    Yeah, whatever. I just got a 25 and a 28 directly from Schwalbe. Screw waiting until mid June for those ThickSlicks I ordered.

    From what I've read, the Durano Plus seems like a pretty kick ass (albeit expensive) tire. I've always thought the regular Duranos were pretty good and it's awesome that Schwalbe made a more flat-resistant version. Also stoked that it comes in 28. I'll report back once I get some miles on them.

    i am also a break free fixed gear rider with some experience. i personally love the thickslick tires. they are durable thick and pretty puncture resistant. they have no tread on them which makes it far easier to make those last minute skids to slow down or stop. has helped me in more then one close call. but yes in reality brakes are the smartest even though i don't use them i still recommend them.

    I installed some Fyxation Session 700 tires last week and put about 60 miles on them so far. My route consists of new/old pavement, gravel, mud and some light off road trails without any issues. I should note that I don’t skid stop really at all and rely mostly on brakes.

    It comes off very easily with nail polish remover.

    Also, I hate ThickSlicks.

    I know this might make me a weenie, but I got a really good deal on some Specialized Roubaix pro tires, 25/28's, and I've been using these for a few months and not a single flat thus far and they ride amazingly.

    my vittoria randos have the double shielding in them. once you wear the initial thread down the red strip shows through. not sure if that is the point, or just happenstance but maybe that helps...

    also, im thinking of going back to gatorskins from the rando, but the skid on the rando is WAY more forgiving and smooth. helps in a pinch for sure. only problem is, gators last a heck of a lot longer. any solid panaracer suggestions? besides tserv?

    Got probably a thousand miles on mine and they still have plenty left. You won't be disappointed.

    Welcome to the neighborhood!

    You seem to be heavy into skidding. Get a Soma Everwear. It was the longest lasting tire I found when skidding. Comes in 23/26/28/32mm and made by panaracer

    +1 best rear tire for skidding. Material is just the right amount of suppleness to make for nice smooth skids.
    However there's some trade offs with weight due to extra rubber for skids and the tendency of them to become squared as they are worn down.

    I am 61 so I think it might be hard for me to learn how to skid to a stop, but the main reason I dont even try is I cant afford to replace tires every week lol,,,so I run a brake

    Assuming you do learn how to skid, you won't blast through tires in a week. I'm on the same set of tires that I had a year and a half ago now. I've only been skidding to stop for about half that time though and I never do those long tire-eating skids.

    When I first got into riding years ago we'd go skid for hours on end. I was eating through an everwear a month. I quickly learned that was an expensive habit.

    Have about 300 miles on a set of thick slick city elites and they have been great so far. Heavy as all hell but no flats which is great considering my pothole filled and glass littered commute to and from work.
