Already got a flat on the rear tire, a slice about 3/8ths of an inch long. I patched the tube but don't trust the tire to last much longer with the slit in it. I'm Having a hard time finding a replacement. Looking for a 24*2.0 inch slick with inverted tread, strong puncture resistant bead, and low rolling resistance for city riding. Something very much like the hookworms that I can't find in this size. The tioga power blocks look good but I have read are very weak for city riding same with most of the bmx race tires.
Well i for one am guilty of assuming that if something cost more its better. My front tire went flat parked from a hole in the tube seam. I may have judged my tires unfairly. The cut is from an oyster shell which can cut anything and it barely went through the bead. Going to first try replacing the cheap paper thin tubes.auraslip wrote:CST cyclops are the older version of the maxxis hookworks. Maxxis and CST are the same companies. I have about 5 of them. Some with up to 10,000 miles on them. Great tire for $15. Yes they come in 24". I just got a 24" pair for $30 from my LBS.
I still haven't been able to figure out why hookworms cost so much more. Dual ply or something? I dunnu. You can't argue with 10,000 miles and no flats though.
