Rugged Tires for my Speed Uno
Hi all! I have been enjoying my Speed Uno over here in Kuwait, but I have hit a snag.
While riding today, my front tire hit a small ledge (was riding over some raised concrete approximately 1/2" off the ground) and it popped. So my question to you guys is, what kind of tires should I get to help prevent such things from happening again.
My requirements are:
- Needs to be able to handle going over bumps and ledges like the afformentioned 1/2"
- Would like a tire that handles better in thicker sand/gravel
- If possible, I would like to get a hold on some hub dynamo equipped rims
Thank again everyone!
EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention this. My rear tire has a aluminum bracket for what I assume is a rear derailleur. Problem is, when I use the coaster brakes, the bracket turns and lodges itself inbetween the bike frame and tire. For now I have been light on the brakes, as the bracket is not in the way of the tire, but is it possible to remove that bracket without hindering the setup of the rear hub?
