I notice a lot of people seem to be quick to change tyres after what appears to me to be a couple incidents of unfortunate punctures. I think riders should seriously look at what has punctured their tyres and think "would another brand seriously have stopped this puncture?"

I stuck with Continental GP4000s for a long time as the consensus was they were the best. When I decided to try other brands and tyres I've played the field as is my right as a consumer to try a wide variety of products. Especially if I want to make an informed descision.
I know what causes the majority of my punctures and I don't seek out broken glass to ride through. If I'm not entirely pleased with a tyre's performance - life span, ride characteristics and puncture resistance, then I move on to the next candidate.
There's lots of products out there and I'm quite prepared to find the one that I believe meets my requirements best.
Schwalbe Durano Plus is looking pretty good at the moment.
Cheers,
