    Fixing a flat 20"fat tire e-bike

    Personally, I don't find smaller diameter tires any harder to work with. Fat tires, on the other hand, can be a little trickier than narrower tires just due to the size. However, if you're accustomed to fixing flats on other bikes you shouldn't need any special tips or techniques.

    Budnitz Ebike

    First eBike recommendations

    Of those mentioned, personally I like the Electra Townie. That's partly because I love the classic cruiser style, partly for the Bosch drive, and partly for the internally-geared hub. BTW, kudos for still riding at 76 years young!
