So I bought a Swalbe Racing Ralph and put it on my front wheel and on the first ride managed to slit the side wall by about 2cm and puncture. I managed to patch it and went for another ride yesterday and managed to slit the side wall again, in a different place!
Ok I knew then I forked out way more than a tyre should cost that these had thin side walls which I only confirmed when they arrived and I fitted them but even then this is ridiculous!
I wasnt riding anything particularly rocky and I was in the Oxfordshire and Warwickshire area! They were at about 30-40psi and I weigh about 100kg with pack.
Now Im looking for a tyre that rides in a similar way as besides the crazy thin side walls I liked the good level of grip especially the side ridges and fast rolling. Any suggestions?
