I am close to purchasing my first bent. After much research and finding a local dealer, I may go with the Bacchetta Strada, which has a 26" front wheel. The dealer didn't have one in stock at the time for a test ride, so I'll have to wait before making a final decision.
The dealer did have a Bachetta Giro which I test drove; however, it has a 20" front wheel. It took an extra try to get moving, and I found myself a bit wobbly but after a few minutes things went much better. I could tell a learning curve would be involved, but it didn't seem over the top by any means.
My question is this: is the high-riser (26") bents much more difficult to ride for the beginner? Any special considerations for a 26" vs. 20"?
