Ok.. here's the deal. I keep getting flats from thorns. I'm using WTB Nanoraptors, thorn-resistant tubes and tuffy strips. Doesn't matter.. still have a flat every freaking morning after a good ride. The thorns are penetrating everything. New day, new thorn, new tube.
I originally wanted a good road/off-road tire and the WTB Nanoraptor was PERFECT. ..but perhaps too soft.
My riding buddy has piece of crap Wal-Mart dime-a-dozen knobbys and hasn't had a flat yet...and we ride in the same places.
Can you guys/gals give me a good recommendation on a tire..I guess I can sacrifice a bit of road-friendlyness.. but I need something that's hard, tough, mean, fearless and full of zeal and vigor.
