I'd gotten a couple flats on the Pasela Tourguards that are on my blue Redline shortly after I got them. It bummed me out because I really like how the tires ride. Last week my wife came back from a ride and reported she pulled a tack out of one and didn't flat. Maybe the tires just needed to age a bit. Or maybe she is on better terms with the Almighty Flat gods than I am. I looked down at the truck tire and there was a nail sticking out of the sidewall. She'd picked it up in a parking lot somehow, and made it home safely.
I've been riding the Redline to work the last few days as my Vaya is in the shop for a pre-long-ride tuneup. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
