Last week’s Interbike show provided the perfect opportunity to check out the much anticipated FIT BF22.
S&M/FIT had teased it would be there in the days leading up to the show and I was anxious to check it out.
However, it wasn’t going to be Interbike when I would first get to check it out.
Trying to make the most of my trip, I had tacked on a couple days to visit Austin.
Of course, no BMXer’s trip to Austin is complete without a trip to Empire BMX.
While I was casually perusing the goods there I asked about the new BF22 and when it would be in the store.
Turns out it was already in the store!
The sales guy suggested I take it down from the display and take a closer look.
Not needing more of an invitation then that I promptly pulled it down.
And took it for a spin (in the store).
Does it ever ride nice!
Roomy and comfortable (I’m 6′ 3″) this bike felt like a super-sized 20.
(Check out the complete specs here.)
When I finally got to Interbike, I made a beeline to the S&M booth and found it proudly displayed.
I snapped a few more pics…just to be thorough (and of course, to check it out again).
Peep those Speedball tires.
I think these completes are gonna go like hot cakes.
