DK busts out the 22″ Vega for 2017

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.

That news (if you missed it on the Big and Tall BMX Facebook page) is that DK’s releasing a 22″ complete called the Vega for 2017!

We’re talking a full cro-mo (frame, fork & bars) complete with all sealed components for $449 (US).

Dang.

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.
