Flat Rant

My string of flats keeps growing: Early August--sidewall cut; early September, after 4 weeks without the bike--rim strip problem; mid September--snakebite; yesterday--a piece of glass. I've given up believing I can ride very far without fixing a flat.

Four flats, four different causes. That is bad luck. On the other hand, How 'bout those Rams today?

What kind of tires?
How bout some specialized armadillos with a tire liner with that squishy stuff in your tube?
Maybe a plow in front of your bike.
