4 punctures in 3 weeks. Is it a coincidence that its always the same tyre? I have the KHE street on the back and now I cant go one day of riding without the tyre becoming totally flat once i get home. I have odyssey rim strips and am thinking that maybe I should find a new tyre. :(

have you identified what caused the puncher each time and removed it? or is it still in the wheel/ tyre causing more punchers?

damn, i beat the heck out of mine!
I ride a street in the rear and a park in front and i whale on them.
I hang up bad sometimes when i blast the hip and the only time i got a flat so far was becuase i was an idiot and forgot to put my rim strip in:lol:

Do you run a min of 90psi? If not it says to do so right on there site.

A problem I had with my tire getting flat was the the vavle wasn't in tight wenough so air would seep through over night and I'd think I would have a flat tire but I pumped it up and it was fine.

What kinda punctures are you getting? Normal, little hole ones, or "snake bite" type ones? You can help prevent the latter by putting some talc on the tube before you put it back in the tire.

It could be your rim.

You have always got to see what it is every time, otherwise the same stuff is going to keep happening.

What PSI do you run it at?

I am hoping that when I get my Kevlar Rubens that they are a little more durable.

Im sure they will be since they will be about 10 oz heavier lol. the kevlar rubens are only going to be one ounce lighter than the normal ones

i could be your tire or rim, also check if your rim tape has moved that happened to me and my tire was constantly getting punctures

I got the Street version front and back..

And ive never had a single puncture... never

And ive been riding trough glass..

if you keep the pressure up ( 7-9 bar ) you wont get punktures

If you do that... you will be able to reli on them
