Is there a bobbin type device I could fit to the handle bar as a distance piece to take the weight of the bike ?
How do others repair punctures etc?
I’m quite a keen cyclist and have always been used to simply upending my bikes and standing them on their bars and saddle
If it's just to protect the controller from being scratched when against the ground then a track mitt or similar over it will work. Bike is probably not so heavy that it will crush it. Certainly the ebike we have for the missus isn't that heavy.
And as others have said, a strap to hold the relevant end up by tying to a gate or similar whilst wheel is out is a good idea.
I would also strongly recommend fitting tyres like marathon+ which are extremely resistant to punctures in the first place. And always keep an eye on the tyre pressures.
