More 22″ stuff from Stolen & WTP on the way

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

Yowza!

We definitely won’t be hurting for choice on the 22″ front this year.

Great news all around.

WTP jumps on the 22″ bandwagon

When We The People (WTP) dropped a teaser the other day saying that their new Overbite tire would be “…coming soon in some sizes that might just surprise you”…they weren’t kidding!

If you haven’t heard, well…maybe you should sit down for this…WTP is releasing their new tire in a 22″ size!

From what I can tell, the tire is low-profile, 2.3″ wide and 100 PSI.

For a company that has made a name for themselves with their high-quality completes…I can’t help but imagine that a 22″ complete can’t be far behind this news.

And if that’s the case…the 22″ complete market just got a little more crowded, and a lot more competitive.

Which is a big win for you, if you’re shopping for a 22″ complete.
