Just moved to Tucson AZ
I moved about 4 weeks ago and have been doing a lot of riding with a roadbike cycle club so we ride a what appears fairly clean roads. I have been using Big Apple tires (65 PSI) but I have gotten so far 3 flats (in my rear tire ) due to what appears to be very small needle like thorns so I am a bit dissapointed in the BAs with Kevlar protection. I temporarily remounted the Marathon Plus on the rear wheel. I would prefer the BA instead.
I was thinking of using slime tire liners with my BAs? Will they help prevent flats from these thorns and what would they do the plush ride the BAs have?
Thanks for any advice.
