Size comparison between large and small wheels

Here is a picture comparing the size of a mini velo with a standard bike. You can see that the latter is substantially larger. This supports the fact that if space is at a premium for you, bike size is important. It also goes to show that availability of smaller bikes in north america is limited.

BTW the owners of these bikes are my height 5,5 , 1,65 m.

So your claim is small wheeled bikes are smaller? That's a pretty contentious issue!

Its true, the lack of space in Japanese home is the reason why small wheels bike have a lot of success in Japan, also small wheels race bikes.
