I live in goathead country. My flats caused by those little buggers came almost nil when I started using Conti Gatorskins. Goathead season should be over. Usually problems in the late summer/early fall.

I tried Mr. Tuffy tire liners and I still got flats. Thorns came into side of tire that is not protected by liners.


Please for the love of all things that are good and pure (and also in the name of Crr), do NOT ride Gatorskins. Literally the worst possible tire choice in terms of rolling resistance (and they ride like bricks, too).

Think guerrilla warfare in the 3rd world.  The "rolling resistance".

I use foldable Gatorskins with regular tubes, and no sealant on my road bike. I use Armadillos with with regular tubes an sealant on my mountain bike. It sucks, but I really don't know what else to do, living in the land of goat heads. I remember my first set of tubulars when that's what real riders rode, and how much better they were than any clincher, let alone horrible tires like the ones I use now. But, really, unless I want to change flats constantly....
