the advantage of 24" over 20" is that the 24" is more forgiving. a small bump hit by a small wheel is effected more than a large wheel. think about it this way...a pebble can stop a skateboard dead, but a bike wheel will roll right over that pebble.

24" wheels seem to be the best wheel for the cruiser class in bmx racing. a 26" wheel is a bit too flexy, and the rotating mass is increased enough to slow your acceleration. plus, the 26" wheel bikes are not nearly as nimble in the air usually. one main advantage 20" have over 24" is their acceleration and manuverability.
