Frame Size - Why are sizes important?
I haven't been able to find any good information on the site regarding why I seem to be only finding seemingly smaller frame sizes on good bikes as opposed to walmart bikes.
That's not to say that the information isn't out there.. I just haven't been able to find it.
So here's the thing.. I am *redacted* about *redacted* lbs according to what I've read I should be on a 18" frame, yet all my wally world suck bikes have been 26".
I can understand for DH purposes smaller frame allows easier maneuvering and tighter turning and all that.. I think?
What's the dealio? I've sat on smaller frame bikes before and they just seem to look ridiculous.. Like a kid on a monkey bike! ..Well, not that bad.. But the scale seems off..
Additionally, as you all probably know, and I have come to accept.. There are no real bikes in a 26" frame size. So anyway, if someone can fill in the blanks as to why that would be great.
Also.. I'm not looking to do a whole lot of hardcore trail action since my current bike sees more road use then about anything.. Would it hurt to get a 20 - 21" frame bike? or is that a big no no. ??
