Nice. No worries about punctures (except to other things) and they are tubeless -- latest thing!

 ;D

All the best,

I think I'd be fitting a rack on that? (an Andy Blance tip!)

Nicely made vid.  And a well set-up home workshop too.  But - why is his bike so clean??

Those large-diameter blades can be their own discs: economical of components, low weight, lots of cooking surface.

I certainly wouldn't be fitting an electric motor to that bike without first contriving a dead man's throttle like on railway engines so that the default is for the wheels to stop turning.

When the original rear "wheel" started cutting into the ice (very soft! -- mind you, at -25 or so, his wheel wouldn't, er, cut much ice in these parts), I thought, "This is gong to end badly, cold and wet."

Marginally preferable to waking up in a Salvador Dali painting...
