The topic of tyre swapping and alternatives comes up more frequently these days. So I cut this from another thread. It's a tiny bit messy, but a lot of questions are answered by the data. Here's what my research has pulled up. Most of us know by now that bicycle tyres/tires are specified by the total diameter of the tyre, not the rim it fits on, as per the rest of the tyre world. So for example a 14" EUC actually has a 10" rim. However things get complicated with machines like the Gotway Nikola which is a 17" wheel, not because the rim is bigger, but because the tyre on it is a
So I had an unfortunate visit with the pavement today and the crack I hit was big enough and I was going fast enough that I have bent the rim on the wheel. It has a rhythmic thumping feel now as I ride around although it is probably not audible to others. I can just feel it as I ride. Does anyone know: 1) How hard it is to fix this? 2) How dangerous it is to ride on it like this? Maybe this just means I need to buy a new wheel???
Not sure if anyone has had this happen before - part of the rim of my E+ fractured off when attempting to do a 360 degree hop off of the side of a 40 cm box. I didn't land quite straight and the rim just gave way as I landed - completely my own fault. I knew I had eaten a little too much over the festive season but thought I'd of worked it off by now I still have the motor from my old E+ so will try to reuse that, otherwise i'll need to try and source a replacement. Does anyone know if you can separate the motor from the wheel rim or is it a sealed unit?
