What is the general opinion around here about those all rubber/no intertube tires I saw a few years ago? If you know what I'm talking about or don't know it's those with a solid construction, absolutely nothing but think rubber all the way thru.
Solid rubber tires are garbage. Higher rolling resistance, sloggy performance, etc. Stick with tubed tires, and you'll be fine.
