If I were Joerg, I'd be after steel belted tires. I'll settle for a
flat once every couple years.
(it actaully took half a block to go flat, I could hear something
hitting the chain stay, but couldn't figure it out. The 'pssst' gave
it away a few seconds later.)


Tank tracks. If the bicycle manufacturers only understood how to build bikes,

they would spec them with tank tracks. This one little company got it
right. https://lunacycle.com/luna-m1-tank-t...onversion-kit/ I've
been doing that on my own for years -- with a solid rubber front tire.
If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself. It's just like
making beer. Did I mention I make beer? Did I mention mountain lions?
Scared cows? God-fearing country-folk? Hors categorie gnar?

On the other hand, if the tire (or the beer) didn't go flat, the
mounting lions didn't mount, or the cows weren't frightened there
wouldn't be anything to talk about.
