Every bike iv'e ever seen/played with has the same setup from roadies to dirt to trials. Motorbikes Always have a bigger front than the rear, dunno why, it just is what it is.

i have always been the the bigger front wheel is for better handling the the smaller back wheel means the bike doesnt need to work as hard to spin it....... well for road bikes atleast.

when it comes to dirtbikes/pitbikes a larger front wheel makes it handle better in rough terrain and a smaller back wheel is good for acceleration therefor why there is different sizes
