Default Re: Tires and tubes that resist flats?

Back on topic...
Get tires that are designed for the road or off road conditions you will use them under. Then,
line them and use the extra heavy "thorn proof" tubes. Then, don't ride at the extreme right (
if in US) of the road. That's where all the crap ends up that will give you flats. I ride in the right
tire area and only move over to let traffic pass.
Now, go to a pool supply store and by enough backwash/drain hose to line both tires. Use contact
cement on the inside of the tire and one side of the hose to hold it in place while you mount the
tire to the rim. Then kiss flat tires good bye.

...I'm not saying we should just kill all the stupid people. Just do away with warning labels and let things sort themselves out.
