I'm dropping to a fifteen for a couple of reasons
a) weight - 17's are to heavy (unless you spend a ton of cash)

b) money - I'm only 19 and going to school - I can't afford the rubber for 17's

c) rolling enertia - scc has aproximated a number value to the power lost by a larger diameter rim "a pound (in the outside of a rim) is equal to a fifty pound ballast in a car." - and my 17's are heavy

d) road conditions - I live in Canada and we only spend 4% of our gas taxes (which are 46 - 54% of the price of gas) on road repair - some of our roads are really bad and I like having a little extra rummber to absorb the rough surfaces - especially after I lower my ride
