@Ged117, you should find the Paselas quite good for commuting. I've ridden on them with good results.

My speed bikes tend to have Veloflex Master (a clincher) or Veloflex Criteriums (a sewup). I had another flat today. Stan took care of it in a minute or less. Less time than I spent pumping, and it didn't lose all that much air.

Addendum: I need to get some more patches. I have half a dozen little tubes of patch glue, some unopened, but I run out of patches when commuting on clinchers.
