Ok my fellow clydes and athenas hows it going? Went for a nice 7-8 mile ride today and found a nice park I didnt know about with some nice bbqs, picnic tables, and coverings? Ok ok back on topic. Well on the way back from this nice ride I cross the street and stop wanting to just check on my tires. Lo and behold I have 3 big and nasty goatheads in my rear tire and 4 in my front At least 2 went in far enough to puncture my rear tire and Im guessing at least 1 punctured the front too! What is the strongest most d@mned goathead-proof tire out there? I dont mind if its heavy, rolls slow, or even looks kind of funny, or all of the above just need a way not to use up a patch kit on a single ride. Even thinking about buying those inserts between the tire and tube though Im not sure about those at my weight but I am willing. Thanks for any help all! Oh and who would you all say makes really good patches? Right now using park tools glueless and thinking about ordering some rema patchs too.
edit: Argh this is so annoying. Hopefully Im wrong and its just 2 in the back and 1 in the front otherwise Ill have run out of patches for now and cant ride until I pick some up. Murphy's Law strikes! Before didnt have a patch kit was getting back into riding not a single thorn,goathead, or piece of glass. Get kit a few days later big(more than a 1/4" maybe 1/2" long thorn) goathead then this.
