    Trials Bikes: 20" or 26"???

    Well, i own a 20 inch wheel trials bike but i always see pros and other good bikers like me have 26" wheels, hardly any ever have 20" ones, i was wondering are 26 ones somewhat better and more 'trickable' than 20" wheels?

    Please someone tell me why ppl use 26 inch more than 20, and also what are their main advantages over eachother etc. thanks fellow riders!

    ps: are trials bikes any good in skatreparks since they have tichty freewheels on like gear 1 or 2?

    I don't do trials, so I can't comment with any credibility. Wish I could, I just don't have the patience to practice that much. You guys definitely have my respect!

    I think it's just a matter of comfort and what riders are used to.

    26" wheels allows for more versatility. You can do some normal riding, on 20" trials...you can do trials...
