i think 24&26T are the number of Threads on the axle. Which would define the length. I would just go woth the 26T...you can always have some extra, but you cant use it if there isnt enough.

doesnt the "T" stand for the number of teeth on the sproket?

24 and 26 are threads per inch.

I have an old freecoaster hub that uses a 24 thread axle but most of the hubs i used ran a 26 thread axle.
