Default Re: Flat resistent tires?

I used to have rear flats nearly every other week I think.. The perils of riding to work in an industrial area. I tried wrapping a split tube around my new tube and it improved the situation. I replaced the rear tire with a Kenda one from Wallymart with the kevlar strip in it. When I changed it instead of jacketing the good tube, I folded the split one in about 3 layers between the tire and the tube. I keep my pressure a few psi lower (55-60 instead of 60-65) and it's doing really well so far.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
