I can say truthfully though, in 50+ years I've never had a sidewall puncture. I've never really understood how people achieve those on the road.
I pulled over to take a leak and my tire rubbed the curb for a second as i came to a stop. POP! I've been curious about Compass tires for a long time now. I was tempted to buy a pair in preparation for both of my randonneur rides but I never went through with it. It's hard to put that kind of cash out when I have access to wholesale prices for Paselas.
