    Part of my process in figuring out my latest project bike was looking at the difference in outside circumference of a 650b wheel with mountain tires and a 700c with low profile cross tires. Guess...

    Well, it's not exactly high end but Fuji makes a youth road bike with a 49 cm effective TT and 650c wheels.

    Kona makes this bike with a 45.7 Eff TT and 24 inch wheels.

    Giant makes this bike.

    The overall radius difference between a 700c and 650c wheel is about 2 cm. Since the height of the frame off the ground is determined by the radius of the wheel, not the diameter, you'd only gain 2...

    My SO just showed this to me tonight. Phenomenal. She reminds me of Lynn Hill in her prime. Lynn Hill is 5'2" though, so she's got a bit of height on Kacy.

    This is actually a really good point and I think there are some skills that you can teach to help with visual awareness/attention. I hadn't thought of that and I will try to come up with some drills.

    If your bike has a more aggressive headtube angle or the front end is heavy for some reason, it will make it more difficult to balance. Tire width plays into it, wheelbase length all kinds of stuff....

    There are several really good reasons to learn to and practice riding without hands. Obviously it has to be done in a safe manner and I'd say on a heavily trafficked trail is not one of them.
