Slime and E Bikes

Wife and I received our EBC MODEL E bikes.
1st ride got home front tire flat.
Fixed.
Second ride got home wife's front tire flat.
Bike Company mailing 2 new inner tubes.
BUT WAIT
Watched YouTube videos and this works 100%
Used the green slime in all 4 tires as fix and preventative.
Lora & I can't imagine pushing 60 pound bikes home.

Good luck our friends.

I canít remember which company it was, but one manufacturer was offering free slime fill and bike lock as one of their promotion deals on certain models.

Any bike needs it.
I remember using it years ago on my regular 21 speed and never a flat. The weight of e bikes is a big issue for Flats

Slime is great. But Flat Out may be even better.

Look into tire liners. Its a nylon/plastic strip that you insert between the tire and the tube. The center part of the liner is a bit thicker, and pretty tough. The edges are thinner and more pliable. I've used them for years on both road and mt bikes.
Slime can get quite messy when its a bad puncture.
Cheers!

You can purchase inner tubes that already come with Slime in them so they will self seal while riding.

I found "Tireject" https://www.tireject.com to be a superior product to "slime" in bikes, golf carts and mowers, or anything that doesn't go fast.

NOT SUITABLE for Cars, Trucks, RV's, to my knowledge, just slow or off road vehicles only.

Fantastic for my Fat tire ebike, as it is a Goathead magnet

I stand corrected, just went to the website and read that. When I first used the product over 5 years ago anything over 30mph was taboo.

All my ATV's have sealant as do the rider mowers, most are tubeless a few tubes on trailers

DW's car had it for over 39 years, different vehicles, due to the 23 miles of dirt and gravel roads

This was in tubeless tires

Amount is determined by tire volume

Goatheads are the pits

not sure of your tire size for your ebike, but I put on my road bike Tannus airless tires, they are solid, and ride like a normal tire. They are a little pricey and they don't have wide tires.
