I too use the Pasela TGs with Mr. Tuffys. I hate commute flats. They are nice tires for the task, and pretty cheap, too.rusa1586 said:Big enough to be relatively flat proof, supple enough to go down the road nicely, quiet and lighter weight than most big tires. I put Mr Tuffy in for the winter because changing flats in cold weather sucks so bad.
I've been using Michelin Dynamics for a couple of years now. They're cheap, they ride well, they last well...what else do you need? 700cX25.cougaraug said:looking for something a little more flat resistant than the bontrager selects that came with the bike (and are almost worn out). Suggestions?
Ditto on the Top Touring... Great tire... Ride is *comfy*... Weight... well, I'm commuting so I try not to think about that. Flat protection is off the charts and is directly proportional to the weight. Lastly, great traction.ChuckUni said:Conti Top Touring 2000s. I used them around Philly for several years and a few thousand miles with NO flats beside one pinch flat that was my fault. They are heavy. They don't ride so well or roll that fast. But they last, stick well, and are seriously tough.
Min width is a 28c, so that could be a problem in a tight frame. It does allow for better unpaved rail trail and minor off roading.
I've seen and heard similar things about the Vittoria Randonneur. Of course, when you pull it down off the peg at the LBS it feels (and weighs) like it's made for a tank...firefox said:Flat protection is off the charts and is directly proportional to the weight. Lastly, great traction. ff
