Yes! I just put Gatorskin 700x25 folding on one of my bikes and it took a little bit. But it is never that hard afterwards. Since they don't get many flats hopefully you won't have to test that!

You will burn more fat above this so-called fat burning zone, just not as high a percentage. If you search "fat burning zone" you will find many links where the "fat burning zone" is discredited.
