Cylon, you take any video of you going on trails or helmet cam?
Like to see what the bike does.
I have something 1.75 to 2.25 somewhere forgot what to be exact for tires.
Just at some trails no bike tire can handle so it is limited.
I have Kenda tires with large knobby that about 3 years ago maybe, the cost were only 15 dollars each at REI. These seem not to be found at that price any more.
They have tires I see costing 75 dollars at top tier, but nothing probably at even 25 dollars. I have never had a flat with these.
Only just recently I have had a blow out on the tube in the rear tire, but I know what happened. I accidentally created a fold in the tube probably and inflated it not knowing. 20 minute later boom.
The fold was created which I think is why, was because of my being hasty in reinstalling tire in the drop outs. I have to take the rear wheel off to access working on the jackshaft pulleys occasionally.
Really I need to have a quick release on the rear brakes, since I don't it takes loosening the cable which is a little extra time.
Also emptying the tire of most the air. I emptied maybe too much air and did not release the brake cable. Knobby stick out and catch on the brake shoes (these are V-brakes on the rim).
Well I bought another tube to replace the one I always keep on hand for such occasions.
Oh forgot to mention, I modified the left side rear stay for extra room so belt and tire rub does not happen. My bike lacks pedals, but I use it only on trails legally with OHV Registration from DMV.
