Dutch Bakfiets, I've wanted one for a while, about 2 weeks ago a neighbor was selling one at a price I couldn't resist. It's awesome, although quite a departure from my roadbikes. I'll see if I...

Hi Rootman,

Schwalbe's most durable, puncture resistant tire (Marathon Plus) in a 26 x 1.75 (widest version of this tire) weighs 980 gr., a standard duty tube weighs 190 gr., so the combo weighs...

Precisely....^^^^^^^

Especially the 2nd statement.

Maybe let the air out of all 4 tires on his car and then say, "I thought it'd be funny".

We have one car, and my wife uses it, so I ride or I could take the bus. For the bus I'd have to walk 2 blocks (in the rain to get there), and about 6 or 7 blocks to the office when I got off, in...

What kind of tubes are you using? Cheap tubes aren't reinforced at the base of the valve, good tubes are.

I read through rather quickly, have you determined that the hole in the tube is on the inner (rim) side, or on the outer (rolling) side? Someone mentioned using a cotton ball, this is my favorite...

Universal Cycles price on this tire is $60. Factor in your 15% discount and it's down to $51. Still above your $45 ceiling, but getting close.
