I've started commuting on my Voyageur with newish standard pasela wire-bead tires. I really, really like the ride these give. I accept that they will flat me more often than say a Schwalbe Marathon in 27" might. I have those tires in 700c (previously they were on my hybrid commuter, and will be going on my Peugeot with new wheels for commuting duty). While they are solid and dependable, they don't have the feel that the pasela does.

I had a flat last week. The street cleaners were about, and I think they spit some glass into the bike lanes. I have the sticky patches, but need the glue ones. The non-glue sticker patches don't seem to hold very long.
