How much of a difference is the 22" compared to a 20" Did it take long to get used to, and was your tricklist effected in anyway?
As to a difference, my wife still hasn't noticed the size difference, even when the bikes are all next to each other, lol.
It does feel a little bigger, but not nearly what I would have thought. Going from 21.25 to 22.125" TT length, at first felt roomy, but I had the layback and railed seat on it, so changing to the normal post took a little of that away.
It honestly just feels like my bike did back before I was fully grown, for lack of a better explanation. Not too big, and more like in the "Sweet spot". The rear is about 1/2" longer, then add the additional 1/2 or so for wheel circumference, and the balance point is slightly farther back, but it's not as huge an adjustment as it seems to be made out here on the interwebs, haha. I'm sure most would have little or no issues with the change, unless they're 5'4" or something and should stick with the 20".
As to the trick list, winter is my biggest enemy at the moment. I threw together a shitty little ramp last year to just play around on. The oldest and I dragged it out of the garage a few days ago on a warmer day, and was checking the landing area out, and just from a hop as I went around the ramp, my tires sank 3" and I had to fight going otb, haha. Now we're having some freezing rain and snow, so there's that. Yay.
Hope my rambling has answered you at least a little bit, haha.
