That choice is kind of irrelevant, tho I'd stick with 700c since that's what's on my bikes...

For commuting, what matters more is the tires that you'll be putting on those rims--a much more important choice than 26 vs 700c.

Some here might offer that a training tire is good enough (maybe 25mm/700c), while others might say that something fatter would be better--maybe a 32mm, or even bigger.

It depends on your likes/dislikes, your commute, what bike/rims you're putting them on, and so on.

There's no single answer. Google: 26" vs 700C

--Mike--
yeah .. I have two friends at work who are keen riders - two different answers

I think the main reason I'm asking is that it will sort out the bike that I will get ..
26" is the Scott Sub30 and the 700c is a Giant escape R3 both are good bikes

just want get something and start riding :bike:

neither of 26" nor 700C
I dare say that a mamachari with power support would be best.

Why? :D
1) easy to maintain (economically)
2) easy to climb up (even if you were worn out)
3) not easy to be broken (against intentional cause)
