Do they make these for road bikes? Does anyone here use them? I used to ride them when I BMXed, and I recently thought about them after getting my 5th flat in a few hundred miles. I'm running 23c Michelin Speediums and I don't know if I'm just pushing it running such skinny tires (I'm 195 lbs).
Yes. I run a red Mr. Tuffy in the front and it fits fine on my 23 Vittoria. I haven't encountered any really nasty situations yet and I have no empirical evidence to suggest they do much of anything. But they're cheap and they might work.
Videogames ruined my life. Good thing i have 2 extra lives.

That setup is on my commuter CX bike for going through the bad part of East LA. It's one of those areas you really really really don't want to flat while it's dark and there's shattered auto glass and other nasty crap on the street... The weight doesn't bother me anymore and when i get back on my other bikes i fly.
