United KF22 22″ Complete Bike

United-BMX-KF22-Angle

Can You Dig It posted an interesting interview with Kye Forte in which he gives some insight into the reasons for his recent conversion to 22″ wheels and unveils United Bike Co’s new KF22 complete bike which is due for release next month.  It’s good to finally see a 22 inch complete for those out there who want to try larger wheels but don’t want the hassle of building another custom from scratch or periodically switching parts over to a different frame/wheelset.  United haven’t scrimped on this bike at all, with a number of aftermarket parts as standard, you won’t need to be replacing stuff for a good while, no cheapy chromo pinch-bolt cranks here; you get plenty for your money.
