One of us (or both) is getting a bit confused here.
The numbers 24 and 26 probably refer to tire/wheel size (24 inch, 26 inch). A 24" size mountain bike frame would be HUGE and is in fact a rare beast if not impossible to find.
Here is my suggestion to you-
At the top of the opening page of this forum read this and educate yourself a bit- Sticky: Please Read Before asking Question: MTB FAQ.
Also, when you go to the bike shop, they will (if they are any good) try to help fit you on the right sized bike.
