Re: Desire Expert regarding rims/tire sizes - explanation

could subtract 559 from 573 which equals 14 divide that by 2 for each side of the rim this gives 7 measure this in from outer of rim should land on the bead seat confirming 559 :mrgreen:

Re: help for full suspension mountain e-trike

does look like might lift one of the front wheels if you cornered hard but I think the design is more to stop bike falling over when stopped or low speed , do you mean toot angle ,which stands for toe out on turns , basically makes the wheel on the inside of the turn steer a bit more than the outer ...

Re: 19.6 miles per day - range of 52volt 19.2 ah battery with 1000 watt motor?

I agree with 999zips and donns more conservative figure so between 25 to 30 miles range , but tyre choice is a factor, also weather is a big a range killer, my off road tyres on road cost me at least 5 miles range of the charge :es:

573 mm is 22.5 inches and 524mm is 20.5 inches , have you figured out its a motorbike rim yet :mrgreen: only tyre that comes close is a 21 inch motor bike tyre ,plus if you measured correct that gives rim profile depth of 24mm which is quite deep I think , for sure is not a 26inch rim though :wink: ...
