Obviously not !  :)
I've been watching this post for a while.
I have an R&M ebike with fat (ish) tyres (62-584) and changing an innertube whilst out on a ride would be impossible due to a bad back (old age)
So after a prompt reply to a query from Sylvia at GAADI I think I'll give it a try.

....Just seen Dan's mention back in 2012.

You might also consider Zefal Repair Spray. I was a bit sceptical till I saw it used a while ago, the rider was still using the bike a week later, though it's only supposed to be a temporary fix.

I've started carrying it on the bike that only gets used to go to the train station, I've nothing to lose, taking a wheel out and fixing a puncture would mean missing the train anyway.

Well I've given up.  It's neigh on impossible to get German sellers to sell me the required tubes due "to Brexit".
The Delivery fees are over and above the cost of the tubes !

After a colleague had two punctures on his ebike I decided to persevere.  GAADI had a bit of hassle finding a carrier who would actually carry them, due, I suppose to BREXIT paperwork but they arrived this afternoon.  Hopefully I will never have to use them in anger but who knows ?.  It's a pity there are no Marathon PLUS tyres of that size.
So  ...... if I do have to use them I'll let you know.
