    Is there such thing as a puncture resistant tire and/or tube???

    Is there such thing as a puncture resistant tire and/or tube??? if there is i want them.
    I've been riding a Surly SS with 700c cyclocross tires on city streets. I've had 4 flats due to punctures
    in the last 3 months. I'm pretty careful to avoid glass and debris when possible. Are cyclocross tires
    just not tough enough for daily street riding?

    Continental Gatorskins.

    Do a search, many here favour those or the Armadillos.

    Ode to the after work nap ( ride your bike instead)

    Ode to the nap
    The evil, evil nap
    It lures
    you succumb
    But only with good intent
    Shortly I will rise
    But you do not.
    Do not succumb
    To the evil, evil nap

    and just to muck things up I'll throw in Panaracer paselas/tourguard, or Panaracer t-serv's (bascially a tourguard with kevlar beads for weight and folding.) I use both right now and am very happy with the performance/cost ratio.

    I have Panaracer T-serv's on my winter bike, and no flats in a year of riding.
    I have a Conti GP 4 Season on the front of my regular bike and an Armadillo on the back.
    I've had two flats with my Armadillos, but I don't fault them.

    I like thornproof tubes in addition to my kevlar belted tires. I have had good luck with the T-Servs on my fixed gear and the Pasela TGs on my touring bike.

    Penny farthings used a solid piece of rubber around the rim, pinned at the junction. Garunteed flat-proof.

    Conti Gatorskins, no problems so far and I ride everywhere (no car). The other day I was at an intersection for a left turn and picked a piece of glass out of my front tire, pointy little thing, may have caused a flat in some other tire. So far I'm really happy with these tires and I use them on both bikes.

    To continue to muck things up, I'll point out that my 26" paselas flatted if a thorn so much as looked at them.

    I use a bontager race lite hard case with 3x puncture protection (whatever the **** that means) on the rear, never had a flat with about 2,200 miles of normal to dirty riding (lots of thorns also).

    rubber is overrated.
    wrap duct tape around the rim several times.
    no flats.
