No. 22’s new coupling system is clean looking, lightweight and low-profile. The titanium tubes are cut at two points, and the machined surface locks together in all axes resulting in a seamless transition from frame tube to coupler. The company says the system is completely “creak-free” and will ride just like any of its standard models.
This new design, combined with their “Brake Break”, which allows tools free, bleed-free disconnecting and reconnecting of the hydraulic brake line, makes for a very attractive travel bike.
