Default Re: 20 Inch Rear wheel on a 26 inch bike?

I like a 24" rear with a fat tire like a 1.75 to 2.0 and a 26 up front with a fatter tire like a 2.35 or 2.5 for good handling... back in my bmx days I always ran a 1.75" rear and a 2.125" front for best handling since I wanted the bike to kick out the rear tire before the front, there was still plenty enough traction but the bike would corner a lot quicker and better with just the slightest bit more grip up front and I was always in better control if the rear would lose grip before the front in a really tight turn on the dirt... this might work a little different tho on pavement
