    UPDATE on Aug 5, 2023 [#14][M2S] .. I FINALLY killed my ebike battery.. new info: times 3.. PickleBall info, too.

    Hi Catalyzt, Thanks for the kind words. Yes, I do tend to ramble on most of the time as I attempt to convey my hard-learned lessons on to other EBR viewers. And nowadays, with so many new ebike companies out and about in their attempts to penetrate the already saturated market, I am hoping...

    Yes, they are smooth as butter. Absolutely quiet. Prior to the Shinko 241 tires, I was using SHINKO 244 tires. The 244's were very noisy-- other trail users could always hear me/my tires approaching. The SHINKO 241's, on other other hand, though quite knobby/gnarly in appearance, are so quiet I...

    Hi dwoodul51. The proof is in the 3 photo's below. The 2 photo's showing a blue rim are the SHINKO 241 motorcycle tires at mile #8,726 of wear. (1 is the rear tire.. 1 is the front tire.) The other photo (showing the white bike frame) is another of my ebikes with a Kenda Juggernaut 26"x4"...

    "c). I selected the 52v/20ah battery with the DC2.1mm connector, and without charger. Jenny told me that a flat blade in-line fuse (usually 30 or 40amp) was not included on this size because of space constraints.. Not too happy about that, but not a deal breaker, either." Hi all, I...

    UPDATE on Aug 5, 2023 [#14][M2S] .. I FINALLY killed my ebike battery.. new info: times 3.. PickleBall info, too.

    In regards to my aforementioned "overnight charging" thought : I just came across this ArielRder YouTube video .. It just goes to show our fellow ebikers how convoluted, and dangerous, the "professionals" (ArielRider, etc) can be in advertising their own ignorance of their products.

    [#8] X52.. Water Bottle holders..Torque Washers.. Step-Over Frame modification.

    Hi, Welcome to EBReview.. That is definitely sound advice for sure. I have decided that my best option is to just leave the frame as is and go ahead and make sure that I always have ready access to a curb, a rock, etc. when it comes to mounting/dismounting. That seems to be working okie-dokie...

    Need suggestions for tire replacement

    Yes, the Shinko tires are about twice as heavy as the stock ebike tires. They are also thicker, much more heavy duty, and pretty much negate the use of/carrying-on-the-ride these following items: a flat repair patch kit.. multiple tire levers.. portable air pump (or co2 inflation...

    The Shinko's should fit without any problem. You might peruse YouTube to see what others are saying/doing, too. Just remember: size 16"x3" for the tires and 16"x2.75-3.0 for the inner tubes. Maybe a fellow EBR viewer can give you a definite verification in regards to your specific ebike...
