  1. I bought an electric motor for a 26 in bike I am 6’1” tall can you recommend a 26 in bike that will handle me?

  2. Your toes should be able to touch the ground without difficulty (if they can’t reach then your saddle may not be high enough)

    This does not make sense to me. Can you clarify?

    Don’t you mean “too high”?

    1. Yes, Too high

      If your saddle is too high, your toes will not be able to touch the ground without difficulty. This means that you may be sitting too high in the saddle and this can cause various problems. For example, it can make it difficult to pedal or sudden break in traffic.

  3. I am 6′ 2″ and 66 yr. My weight is 195. Inseam is 35″. I have a bike with 26″ tires that need replaced. It has 1 3/8 rims. I have a pair of new 26 x 1.9 tires/tubes. I am having difficulty installing these. I don’t have the strength any more to install. I have no transport at this time, it’s broke down. I need help. I walk with a cane, retired. I have no way to mobilize. I don’t know what to do. Can you help or refer me to someone who can?
