Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Tires?

I had a horrible time with flats on a Kulana Moon Dog...I ended up wrapping the rim (over the spoke ends) with electrical tape -3 layers thick, and no more flats. I'm still running LOW tire pressure, maybe 40-45 lbs, because I'm still a bit paranoid after 4 flats, but I'm pretty confident now, with close to 400+ miles on the bike with no issues after that...well, wait, I also changed the tires to teh Bell Kevlar Comfort tires - more rounded, and Kevlar, extra thick Slime Tubes, and a Mr. Tuffy's to protect from punctures.

Will definitely check it out, thanks much MarkTur.
Starting a new post Brake Jam< i think in Motorized kits.

I won't be posting found the problem, a broken bolt on the sprocket plate,
coming into contact with the brake arm as the wheel turns, Bummer, don't ask me how it happened, I was working on it late and it happened and went unnoticed. I really wish there was a specification on those bolts that tighten the plate against the pads.
