I ve just picked up an old revell bikes frame and am wanting to put 24inch wheels on it ...would this be possible or is it just for 26 ??? As can't find much out about them

Assuming you're using a disc brake rather than rim there's no reason it won't work.

Might ride slightly odd though!

Yeah physically it'll work with a disc but the geometry might a bit odd. From an old thread:

Chainstays - 400mm

Top Tube - 571mm

Seat tube - 310mm

Head tube - 120mm

Head Angle - 74

Seat Angle - 73

BB drop - +.5mm

Wheel Base - 1020ish (haven't put a fork on it)

So yeah, long chain stays and low BB will be interesting (you might want to run short cranks if nothing else) but crack on and enjoy.

It'd ride weird, even with 26" wheels.:P

Yep gonna run a disc without a doubt and short cranks as used to short cranks on flatland bmx 

Its an old frame so prepared for it to feel weird .

Is that the one that was on Facebook marketplace for £20? But yeah, it's gonna make a 2009 Fourplay feel like a Skye!
