As the infrastructure gradually decays around us, we'll all gradually increase our tire size to accommodate poorer roads. The trend is already happening with the growing popularity of larger tires.

Dan's stocks spoke lengths for 24" and 26" BMX cruiser wheels. If you're using deep carbon 700c rims, I'm guessing the spoke lengths ought to be in the same ballpark, so it's likely that they have...

Your SS chain has fewer links..there is less material to wear. Each link cycles around your drivetrain more frequently. Of course it will wear faster.

The difference in diameter is 4mm. If you run a 4mm larger tire in the front you'll have the exact same geometry as before.

To clarify, we are talking about racers....no stunts. Racers mostly train on streets by doing sprints, not stunts. Regardless, most of these kids ride around their neighborhoods on bikes.

I hit 47 once on a steep hill with 49/16. It sucked and was seriously not fun after a few seconds. I did not wuss out and hit the brake. Fortunately the hill was not very tall.
