I Ride a Terry road bike and I put over five thousand miles a year on my bike. I live in Colorado, so my cycling is very unique. I climb mountains, ride flats, rolling hills, valleys and LOVE every minute of it! I get the traction I need all year 'round, even when wet winter roads have chosen to become my riding adventure that day. 'Colorado Weather' is called 'Colorado Weather' because it is just that, rain-snow-sunshine-wind-calm, at times, all in the same day, so Wonderful! I change out this tire twice a year, at the most three times. I ride them hard and long and yet they are faithful. Goat heads are a drag for everyone, no matter what tire you have chosen. I put a liner in both of mine for added protection, and it works just fine. When I do get a flat, no big deal, tire comes off and on my rim easily, not too tight. By the way this tire goes on my front wheel. Hey Enjoy all the Fun on your riding adventure, this tire will take you beyond your limits!
Have A Happy Day!
Been using this tire for years simply because there is no other choice. However when inflating over 100, the tire plies tend to fail and the rubber is a soft and prone to cuts. I get about 800 miles on the tire. Would be happy to pay more for a better tire.
My 8-year-old has started racing cyclocross this year but also loves road riding. After a futile search for good 24-inch rims, I decided to just change tires between jaunts. These tires worked perfectly.
I have two sets of wheels for my Vision Saber R65 highboy recumbent - I use these Pasela's for FR on my training set. Fast, comfortable and tough - only had one blowout in over 4yrs of ridingtraining. Easy to modulate ride quality between 95psi and 115psi with relatively little speed loss - helps when I know I'm hitting a new, worse paved route. A deal for the price, especially in this size.
About the best tire that fits an Airnimal Chameleon. Used these tires on long distance fully loaded touring as they are durable with reasonable puncture resistance.
Good grip on sealed and loose surfaces.
I just wish that some other manufacturers would make this size to give a bit more choice to Airnimal owners.
