24" folding bike?

Is there such a thing as a folding bike with 24" wheels? I'm new to biking and was just curious about this. I know there's a 16", 20" and 26".

Thanks
Terry

The Airnimal bikes are built around 24" wheels. There may be other bikes but 18" & 24" is not a common wheel sizes for folers. https://www.airnimal.com/

I’m reviving this old thread. I just bought this used Dahon Glide over ten years old. It’s a deluxe version of the Briza with IGH and Dynamo. The 24 inch tires really make a difference.

FYI: there are four different 24" sizes: ISO507mm, ISO520mm, ISO534mm and ISO540mm.

Bike companies aren't great at clairifying which 24" tire their bike uses in their spec sheets.

Internet tire vendors are generally pretty miserable at specifying which 24" tire they are selling.

Touring in a foreign country? Bon Chance.

This said, there's actually some worthwhile scope in this (these!) tire sizes and some pretty cool folders have used the size.

You're on a roll, ain't cha? I'd take this one over the BF, tbh. But that's just me 😉

​​​​​​Would love to see this pimped out as a fast & light tourer sans rear rack. It's got a front-block.

We've got these bad boys here. You could turn it into a monster-cross beast. 😂
