    One thing I have noticed going back and forth between 24"x1" and
    24" x 1 3/8" is that the rim (I use Spinergy 540 rims) sits about 1/4" to 1/2 " taller with 24 X 1 3/8" than than the 24" x1". ( and of course conversely, slightly shorter / lower with 24"x1" tires)

    When I place them side by side I can see and measure the difference in height. So, if your experience is like mine you will be slightly lower on rear stf with 24" X 1" . It is a very subtle difference but I can feel it slightly in the seating.

    Am I crazy or do others experience this?

    No problem. I've run three different sizes on the same wheel/rim. It's the innertube size that has to change. It needs to be proportional to the tire size. 1" for 1" tire and so on.
