I need your help with a tire problem. But first let me provide some facts.
Much of my usual ride of about 25 miles is through what I consider less than desirable areas. Part is on roads and part is on a "bike path". Unfortunately most of the bike path goes through these areas. For some reason the people who live near or drive on the road that runs beside the bike path find it necessary to break their beer, wine, and coke bottles on the bike path. Some parts of it look like a war zone there is so much glass. :irritated
Now the tire question with a little background. My old bike has Continental Ultra 2000 tires. Last year I had a total of 4 flats with these tires along the bike path. My new bike (I've had it less than 2 months) has Michelin Axial Pros. I don't race - they came on the bike. I've had 2 flats in less than a week.
Is this just a run of bad luck or are Michelin tires designed for roads without the usual glass, metal fragments, and potholes? Their website didn't give much info.
Can you offer any suggestions or another brand that you have found to be more resistant to flats?
Thanks for your help.
