A Sunday Wave-C with 22 inch wheels?

8 05 2014

Bmx Museum member 77rider recently posted a build that is garnering a lot of attention.

It’s a Sunday Wave-C built up with 22″ S&M Pitchforks, 22″ Revenge wheels and some special one-off custom brakes (with extended arms).

How did this mad scientist tinkering affect the ride?

Switching out the forks and wheels served to steepen the head tube and lower the bottom bracket.

According to the forum thread, 77rider really likes how it handles:

I am a 20″ guy at heart. I have a 24″ Wave C and love it,but it just feels a little odd for me. So that got me thinking, if I like a 20 and the 24; a 22″ would be the shit.

Boy, was I right. This is just what I was looking for. I rode it for a couple minutes tonight before ball practice and fell in love.

This is definitely an interesting hybrid of the 24/22″ worlds.

Wonder if we’ll start to see more experimentation of this nature, now that people start seeing what’s possible with forum threads and posts like this.

Holmes turns 22

21 08 2012

S&M just announced that the new Holmes Frame, 22″ Pitchfork and Revenge wheels are now available.

From the looks of the things a large group of people are ready to jump on these and roll twenty-two style.

Choosing a new bike just got a whole lot more interesting.
