A few months back, Brian Foster (BF) let the world know (via Instagram) that he had been dabbling with 22″ wheels.
According to BF, a 22″ S&M ATF had shown up at his door (courtesy of his sponsor, Chris Moeller). Moeller wanted him to try it out.
What did the Blue Falcon (BF) think?
According to BF:
I definitely see the appeal. It rides better at speed and is more stable when landing flat. This stability comes at a cost as it is not as nimble as a 20″. I think a 22″ makes sense for trails and large transitions.
But that wasn’t all.
In addition to this pic of BF shredding said 22…
BF let the news drop that:
This fall, a 22″ @fitbikeco complete will be released and should raise the stoke for the generation of shredders that want to stay connected with riding.
That statement sent the world’s BMX keyboard jockeys a typing.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait until fall to get a sneak peek. Below is a first look at the BF22 (My apologies for the awkward cropping).
Not a lot of details at this point but with its long-ish looking top tube, top load stem and big-ish bars…it looks like it’s probably going be a good choice for the lanky set.
No word yet on an official release date or price point.
