    Hhaha yes flat tires suck.
    the only thing that sucks more then flat tires? Flat tire by hitting a pot hole with possibility of sidewall being ripped on brand new gatorskins in the pouring rain

    www.airfreetires.com is another site to consider. Not a plug just a note.

    Mr. Tuffys seem to have made mine pretty flat proof, went from 2-3 a month riding, to just the occasional user error when I'm not paying attention while swapping tires for diff. conditions.

    Ride on the rims, you'll never have a flat again. Let us know if any spoke shaped pieces of metal jab you in the arse.

    Get one of those middle of the road knobbie tire sets (like on wally's world bikes), cut it, and use it as a liner for a larger slick. Just about anything that gets through the slick just sits in the space between the slick and cut knobbie. I went from one 5 mile ride with three flats, to no flats for months with this idea from my friend's dad. Crr increases, but it's worth it if you have lots of glass/goat heads/etc...
