The Stolen Spade 22 turned our heads last year when it made its debut in the 22″ market.
Now for 2019, Stolen has souped up the Spade 22 with some more shine!
That’s right, Stolen went with a chrome (is colorway the right word here?) and tanwall tire look.
In a word, Wow.
This is a sweet looking ride.
In terms of geo, Stolen stuck with what worked last year…with the exception of making some tweaks to the chainstays to allow for better tire clearance. Always a welcome move.
Check out all the deets here.
These will be hitting shops in May…and probably selling just as quick.
Get on it.
BMX Union posted an article earlier this week on the rise of the 22″ BMX bike.
It covered most of the backstory of this niche of BMX, including some of the more recent developments we’ve covered as of late on this site, including the new 22″ We The People (WTP) tires and the new 22″ Deluxe frame sets.
The article also served to prompt a couple of major name companies to weigh in with announcements of their own in regard to some of their pending 22″ offerings.
We The People announced they will be introducing a mid-range complete 22″ bike (!), along with an aftermarket frame, forks, rims, tires and a complete wheel set. Salt (the WTP sub-brand) will also be offering an affordable pricepoint 22″ wheelset.
If you follow the Big and Tall BMX insta page, you are already partially in the know about the next announcement.
Stolen is already shipping 22″ wheelsets and rims out.
What’s new, however, is the news that Stolen Bikes (in collaboration with Fiction) will be offering the following 22″ items in June:
- Stolen “Spade Pro” 22-inch frame
- Stolen Spade complete bike
- Fiction Troop Tire in 22 x 2.30 size
We definitely won’t be hurting for choice on the 22″ front this year.
Great news all around.
