Afraid so. I figured that I was getting a flat on average every 30 miles on my trike with the Scorchers. Trying Kojacs now. They don't look much more durable but I do like to go fast so I'm giving them a try.
Sorry for the late reply. The answer is simple: New York City. My commute to work takes me through Harlem and Washington Heights, where lots of folks like to party and smash bottles on the bike path. I counted 5 smashed bottles on my way out of the city this weekend. The glass gets picked up by other commuters and spread all over the place. I switched to Brompton greens and love them so far. (Knock on wood.)
The Scorchers did seem scorching, but I don't have a power meter, so I'll never know. I do know that they significantly increased my journey time to work with all of those flats!
