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…

Cult rider will make you a believer

We were pretty excited when we heard that Cult Bikes was testing a new race frame.

Well, that excitement is building because it appears that Cult Bikes is adding some heat to their racing program with CultCrew racer, Vick Behm.

Fast, stylish and ready to shred, Vick Behm looks like he’s ready to inject some fun into the (sometimes) too serious race scene.

Standard OS20 race build spotted

We’ve been watching Standard Bykes foray into OS20 bikes with some interest now ever since the debut of the OS20 125r.

The translucent bronze version caught our eye most recently.

But up until this point we haven’t seen one all built up (just frames & forks).

That all changed today.

Standard showcased this build on their social media feeds.

Classic gray with black components and 20mm drops on the frame and fork.

Surprisingly — for a race rig at least — this build got outfitted with 990-style brakes. According to Standard, it’s a no-charge option.

I kinda dig it.

Looking forward to seeing more of these builds!
