The wheel size of the bicycles we ride now (the size of the bicycles ridden by adults) is basically 26 inches, but do you know? The initial wheel size is not 26 inches, but 27 inches (700c, 1 inch is 25.4mm).
Of course, the current bicycle wheel sizes vary widely, including 12 inches, 14 inches, 16 inches, 18 inches, 20 inches, 24 inches, 26 inches, 27.5 inches, and 29 inches. Are you dizzy? As the most mainstream 26-inch wheels, why do people love it? In fact, it is nothing more than riding comfort and passability. According to a large amount of research data, 26 inches is a size that basically balances comfort and passability, and is more in line with the height of most people in our country. Of course, the 27.5 inch wheels that are relatively emerging are also more appropriate. However, what bicycle manufacturers want to say is that 26-inch wheels are more suitable for those with a height between 165-175.
Mountain bikes are now mainly equipped with 26-inch wheels, while the 27-inch 700C is more used for road bikes and track bikes. Folding bicycles are 12-inch, 14-inch, 16-inch and 18-inch, while the princess bicycle is 24 inches. In fact, it mainly depends on the purpose of the bicycle, such as the 24-inch princess bicycle and the 26-inch bicycle. Inch mountain bikes, princess bikes are mostly used by women. They are mostly used for urban commuting. The 24-inch wheel set is convenient for women with smaller stature. Therefore, there is no bicycle wheel set with the best size, only suitable for their own. Is the best.
