I have a 20" bike, kind of wondering if its possible to swap my 20"frame for a 22" frame, but keep my 20"wheels/fork and have it not feel ridiculously stupid. Like would it be too weird to have a 22" frame and everything else be 20" or?

I dont see why you couldn't but It'd probably feel and look reaaly weird

Yeah thats what i was thinking. I want to see if chuck would be willing to test this out for me. Seeing as he's the only person I know of with a 22" bike.

I have a 22 inch frame/fork, the Faction.

your brakes won't line up with the rim, if you use brakes.

the BB height will possibly be weird.

My question is, what are you trying to accomplish by doing this?

My Faction frame has the same geo as a 20 inch frame.
75
71
13.5
21.5 top tube

I was just interested in whether or not people do this/can do this.

the duece duece is a 22 inch TOP TUBE. it's not made for 22 inch wheels, which I think the OP was asking about?

you kids need to learn to read.

he's not talking about TOP TUBE length. He's talking about wheel size. 20 inch vs. 22 inch WHEELS.

He is actually asking if a 22 frame with 20 everything else would be good.

yea. 22 inch WHEEL frame with 20 inch parts.

kids are posting 22 inch top tube bikes,which is not what he's asking about.

tecnic1 - how'd that thing ride w/ 20's on it? Or did you just do it for shits n giggles cause you were snowed in?

I just pedaled it up and down the street, but realistically, the geometry is basicly a long TT 20.
