comment Can I change my 28“ wheels for 24”?
@KristaA. Everyone (well, almost) rides bikes that don't fit up until and often through their teenage years. Our parents buy our first bikes so that we can touch the ground while we first learn because it's safer. We get our "big kid" bikes and they fit a little better. But we grow quickly and our bikes stay the same. As that happens, we adapt to riding a bike that's too small. All of the sudden, we're fully-grown teenagers and still riding a child's bike. Later, we buy ourselves our first adult bike and, if nobody tells us we're doing it wrong, try to fit it like our childhood bike.

comment Sourcing wheels for hybrid bike
@Blam I think with a performance hybrid, we can safely assume 700c rims running something like a 30-32mm tire width, not likely to have 25mm rims.

comment Sourcing wheels for hybrid bike
It sounds like your primary concern is running narrow tires. If that's the case and it were me, I'd just throw some 23s on and see what happens before I spent a chunk of change on a new wheelset. As Sheldon notes, those charts are conservative. At worst, you start getting more pinch flats. But considering the cost of a wheelset, it's a cheap experiment.
