    I am going to put in an order for a 22" custom from standard. Think I might use the same geo as the one in earlier posts.(21tt,74.5 ht,14in rear,12.5 bb) I am only 5'6, anything bigger is silly. I see the biggest frustration is wheel/tire choice. I am having trouble tracking down a pair of Velocity Taipans as well.... I've found some decent looking tires, http://www.bikemania.biz/ProductDeta...nnova_2505_BMX On Innova's website they have a few other 22" tires to check out. Supposedly kenda and Schwalbe also have 22 tires according to http://www.factionbikeco.com/contact.htm (top right side)

    ... 1/2" is really thick! Might be a bit overkill for steel, but it certainly won't break on you.

    heh, yeah i don't know man, we'll see !!

    just as a little experiment, I got my S&M 22" fork, and while waiting for my InDust 22" frame decided to see what a WTP Avenger 24" would look like with a 22" fork and 22" wheels. the Avenger has 1st gen Sunday Model C geo (21.25"tt, 13.75"bb). well, it dropped the bb to what looks like a pretty normal/good height and the head angle didn't steepen as much I thought it would. looks like a highly rideable setup. except you're not getting the benefit of a back end designed around a 22" wheel and the brakes won't line up.

    Here's a mid school Holmes--disregard the Dirtbike stickers--that I had the brake bridge and chainstay bracket moved in order to run as a 22". The forks are custom Pitchforks and the wheels are the Velocity Taipans. With 22" specific forks on a 20" frame, the bottom Bracket height measures a little under 13" with the 22" wheels in place. The chainstay length with the wheel in its current position is 15", a little longer than desired, but not too bad. I never could manual anyway, so that's not a big deal. All-in-all it's a fun bike to ride and it satisfies the 22" craving before my custom Standard frame is completed.

    The Faction guys have said they should be ready to sell mid june. Anyone got any news of the S & M 22. I can't find any refrences to it apart from rumours on forums. Is it for real?

    The prototype is sitting in my basement.... I'd say it's real. When S&M will be putting it into production, I have no clue...

    Yeah. It's the production part being real that interests me.

    It seems as though the Amero is going to have forks for 10 (3/8ths) axel slot. So won't fit with the Zeitgeist wheels.
    I was looking at some of those prototype frames. Can I use the Zeitgeist fork with a frame that is machined for intergrated headset?, rather than grinding anything down or changing hubs.
    I know I could buy a whole new set up but just a new geo frame would suit me for now.

    Yes. You just use an integrated headset and it has a different lower bearing race.

    There are some forks out there that you can only use with a new school (integrated) frame because they integrated the bearing race onto the fork...
