good folks at DK.
I had heard a while back that they were considering a 22″ and it’s great to see it finally make it into the lineup.
Looking forward to seeing it when it hits shops in November.
