i commute 26 miles round trip. I own a trek mountain bike and a carbon giant road bike. I only use the mountain bike for the commutes because i have to carry a bunch of crap, and the road conditions suck. I even have to ride on the sidewalk for about a mile or so. So.... the question... for the last 6 months i have been using continental town and country tires.. these tires offer a smooth slick like drive, and are big, fat, and thick, and heavy so naturally puncture resistant. the biggest flat maker around here is glass on the road. there is glass everywhere.... and my drive home at night is in the dark. Well, it is time to replace the tires, and i am wondering if there is a slimmer, lighter, more long distance tire out there that i should consider instead of another round of the town and countries. does one exist that would give me the same pucture resistance as the town and country? It is a fairly long commmute to have 1.95" tires. i also will take a long night ride every week or two at night.. these rides are 30+ miles. Again, i don't like to ride the road bike at night... road conditions will destroy it when i can't see upcoming obsicles very well. Keep in mind i am 6'3'' and weigh 260.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
