I ride a lot of desert trails in Arizona and have not had a single flat while riding on thorn proof tubes, yet anyway! The cactus hazard can be brutal! But I recently changed tires to Maxxix High Rollers and these babies are heavy! For the first time I am considering going back to regular tubes to offset the weight. Don't get me wrong, I am not a weight weenie, but I really liked my bike when it was lighter.
What are everyones views on weight saings vs. a good sturdy tube?
