    Jack Brown Blue Label tires.... ???????????

    [Just re-read: I meant the lighter Green Labels.] These 33mm's from Rivendell seem ideal (relatively light weight, lower pressure) for riding my favorite, poorly maintained, gravelly, crappy county roads-- maybe not during goathead season. Any experience with how often, being nonbelted, they flat? Bike feel riding on such "sausages"?

    I have long reach brakes and a classic fork so no problem fitting them.

    I put Continental CityRide, Puncture Resistant, 32mm's on my new Cannondale SuperX for riding in northern NM. They seem to ride just fine over all manner of crap roads, and climb great. Coming from 23's on my normal road bikes, yes, they do look a little sausagy, but the benefits far outweigh and visual issues or minor performance issues.
