Back wheel 700x40c and front wheel 26" x 2.35

I got the back wheel with the motor for free so i thought to myself why not :lol:

Waiting for the battery to be shipped to me, i wonder how the ride will be? Do you think i need to find a matching front wheel? There is also the diameter difference as well as a difference in the tire width.

*i will be adding a disk brake soon, don't mind the diskless hub motor in the picture :lol:

Any thoughts?

I am currently riding a pos bso (ccm, it was free: abandoned: but it ran perfectly) with 26" x 1.90 rear and 24" x 2.50 front, with a pos front hub geared motor. It all evens out with the front tire. I think the stock shocks are toast, but its getting me around. Its a pos 750W so 26A 36V and its really a pos. Its a yescomusa motor, but I cant blame the motor, its the 380 lbs its trying to move, but I still blame the motor :wink:

Your picture of the bike looks like its probably a 250W geared motor. Hopefully you dont have any hills or anything steep, otherwise you'd be huffing and puffing and saying to self "I hate hills!"

As long as the frame has the clearance the 700c wheel should work fine. It is hard to tell from that picture if the frame and the hub have a mount for a rear disc brake.
