Getting my 1st E-bike in a couple of days. What tires should I get?
I am pretty excited about getting this bike. I have limited funds so I could only afford a modest model and brand. The bike is a Coast Smart Ride. I purchased it with a 2yr. platinum service protection plan and 24/7 phone support.
Its a basic 24V lead acid set-up with a pedal assist mode and 250w motor. I like the simplicity of the bike and have worked with electric motors most of my life. I like looks of the frame and could always upgrade components in the future.
Here is a link to the bike: http://www.coastelectricbike.com/
I plan to strip it down to look like this:
The bike will be used mostly on paved and gravel "rails to trails" terrain for pleasure and exercise.
My first question would be on what tires to get get. My first choices are the Schwalbe Big Apple (if it will fit) or the Marathon Plus. Any other recommendations are greatly appreciated!
