That worked out damned well. The Bike Hut at Pier 40 didn't have foam tires, but they had a 20 inch tire and tube for $15 and they let me borrow their tools. So with a $5 donation, I got out of there with a working bike and only spent $20. Celebrating with a pint of Anchor Steam at the Public House down the street.

The BikeE is surprisingly easy to fix. Just loosen the two 15mm nuts, unclip the quick-disconnect for the internal gears, and the rear wheel is in your hands. A 20x1.5 tire fits it just fine.
