Wheel options on the Airnimal Joey

There have been a number of developments in the Airnimal Joey range. The Joey Sport with 8-speed derailleur and the ISO 520 (24 inch) wheel is still offered and popular at £695. Three new models are being added though, and these use the 507 wheel, confusing also known as a 24 inch wheel. The new models are:
Joey Commute - 8 speed Nexus hub gear £795
Joey Explore - 3x8 Dual Drive £899
Joey Expore Elite - 14-speed Rohloffhub gear £1495
The 507 wheel generally gives a bigger 'air pocket', and some good 'off road' tyres, but also Schwalbe Marathon and a wide range of other road or slick tyres.
