    Probably a mute piont,but I gotta ask,why is the rear wheel almost always smaller than the front,(and fatter)Is it for performance,asthetics??Curious as hell!

    Good question, I would guess that it's because that's where most of the weight transfer is to and it carries most of the weight of the rider and passenger.
