I certainly would if I were near those bikes but I'm left coast this weekend and won't be back in NYC until mid next week. I'll come back here with my caliper measurements - I do use Mammoth Fat rims which are fairly wide but I dunno the spec off the top of my head.-dg wrote:I'm on the fence about ordering a set of Cyclops or a set of 26x2.00 RibMos as the clearance may be to tight depending on how big the Cyclops are really. How do you like the UfDa? How much smaller is the UfDa? If you don't mind, could you measure the Cyclops or UfDa width as well as the rim width it is mounted on and post it?Ykick wrote:It's often tough to tell if you'll have clearance issues with wide 2.25-2.5" tires. Recently, I wished to install a 2.4" Cyclops on my newest Cannondale V900 - I already use that tire on my other V900 but the swingarm is slightly different. The result is that the Cyclops will fit one bike but not the other. Luckily, I had 2.3" wide Panaracer UfDa handy and it just clears the slightly narrower swingarm.
Wes helped answer, but UfDa's seem fine to me for around $22 or so. I only had them because Cyclops' were out of stock and rumored to be soon discontinued a winter or two ago. News of their demise seems to not be the case though because I recently bought a pair (Cyclops) from Niagara and they indicated around 300 available.
Most eBikes are heavy and fast compared to pedal bicycles thus the need for fat tires.
Flats from sharp debris will simply be luck of the draw IMO. Kevlar does seem to help with thorns and maybe glass but a steel screw, bolt, nail, staple or similar will puncture through any Kevlar ply tire I've ever used.
I ride year 'round 4k miles per year over brutal roads.
