Question

You say that for each model you have an ideal ride that you strive for. Can you describe what those are for each model?

If I have a preferred shop who already has my fit, can they contact 22 even though they are not in your dealer network?
Thanks for your questions!

In regards to the dealer query, we don't offer dealer margins to non-dealers as we don't want to step on the feet of the shops that have invested in the brand. Please send me an email to bryce <<at>> 22bicycles.com to discuss how we can get your sorted.

A quick top-of-head geo summary below. Feel free to reach-out if you have any specific questions.

Overview

All of our bikes have a performance oriented focus. That is realized in the geometry and tube selection.

Road

Great Divide / Great Divide Disc:

- Our flagship model we call a '9/10ths' race bike
- Aggressive enough for spirited club rides, comfortable enough for long days in the saddle
- A lower bottom bracket height and a little more trail upfront for predictable handling and descending

Aurora:

- Similar approach to the Great Divide with a slightly tighter wheelbase/rear end
- Wears our 'premium' features of a tapered/integrated head tube and carbon ISP with our cast Ti topper resulting in about a half-pound weight savings over the Great Divide

Reactor:

- Our race oriented geometry
- Higher in the bottom bracket for tight cornering, a little less trail for a more lively front-end
- Wears our 'premium' features of a tapered/integrated head tube and carbon ISP with our cast Ti topper resulting in about a half-pound weight savings over the Great Divide

Gravel

Drifter:

- Our most popular model, a gravel bike that has more of a road geo heritage than a touring bike allowing for spirited riding while retaining all-day/week/month comfort.
- 700c/650b swappable for maximum versatility

Drifter X:

- Designed as a gravel race bike
- A tighter rear-end than the standard Drifter and a little less stack for a more aggressive rider positioning
- Wears our 'premium' features of a tapered/integrated head tube and ISP with our cast Ti topper resulting in about a half-pound weight savings over the Drifter

CX

Broken Arrow:

- Our CX race bike
- A tight geo with a high bottom bracket to clear ground obstacles, slacker in the front end for stability through nasty course conditions
- Horizontally ovalized top tube and for shouldering

Track

Little Wing:

- Our track offering with a fairly conventional pursuit geo, with an eye to being equally suited to urban fixed gear riding

MTB

Old King:

- A XC race-ready hardtail
- Relatively tight chainstays and quick yet stable front-end handling for tight single cornered single track
-Comfortable enough for endurance / 24h events

Hope this helps!
