Default Re: High speed tires

Well, Also gotta realise: whens the last time you ever saw a bike tire fail?

I mean, sure iv had rubbing till the tube pokes out. Seen people riding with half a roll of duct tape around the rim, But iv never heard of a tire failing, At least, Not failing faster then anyone could of noticed bald spots about 2 weeks before it failed.

The rims however can fail pertty badly... Iv seen a carbon fiber rim that grenaded at the local bike shop. I just buy really heavy bike parts. More metal = less engineering on saving weight = more likey to just bend/flex and not break.
