No. 22 and This Team Saves Lives

We're excited to be supporting This Team Saves Lives (TTSL) as a platinum sponsor this year. TTSL is an all-women's adventure, cyclocross and gravel racing team with riders on the East and West coasts of the USA. 

In the words of TTSL:


We are a group of women who live and breathe bikes. We're driven by weekend adventures, and breaking the boundaries of conventional cycling by taking things off road. We are adventure seekers, artists, racers, and explorers.

This Team Saves Lives is part of a cause headed up by This Bar Saves Lives to provide life saving therapeutic food aid to children suffering from severe acute malnutrition. For very bar you purchase from This Bar, they send a packet of life-saving food to a child in need.

Watch for TTSL riders aboard Drifters and Broken Arrows at events this year.

No. 22 Titanium Welding

The No. 22 welding team is led by Frank Cenchitz, who personally has over 20 years of welding titanium bike frames. Sam Dries, our young prodigy (and hotshot CX racer) has added nearly three years of training under Frank to his previous welding experience. The knowledge and experience of our weld team is a key element of what makes every No. 22 special. Click through to read more about our welding process.

Why Ride Titanium?

No. 22 Raw Titanium Tubing

Many different materials can be used in the manufacturing of a bicycle, each with their own set of benefits and challenges. Before launching No. 22 Bicycles, we put significant time and energy into considering the type of performance, comfort, durability and aesthetics we wanted to offer to our customers.

With the frame qualities established, we researched which material would best deliver the ride experience we were working towards. In the end we agreed that titanium was the best solution.

In this post we examine some of the attributes of titanium, and how its properties deliver the ride experience every No. 22 frame offers. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but may help point you in the right direction when choosing your next frame.

Starting the season strong: 2017 NAHBS and Toronto show wrap-ups

by Mike Smith March 19, 2017 2 Comments

Trade shows are a logistical challenge at the best of times, and this year the Toronto International Bicycle Show and the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) were separated by four days and nearly 2,000 miles. The whole No. 22 team was scrambling: from late nights anodizing tube samples, last-minute catalogue production, nerve-wracking customs clearances and coordination with our suppliers to make sure not just the bikes, but all of their parts, were there on time. Throw in a blizzard at home and the result has been one of our more ambitious show schedules to date.

So, was it worth it? Absolutely.
