AIRFREE TIRES. YAY or NAY.
Hello everybody. i had a thread ,last week i think about good wheels for an over 300 pound rider.
and i believe that i have the wheel part,taken care of.
the inner tube and,tire part,im not so sure about.
it being a lovely day and,not having to go in,i decide to go forth into the city. im loving it, im trying out my new triple crank which i installed myself.new wheels are holding up fine. im spinning, instead of mashing with leg strength, like was suggested. THEN IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMEBODY FIRED A SHOTGUN AT ME AND, I HAVE A REAR FLAT. This is exactly what happened to me before. so i end up, WALKING, a few miles home. luckily, i was on my way back towards the beach,which is back towards my side of town.
so i turn to google and,find -AIRFREE TIRES.I email this hugh guy,he answers me right back,says they can formulate a denser tire for my needs.
a few reviews i have found say,that they are much better than old time solid rubber tires,which i know nothing about. as a matter of fact, i didnt see a negative review. ALTHOUGH,I AM SURE THAT THERE IS ONE.
What i was hoping for was maybe someone has already tried them , Who is a fellow clydesdale.
im leaning 98.5% towards getting an airfree tire for the back wheel.that way i could just enjoy riding without worrying about being stranded. or worse yet,being physically insured from suffering a blowout at a bad moment.
iif knowone has any experience with the airfree tire brand, I GUESS I WILL BLAZE NEW GROUND FOR ALL CLYDESDALES.
A nyone have any experience with - AIRFREE TIRES. of any formulation, if so what size were they.thank you in advance for any responses.
Still waiting for my AIR FREE TIRES
I ordered a set of air free tired 8/29/07 and I am still waiting on them in Late November. Although I told him my weight, and that I wanted something firm, he said it would take a little while longer to make them, I am still waiting. Once I get them and get to try them out, I will let everyone know. My plan is to just put one on the back and see how it goes. If I like it, then go ahead and put one on the front as well.
