Finally after a year of commuting I had a flat. Luckily it was in the weekend so I sat on the couch and tried to change it....45 minutes later I had managed to get the tire off the rim and back on. That would not work in the morning, in the dark, on the side of the road on my way to work... So, I guess I am going to be looking for a new set of tires.
These are Vittiria "randonneur cross" and they have a very minimal tread. What are some brands that would be / are known for being slightly easier to mount.? My rim is 700C 622X14C If given my druthers I would like a slick.
The bike is a CAADX and has pretty good clearance between the tire and the brake mechanism and frame.c
