Standard cruisers seem to have quite a following...along with a BB that is higher than most...Is part of the reason for their popularity the difference in handling the higher BB offers?
The reason I ask is that I've been experimenting with one of the newer freestyle 24s (with a much higher BB) and now find my race cruiser (with the regular 12" BB) a little sluggish in comparison.
Does it make that much of a difference? And how does the higher BB work in a race situation? Or perhaps, to those that have ridden the lower BB frames and the higher BB frames...which do you prefer?
