I ride to work approx 24 miles a day from north to south Liverpool. I use the old railway line which has been converted/ tarmaced into a cycle path known affectionately as the 'raller' by the kids I teach.
Now the problem - the path is used as a pub, toilet, stolen car repository, mini moto track and bed by the local yoofs etc along pretty much its whole length and as such gathers a fair amount of glass and debris. I've suffered punctures long enough, sometimes as many as 5 a day, and want a solution!
Tyres I've tried so far,
Specialized armadillos (3 sorts different sizes) - the best but a record 3 punctures in one day
Continental gatorskins - rubbish! The 5 in a day tyre!
Is there a response to the 'raller's destructive power? I want to ride one day laughing in its face, pulling wheelies through burnt out mopeds, I want to skid through smashed becks bottles with impunity....(I think the punctures may have addled my brain!)
