Swope worked with Cheap Goods BMX to put the custom 22″ together.
It was eye-catching in a “is it a MTB or BMX?” kinda way.
Well, since then Lurch has changed up his bike some (OK, a lot.)
Dealing with an injury, Lurch decided to take on a new project. According to Lurch,
So I been seeing more and more of these 22″ builds lately and wanted to try it out for myself and see what the hype is about….I absolutely love it!!! One of the best bikes I have ever built up.
Lurch sent over some pics and it looks dialed.
I checked with Lurch earlier this month and he’s still on the 22″, loving the new setup and enjoying the summer.
I can’t wait to see some riding pics!
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.
