    Flat tires!

    Man, I am averaging a flat per month...Maybe it's all the debirs on the Jersey roads. I switched to the armadillo tire treads today with some new tubes and am hoping that the kevlar wall helps me avoid these punctures.
    Anyone have any experience puncture proofing your rides?

    I used to use Slime until I found out how much it sucks... actually expands! costing me a couple tubes...

    there are several other sealants out there...

    I think most people here patch em as the go flat...

    Make sure you are keeping the tires fully inflated. It seems that you get more flats with partially inflated tires. Maybe not, that is just what I see.

    You can try tire liners. A bunch of people have suggested I get them but I haven't had a puncture flat in a long time so I'm not going to do it.
