I am so @\#$ing sick of flat tyres! I’ve thrown out 5 $95 tyres over the last six weeks, ruined a race and spent SO long cleaning Stan Race Day off of my 2 bikes! I’ve been running 2.6” tyres from 800 grams to 1200 grams and they all get slashed. Both on the side wall and on the tread. Plugs sometimes help but only until the next hole.  I ride in the centre of Australia. Hard pack trails with lots of sharp rocks. I don’t think that I’ve EVER worn out a rear tyre. But that’s ok, I can live with that but the flat streak that I’m currently on is going to cause me to loose it! Ive just ordered a set of Huck Norris but know that they will only help with pinches. Everyone gets the odd flat tyre around here but it’s getting to a point that my mates don’t even comment as they wait for me to shove in another tube and wipe as much white Stans off my pants as I can before we get to the bar! (Always an awkward look).  Help me!
