Any time I start wondering if it's been long enough, it's been long enough.

I flatted at mile zero of my first 200K of 2012, and kept flatting through the event until I ran out of tubes and patch...

I'm a longtime user and big fan of the 20" Marathon Plus. I have a pair on my NYC commuting folder.
