I'm mostly using my bike for committing and I'm not crazy about the fat tires. They don't handle too great. Has anyone tried to put in 3" tires instead of the 4" tires?
Hi, Dan. Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. I am grateful for learning about this new product and I do wish VoltBike every success. Despite their delivery issues they seem to be selling a quality product at a very competitive price. And I'm glad to own my Yukon 750. That said, I'm not prepared to buy another bike right now so I was trying to see if they're was a way I could make some modifications to my bike to make it more closely align with my needs -- commuting that sometimes requires sharp turns and the 4" tires don't inspire me with a lot of confidence in them.Not tried 3 inch tires but are you aware that Voltbike launched a new bike this week? The Voltbike Bravo. Its basically the same as the Yukon 750 except it has 2.1 inch tires, 500w motor and 14v 12.8Ah battery. $300 cheaper than the Yukon 750 Ltd.
Thanks, Mississauga. Do you think the rear tire blew out because it was smaller? And it was the actual tire that blew out, not just the inner tube? Crazy! What brand of tires did you go with? Those look like good road tires, which is what I'm looking for.Here is a set of 3x26 on my Teo, it looks kind of funny with all the free space however the bike rides like a dream, quiet and it seems to be glued to pavement. Unfortunately after the first 5 miles the back tire blew up or blew from inside out, so for now I just have one of each, makes everyone wonder wtf.... when they see it.
Those look like nice road tires, as well! Are they 26 x 3.5? Where'd you get them? I don't see them on Amazon.I went from 4" Kendas, which are awful on hard surfaces to 3.5 Vtire speedsters. Huge improvement
Yes, 26x3.5 at around 25 PSI. Handle great and really soaks up a lot of the bumps and mini craters. Zero flats , so far. I forget where I bought them.Those look like nice road tires, as well! Are they 26 x 3.5? Where'd you get them? I don't see them on Amazon.
Do they handle well? How would they compare to someone coming from a regular mountain bike? What do you keep the psi at?

I get those popping and crunching sounds with the Supercells too. I know everything's okay, but I still cringe.I've ridden this route several times now on the new tires and despite some really loud "popping" sounds from some of the debris the tires are still perfect.
