Anyone used? Thinking about getting them for my commuter bike because I'm sick of punctures.
The solid foam ones? Really harsh to ride, a nightmare to fit, and tend to get flat spots. Get some Marathon Plus tyres instead.
+1 marathon plus
amazing tyres, never punctured yet with one after thousands of miles
[hopes, he hasn't tempted fate]
Are they the same as the Green Tyres that were around in the 90s? Like permanently riding through sand. As above get some decent puncture proof pneumatic tyres. I use spesh Nimbus. Can't remember the last puncture, it might have been 6 years ago when I found a massive nail in the tyre. Had to go to a bike shop as I'd long since given up carrying a pump and tube.
Hmm not a rave review then. I had heard they were not wonderful in terms of feeling every lump and bump in the road....
Yep, Marathon Plus.
The only good green tyres are/were the awesome Wildgripper range from Michelin back in the day!
another vote for spesh nimbus here. I can remember two flat tyres. One was a broken bottle that went in one sidewall and out the other. The second was when the sidewall of the rim blew out so not strictly a puncture anyway.
