The theory is that the smaller the diameter, the stronger the wheel. Plus, with the current trend to go to super fat tires(up to 3.5"), you need the extra room to fit such a fat tire into a standard frame.
Proponents of 24" wheels, claim quicker acceleration, and I buy that. Yet, I don't understand the longer wheelbase claim. Isn't a wheelbase measured from center to center? The frame must change in order to effectively change the wheelbase. Or am I way off here?
