8strange, I can't find any 29inch tyres.

Worst dealer I ever found in my life. From my experience, do not buy anything, in case of problems, they will blame you.

Agree, Big Apple or big Ben are absolutely wonderful.
So fast and puncture resistant
This may be of use to less educated people (such as myself) as the tyre size on the website meant nothing to me.

Hi. Can you or anyone tell me if these tyres are suitable/compatible, and are they any better quality than the original tyres that come with E-Plus 700c Electric Hybrid Bike, 26 inch wheel size.

Apparently, Germans use 28" for 700C, where this site is based.

"29 inch" is usually a marketing term for a mountain bike with 700c wheels, though in theory the rim width might cause some problems with narrower road and hybrid tyres. 28 inch is apparently also a term used in Germany for 700c tyres, just to be extra confusing. (On the other hand, 27.5 inch is a different wheel size entirely, as is 27 inch.) Sheldon Brown's site has a fairly comprehensive list of which size is what: sheldonbrown.com/tir…tml

Do you have the bike, what it stamped on the sidewalls of the tyres just now as it mentions 700c wheels and 26 tyres in the argos description ?
Most hybrid and road bikes will be 700 wheels. You then decide on the width of the tyre. I would suggest that most hybrids look to at least 32mm, and perhaps up to 28mm on a road bike. Also your weight should be taken into account when choosing, if you are 18 stone you should not be running on 23mm tyres unless you can pump them up to 125psi. Your frame and brakes may limit the width you can fit on your bike.

I had little big bens on my bike until recently but the tread pattern was allowing things like stones to get embedded in the tread just off the centre band (if that makes sense). No big deal until a bit of sharp wire got lodged there and cost me two inner tubes. Now I use marathon pluses. The tread wouldn't allow the same to happen again. They are nowhere near as comfy to ride on though.
Marathon plus are indestructible and VERY uncomfortable. Try big apples. I only get about one puncture a year with them and they are almost as fast and ten times more pleasant to ride on.
I never pay more than twenty quid for one and, sometimes, on the on one site they shift them for around £12

That's pretty typical of box shifter type companies that operate on a low margin. Probably wise to keep to products that are relatively simple like tyres and unlikely to give problems.
Also worth keeping an eye on planet x, they can be quite good for clearance deals on tyres. They also have postage on top though, even though UK based but not as dear.

Don't tighten the centre but as that will just lock the pads on. Loosen the finger bolt in pic 3 to lengthen the cable to decrease the pad to disc distance.

Brake squeal will fade with use.

Cheers, I will give it ago , I take it the finger bolt is the silver one with the wire/cable sticking out of it or the black barrel slightly above in photo 3 , so to lengthen cable do I let the cable back up through finger bolt or do I pull cable down/out through finger bolt giving more tension , then retightening finger bolt after?

As per the earlier comment they are described as 28" in Germany but the same size. Use the iso size if unsure, 622 I think which should be on the tyre. Just make sure you choose a tyre compatible with your rims. Standard road bike tyres something like 23mm to 28mm if you want to go bigger you'll need to check compatibility with your rims.

The bell inner tubes sold at walmart were meant to be made by CST and quite possible the tyres are as well. Decent low end products and good value. Nothing amazing though. For inner tubes CST compete with Kenda as the OEM supplier for many brands. Tends to be CST gets the brands lower in pecking order and Kenda makes for the better brands like Giant etc. Same is probably true of the tyres.

Just turn the black barrel anticlockwise

Or you could turn the similar barrel coming out the brake lever

It never worked brake keeps touching disc no matter how much I tinker with it plus now i have a permanent squeaks. I will just have to go to a bike store, otherwise I will never get it in working order. Btw i had a look at my tire info it says 700x 38c so if i need to replace is that the size I should look for, even if I want tubeless or just top quality anti puncture tyres?

Well if that is your original tyre size then you can certainly buy that size again. That's a typical tyre for a hybrid bike with 700c wheels. I'd keep to that size unless there is a strong reason to change it.

Lots of guides on youtube for adjusting disc brakes.

Yes those will be compatible with your rim and existing inner tubes. The middle of the range given is 38 so probably a very similar size to existing. It's confusing when they describe a size as 700 x 32-45c as normally it would be one size like 700x38c but I guess they are trying to make it easy for people to know if the tyre is compatible with their rim. However if someone had a 700x32c tyre on their existing wheel and not enough clearance for 700x38c then its not so helpful possibly. This assumes the the tyre is 700x38c right in the middle of the size width given but it certainly looks that way as you can see the fairly beefy tyre rolled up in its packaging. Seems Bell tyres can be sourced from multiple factories with Innova also being a supplier. I think Nutrak tyres also use Innova.

Thats fine for any geared bike but is illegal I believe in UK as needs to be setup for pedal assist and can't see that mentioned in the description. It could be a throttle control. Also the battery capacity is incredibly low and the price to ship from Europe (spain) is getting on £290. If you ship from China you will likely incure higher VAT and import charges that could take it over £300.

I don't know what your existing bike is and how good but might be better to sell that and buy something like this;

May not be much different in price in real terms and you'll have a warranty with UK support.

Any mods invalidate warranty and as for the stresses I think that would depend on the bike design. Many e-bikes with front hub motors don't seem to have any reinforcing there, they look pretty typical for that type of bike. I personally can't see it being a problem but I guess it depends on how you use it. If you don't pedal and try to get the motor to pull you up a 3:1 gradient I can see the forks failing but in normal use with the cyclist still pedalling I can't see much problem. There is a difference between an e-bike and a e-mountain bike though, the latter is designed around stronger components and probably more likely to have a mid-mount bottom bracket type motor.

If your forks fail just refit your conventional wheel before returning it to store for warranty work

Really can't see the forks failing though. The wheel itself seems by far the weakest link and most likely to fail.

Did it get through customs without additional charges? Just curious.
