The groupset is the main componentry on a bike: brakes, shift levers and drive-train, this includes the chain, cassette, derailleurs and chainset. Each manufacturer produces different 'groups' for different budgets and applications. It is common for bike companies to use 'mixed' groups or to use compatible componentry from 3rd party suppliers.
Wiggle have described groupset level according to which shifters the bike has as other parts of the groupset are often 'mixed'.
Bicycle wheels come in a wide range of sizes from 12" wheels found on smaller Kids Bikes to larger 29" Mountain Bike and 700c Road Bike wheels. Larger wheels are normally faster and more stable at speed and their larger contact patch improves grip too. Smaller wheels are normally lighter, more maneuverable and have quicker acceleration.
Wheel sizes are defined by the country that first popularized the style of bike that used them - so you'll see some imperial and some metric measurements listed. Wiggle includes the ISO standard in brackets after each for ease of comparison.
