    With DJ MTB's, 26" wheels is the norm. 24"s tend to be either for short riders or riders who want a more tech-trick setup particularly for street or skatepark more so than dirt.

    Brands, look at smaller 'hardcore' companies like Blackmarket, NS, Atomlab, Transition. Or the big companies like Specialized, Kona, Haro, Giant, Trek, etc.
