Default Re: Running fat tires?

I sound like a hot air balloon when I ride- I "burst" the motor on, and it stays on during any long stretch
but when I'm in a residental area with lots of stops or cross traffic- I'm burstin on and off all the time-
the 1 1/8 and 1 1/4" tires will roll a half mile if I'm not pushing a headwind.
I like to roll up to a stop at "cycling speed" so I'm not wearing out the brake pads too.
very pleasant- long noisless rolls- periods almost like the old cyclin'
the motor's cooling down a bit too, and the gas mileage must be ridiculous
probably 200 mpg.

I was just thinkin yesterday they ought to sell a little urban electric car with skinny wheels that freewheels and you could power off and coast at speed.
