Hi, I have a Mountain Bike, and a road bike.
EVERY time I go out on the road bike I get a flat on the rear.very rarely the front.Tyre pressures 90-100 psi.
I inflate with a standing pump with a guage at home and CO2 on the road.
I have tried neoprene tyres, anti puncture strips, new rim tape et al.
I don't repair tubes, I always fit new..it's getting very expensive.
The roads I cycle are good
I have been mending punctures and fixing my own bikes for 60 years and never had this type of problem.
I am a toolmaker so know tools.
I have put KY on the rims so that no danger of pinches. Never use tools to replace tyre.
My bike repair shop have fitted new tyres and tubes,(they have been listening to my woes a long time, so were meticulous), just in case I have been kidding myself on my abilities. I got a flat 30 mins after leaving the shop.
I still get flats, they appear as pin ******.
I replace tubes at roadside and at home.
have had guys bring tubes from Europe, thinking it may have been quality, all they get are made in taiwan.
I am beginning to believe that it may be my weight..95 kg, when I consider the tiny contact with the road.
I don't get many punctures on my mountain bike.
Should I give up road biking..is there something else I could buy..expense no object ?
Yours in Desperation
