    New (and better) Tire & Chain Cover recommendations for Citizen Bike Gotham2

    The bike has 20" tires and no chain cover. Anyone want to recommend some upgraded tires and a good chain cover for the bike?

    Got a flat tire in the 1st week of use, so I'm thinking it's better to just go ahead and replace both. As for the chain cover, no issues with chain markings yet, but wanting to keep my clothes grease-free as long as possible.

    Check the rim tape. Schwable Marathon Racers. Dahon has come out with a chain cover directly on the chain. It is on this page about a third of the way down http://www.thorusa.com/dahon/accessories/biologic.htm

    Not to be rude, but just want to make sure that chain cover fit the Gotham 2? Hard to install?

    It should fit any chain but to be sure call Thor first and make sure with him.

    In my experience you can't blame the tyres for punctures. Replacing new ones with other ones is futile if you are interested in getting no punctures. I have gotten punctures on every single tyre type I have tried, even the vaunted Marathon Plus.
