From my hill climbing, the shorter the wheelbase behind the seat, and the further back the rider weight (upright, seated), the more likely it is to unintentionally wheelie.

I would think some of the same principles would apply when trying to do it on the level.

The correct answer is a 60's Schwinn Stingray. Bikes in question are BSOs (bike-shaped objects) and probably won't hold up to doing tricks.

I think there is the equivalent of 24" wheel BMX bikes that one might look at.

Definitely go with the dark green and black Schwinn, those colors will help you pull sweet wheelies....

On second thought save your $$$ and get a proper bmx.
