    there are many longer lasting tires to be found

    I just bought another one from the old local bicycle shop

    remember -- for something a lot better -- going to be some extra money...

    Interesting. Thanks Sparky. I'm running Schwalbe Big Apple tires, and the rear one has worn faster than I expected (I try not to smoke it too often). Maybe I will try the Ubdertaker. It looks to have good tread.

    I'd imagine the Undertaker to go at least 3,000 miles... prolly closer to 5,000, tho.

    The tire liners are more impressive to me, tho. Riding with a nail, stuck in a pneumatic tire, and it doesn't bother me one bit to ride 20 miles away from home.

    I'm a believer in tire liners. I use Mr.Tuffies in all tires on all my bikes. (Weirdly, my last flat was from a tire liner pinching a tube. Freak ocurrence IMO. It happened at the end of my 33 mile commute, just as I pulled into the parking lot at the shop.)
