Well, shoot, I knew the Pasela TG's aren't a real heavy duty puncture resistant tire, but I was hoping they'd roll over the usual assortment of small brads, staples, and glass on the streets without puncturing. But I pulled my bike out last week to ride to work, and felt that funny loose feeling and discovered the back tire was flat. The culprit? A staple, one of these pointy T50 style staples, about 3/8" (10mm) size.
I usually ride a foot or two from the curb for better visibility and less debris in my path, but this staple must not have had time to migrate over to the curb. I swear, sometimes I think people in Spokane must toss nails, screws and staples out their truck windows like they're tossing candy in a parade.
Otherwise, these Paselas ride smooth and fast. Guess you can't have everything.
Friday night, and I'm blogging and watching American Pickers. It's a wild, wild, life!
