” I can see why the BMX ‘zines won’t feature twenty2s, its a real threat to the old 20″ dogma!”
The new Amero is a trails slayer, scaling up the wheels was just the start of a new era in BMX. We built eight prototype frame-sets to get to the perfect geometry for agility and high-speed control. If you take it to the 'park it spins, whips or flips like a 20" BMX, except you're going faster, more height with less effort.
People comment that after watching a 22" on the trails, riders are blasting every hit with less hesitation and looking less sketchy than a 20". On street, you will start looking at terrain with a new attitude, new lines, bigger step-sets are open to hit. And on the ride home, no-one heckles you about the kid-sized bike - you're more likely to hear "hey nice whip... but something's different about it..?"
The Amero comes as a 22"-wheel, tyre & frame package; 100% Sanko cromo double-butted 5lb frame and heat-treated fork, a 22" wheel-set with 6160 alloy, double-wall 36-spoke rims, sealed bearing hubs with 3pcs axles, cassette rear.
