Converting a Fat Tyre Bike to an Ebike


New member
What are the advantages and disadvantages of converting a fat tyre bike to an electric bike for commuting? My commute is about 10 miles in total.

Fat tyres have a lot more resistance on the ground and for commuting your battery will not last as long. You should go with a bike with tyres from 2 - 2.5 inches wide. Fat tyres also weigh a lot more and it will be harder to pedal home when it runs out of juice. I would recommend converting a normal mountain bike to an ebike for commuting.
