I want to switch to the Kevlar tires but at $45 each that is gonna wait till after the holidays.
I have considered the solid "puncture-proof" for $95 each but the guy at the bike shop warns me that they tend to slip off the rim. Sounds bad @ 40 mph.
Also, search under "slime" in this forum. Some users swear by it.
i've had baaadddd experiences with those solid tires. ruined a bike one time because of it.
was rounding a corner on a sidewalk when the tire slipped off, rim made me skid into the street when the bike frame got bent from the impact. (it was electric and going at about 20mph)
