I just purchased a 2015 Redline Asset 24, and it will be in the shop soon. I'm just wondering, are tricks that you would normally do on a 20 inch, lmited to a 20 inch? I know you can do 180's and 360's and things like that, but can you really shred with a 24 inch?

u can do everything just need a little more muscle, plenty of guys riding urban mtb with pegs and freecoasters in 26 inch so why not 24 as well? i use to ride a cruiser in 2013 i rode street with it.

It's harder. I rode a 24 street mtb for about a year (not some off the shelf thing. It was an ns capital custom build with all good bits). The difference between the two when I went back to 20" was unreal.

I watch the The Rise all the time. They are one of my favorite bmx channels, but there bikes are 24 inch mountain bikes, made for dirt jumping. Mine is a cruiser, just like a regular 24 inch bmx, but just in a 24 inch wheel size.

Hell yeah! That's a cool video for sure. And Jonny, I'm just wondering, do people get a lot of shit for riding 24 inch bikes? Because I know that mainly anyone who wants to do tricks and freestyle on a bike, goes for the 20 inch.

Things might be a bit harder to do but you aren't really limited aside from clearance on some ledges and rails. My buddy rides one and kills it, check the link. I rode it the other night and managed to get a crank arm grind on it so if a regular bmx feels too tight a 24" works for everything.

Hell yeah! That's awesome. And i'm pretty fit, so I don't think it will be much of a problem for me at all. I just didn't know if people who ride 24 inch bmx bikes, get shit like scooter riders do. Hahaha. But I guess those people haven't rode a 24 inch, or a scooter, because both are fun as hell, and that's what it's all about.

I have both 20" and 24". You can still do stuff on a 24", just takes more strength. If feels great to ride fast and cruise though. I use mine mainly for commuting. For actually doing tricks I prefer the 20" because it's easier to throw around.
