There are so many option in BMX when it comes to choosing which size bike you want. They got 20″ frames with 21-22 inch top tubes and for the racers that got some bikes with super long rear ends on them. We’ll Faction BMX took it a step further with their 22″ Amero frame….that’s right it bigger than a 20″ but smaller than a 24″ Cruiser. Speaking of that what should that style bike be called? It’s not really a Cruiser since it’s smaller than a 24″…I dunno..anyways I digress lol. The bike looks dope and from the video below it looks like it rides dope too. I wonder if they’ll start making 22″ racing bikes..If I remember the BMX racing rules the “22 inch bikes would race Cruiser class I believe.
