Are those 24. something tyres billi?

I have some new tyres sitting here ready to fit (something i've not needed to do for over 20 years & not then to an e-hub back wheel) ..because the damp on the road took me out as I de-cellerated to almost nothing (5mph) & the bike slid from beneath me (disc brakes front & rear) ..twice.

Now i'm due to try some "crazy bob"  which are grip for BMX ramps etc ...not bog hoppers but just to say don't underestimate the loss of grip from tyres & the traction (assist level setting) when gearing down.

My (other) knee is jiggered!

Be prepared to be hung drawn & quartered by the local pub bore though billi ..they claim this is all pointless, choose a point to call them crass & go silent until they cannot suffer the stifling silence of their own making & go off to find another victim.

(I get called allsorts for having an e-bike).  bike ..but wow, they are a great option to have around, & "fun" with it.
