Quick way to fix a rear flat on a ebike

I found this deferent type of tube on line .
It looks like it would work good for getting home after getting a flat on the rear tire .
Just a lot easier and faster than having to pull the rim .
I hope to never have to use it but bet I will :)

I believe you could run one of these in your fat tires to get you home
I know some people that run 26x2.5 tubes in their 26x4 fat tires just for weight reduction

You're right, both of our fat bikes have regular 26 inch tubes. They expand just fine for fat tire use.

well they expand just fine but then they are thinner and more overfilled than they are designed for so they aren't as thick or puncture resistant as a result. You may get a flat or two that you wouldn't with the correct size.

For me, I use Mr. Tuffy tire liners and a patch kit. I use to buy tubes but kind of regret it after putting 1400+ miles in the last 6 months without any problems.
