Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

I had a look at the 29'er bicycle tires... just a quick search...

The Maxxis Icon Exc 29x2.2 doesn't look like too bad a tire for a motorized bicycle.
Yet it is $65 +

My son really has a preference for the 29'er pedal bike he recently got.
And he makes use of it a lot!
Of course, mostly street riding, but he also does a lot of dirt-trail stuff I am glad I do not watch. He is aggressive and is sure he's bullet-proof.

Never-the-less, at this time, for a motorized bicycle usually run on the street, I am almost sure there are more suitable options, at more reasonable prices in the 26" rim size.

I would NOT buy a 29'er for my own use.

Dealing with the Presta valve is no more than an inconvenience for most riders. Many current pedal bikers are set up for them.

My two cents.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
