Hi,

Welcome aboard! What sort of bike do you commute on? My MTB is big slow and heavy, but I do appreciate the thicked tread on the tyres whenever I encounter broken glass I can't avoid :)

I've got a Felt 7.1FX Ebay special for a few hundred bucks. 700x23 tyres so fast and puncture free up till last week. I need to get to work on time so two flats at the same time had the old heart rate up. Also got bloody filthy changing over. Earned my beer that night.
