You may recall an earlier post where we alerted you to Mongoose rider, Josh Hult, getting some 22″ wheels laced up in anticipation of putting a 22″ build.
Well, Josh has shared a picture of his new Lairdframe-built 22″ Mongoose prototype (with those wheels)…and boy, does it look good!

Finally got my 22” bike built!! Huge thanks to @mongoosebikes for making this bad boy a reality and, thanks to @5050bmx and @albesbmx for helping dial me in with parts. Now I’ll look like a normal person on a bmx bike and not a bear on a tricycle! Who out there would be stoked to ride a bigger bike?
That trans blue is so nice!
So, how does it handle?
Judging from this tuck no-hander on his first ride…I’m going to venture it’s not too shabby.
Is it too early to start planning a production run of these Mongoose?
I think not.
