Howdy all!!

 
Getting ready to buy my first recumbent...2 wheeler that is..Going to take a test ride at bicycle x-change in wichita ks...
Was wondering...would a 20" inch front tire work ok on a dirt road..or should the front and back wheels be the same diameter?
 
I know my specialized hard rock...2" x 29" wheels deal with the road irregularities very well...

    I mtb on a 29r but my Bacchetta Aero is dual 650. Not sure I’d want a high bottom bracket for dirt. Plus I think you can put a larger tire on the 20” wheel. I’d go for a Giro 26x20
