OS20 tires mounted on 22″ rims

Ever since Chris Moeller dropped word (in July of last year) that a 22″X1.95 tire from S&M was in the works, I’ve been waiting in eager anticipation for it to drop.

Well, it’s been more than a year and we’re still waiting.

No doubt when these hit the market they’ll be a hot item for riders wanting a slimmer tire for racing, lower rotational weight or smaller size (if only to slip under the wheel height race rules).

But in the meantime…you could follow the lead of Rickard at ORP BMX.

He’s experimenting with mounting OS20 tires onto 22″Revenge rims.

According to ORP, “ it’s hard, real hard” to mount OS20 tires on the Revenge rims.

But as you can see from the pictures, definitely do-able.

Real Sexy New Parts are in Daily. Os20x1.85 on new Speedline Forks.

Wonder how many racers are going to try out this mod…

  1. It’s doable, but good luck getting it off when you have a flat or blow the sidewall.
