Unless he changed that tire since the last Granville's ride, WF had nearly worn that one down to the cords. Most folks change tires before they get that worn down :lol2:
WF is definitely not normal :jack:

Talk to wingfixer about no flats with tubliss

there should be a disclaimer here. IIRC, Wingfixer is a certified tire tester. He is a master of getting flats either riding, or whilst changing tires. :hi5:

You can still get flats, just no "pinch flats"

I'm hoping to have a tublis and 505 cheater installed on the rear for Mt Ridge. Looking forward to trying it!

In my (partial) defense, that was Joker's handy work! :lol2: Yes, I was on the trail about 10 minutes after that picture was taken, I had to get dressed too though. :deal: With that repair the rear received its ninth, tenth and eleventh sticky rope. The rear had also lost its ability to turn so I had to admit it was finally worn out (even though it was still holding air when I removed it). I did get 1000+ miles of some pretty harsh riding out of it and I just got done replacing it with another Equilibrium. I also replaced the front with one of those Goldentyre things. The hole, while holding air, was substantial enough I was afraid the plug(s) would fall out.
F*** work.

I'm running the Goldentyre 216aa fatty front, which is the only one I will run as long as I can get them.
On the rear I'm running the goldentyre 523KX which is a gummy tire but the non fim version with better lug spacing and taller lugs, so it picks up where the shorter lug 523x leaves off.. it works amazingly well on everything I have ridden from rocky, rooty stuff, to flat grass, hard pack and mud.. I bought a spare almost immediately and will probably grab another soon.. the feel is amazing on this thing. I've felt other rears where all or nothing without much feedback before breaking loose .. this thing inspires a whole lot of confidence
