Howdy from CA
I'm Scott from wild and crazy California. I've been cycling for five years now and have lurked here a few times.
Figured it was time to become a member.
By some miracle, I've got somewhere around 11,000 miles ridden, and last Thursday I had my first solo riding flat. After fighting my Gatorskin Hardshells on that ride, I think I need to switch tires to some that aren't so hard to take on and put on my rims without fear of pinching the tube. I love the tires and can't say how many times I've gone through glass without incident, but it sucked replacing a tube in the wild.
Any suggestions on tough tires with a softer sidewall?
Thanks, and thanks for letting me in on this forum!
