    well, that's kind of the point. power doesn't matter in a TT -- time does. people throw out power #s , esp of others, because it is fun.

    a) doesn't your shop give you a deal?

    guess i don't get that. i get them for $8.50/tube.....and you've said the gators never flat for you.....so if they improve the ride a tad, maybe worth it?

    my experience is that anything that will puncture one tire will basically puncture any other that i would WANT TO ride...but some do wear longer, and higher wear is when *i* start to get flats.

    totally understand. that is annoying and interferes with training, too.

    that sucks. would sealant in your tubes help? tubeless?

    tubeless (road) is a solution to a problem i don't have, but if i lived where goatheads were a thing, i'd be on them like flies on $hit.

    quick question--have a situation where a pioneer or SRM (shimano) will come my way. in order to view the metrics from pioneer, one NEEDS the pioneer head unit, right?
