Wheel Base (WB)
The wheel base of every bicycle is measured from the center of the hub of the front to the rear wheel. This is not an overall measurement of the entire length of the bike, simply the middle of the front to the middle of the rear wheel. This way, tire size does not have an affect over this measurement.
