Any size wheel lx will be much better than a cx. You'll enjoy the extra speed

the quality of the lx is unbeatable for the price. i have a 26", and it's been holding up amazingly. i would definitely reccommend it. what type of riding are you looking to do?

it should hold up pretty well, are you going to do cross country, or do you want to do more technical stuff? you should be able to put at least a 2.3" tire on there. the next step would be something like this:

i currently have a 26", but generally most riders prefer a 24" for agressive riding, or a 29" for cross country.
a smaller wheel is more maneuverable, but a larger wheel rolls over bumps easier and is faster.

Mostly cross-country,But some tough sections (rocks and roots).
The problem now with my 20" cx is whenever I hit a rock or sudden elavation change it throws me off the front.
So the 26" lx should be better........Right?


P.S
Is the lx well made, sturdy.

I tried to put a 2.10 on my LX26 and the tire scraped the frame a little.
But that's not such a big deal. The smaller tires are lighter and easier to ride. I am very happy with it.
