Recently I’ve been getting a lot of flats in the rear tire on the bike and just realised that the tires are just coming up to their first birthday and, given the amount of cycling I do, are due for a change – frequent flat is always a big indicator that your tires need changing.
I’ve always advocated using Kevlar/Gatorback/hard case tires – they may be a little more expensive but the peace of mind they give you on the road I feel is worth it. Also there are speed and comfort cost but still worth it.
Up to this I have generally gone for the Specialized Nimbus Kevlar options but this year was persuaded by the guys in WheelWorx to try out these Bontrager Hardcases. Looking forward to a run out on them tomorrow.
