Greetings from The Inland Empire & YakiVegas
A new member, with a lot of miles on the frame, metaphorically.
Been cruising around on a 29-inch Ridgeback "comfort" bike. Somewhat of a present euphemism, since my "seat" needs some "breaking-in".
Dealing with puncture vines, aka "goatheads". I have 4 tubes for quick changes, but I surmise an investment in Slime products, tubes & liners, may be in order.
Can anyone speculate whether the kevlar liners are worth the additional expense?
Slime liners (polyurethane)are about five bucks, while the "Pana"-something kevlars are about $15.00-per-wheel, and I don't know whether they are long enough for the 29-inch tires.
Other than this environmental annoyance, we have a great trail system along the Yakima & Naches River confluence. Very scenic, but STAY ON THE PAVEMENT!!
