Have you priced those Schwalbes? I was having a great leafy singletrack ride yesterday when the rear Nobby Nic blew a hole in the sidewall. Had to hike the bike out of the woods due to only having one Co2 cartridge in the Camelback. Lesson learned. No more overpriced, paper thin, Schwalbes for me.
I did set a new (low) record though, with a blistering 3.1 mph avg speed while walking the bike back to the parking lot.
