Instead of arguing with you, I'll just correct you. It's not.

Don't do it! 26 is good.

?? the size of your bike does not matter unless you sit on your seat. look at aaron ross, he rides bmx and he is a big guy

my brother is fully grown and is only 4 feet tall, and he tried rockin some 26" but just couldn't do anything. he says his 24"s are lighter and make it easier for him to do whips and 180's and whatnot, i wasn't sure but trusted him cuz he's family. i guess it's just a matter of preference.

I'm 6'2" and building a 24". Coming from BMX, though. 24" only feels good with a 24" frame.

my frame is a small size tho it's 12.5 in propper measurements

I switched to 24" with my latest bike and for urban/DJ I would never go back to 26". I have to pick up a 24" frame next season, but for now the 125 frame is great with the 24s.

He means having the chain stay length/ Head tube angle being 24" specific not the overall frame size.
