I commute (17 miles each way) on my motorized bicycle and flats were a major issue. I am now using: the thicker "thorn resistant" inner tube, nylon liners inside the tire and good, thick, unworn tires. After averaging 2 flats a week I have now gone a month without any.
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.
