As I under it, 26" wheels with a nice fat DH tire are best for Downhill
and flatland riding, right? Is it also true that for uphill riding a 24"
with a fat tire is better than a 26" with a fat tire because it is smaller
and is easier to push up a hill. Still correct? So if I am planning to use
one MUni for both downhill, flatland, and uphill riding it seems that a
24" with a 3" Gazzaloddi or intense would be best? If im wrong please
Thanks, Max A. Dingemans

26" is a small enough gear for most hills to be easy enough. The bigger
wheel also gives a smoother ride and handles bumps/tree roots better. But
the main thing I’d point out (having stayed on a 20" for a few years when
most muniers moved up to 26") is that if you’re planning to ride in a
group, it’s best to have the same wheel size as everyone else. Otherwise
you’ll be working hard to stay at the back of the group.
