eBike Wheels & Tire Guide

Your Tower Beach Bum or Beach Babe comes with 26 inch wheels front on back. The stock tires are the Schwalbe Fat Frank tires, which are 26 inch x 2.35 inch tires. This means they have a wheel size of 26 inches in diameter, and then a tire width of 2.35 inches. To get a new tube for the stock tires, you would just need to find a 26” tube that had a range 2.3 would fall into. They ranges will vary from brand to brand, but an example would be a 26” x 1.95-2.4, or 26” x 2.1-2.5. Either of these would work as the width of 2.3 falls in between both of those.

The wheels they are on feature stainless steel 12g and 13g spokes, which help withstand high levels of torque, but are also rust resistant!

This section will cover all of the various wheel services you may need to do on your Tower electric bike. This includes flat tire repair, new tire installation, spoke replacement, and wheel trues.
