well, my rear tire finally gave out. im dreading changing it since there are two chain sets on motorized bicycles and i bought my bike with the engine already installed, so i've never done it before. Is there any thing i should do or look out for in the process? anything to make it easier? im also considering airless inner tubes so i dont have to change them ever again, any suggestions? thanks!

you should find it pretty easy to do - just slip chains off sprockets on both sides as soon as axle is loosened

got one customer that likes them - ride is really hard on the butt when hitting potholes - he got lucky finding a tire that it fit very tight in so as not to feel like riding on a flat

Looking forward to your findings, Jerry. I personally avoided airless due to folks here not liking em but man that would make life easier.
