Pinch flat at speed

On fancy-ass worn-down Grifo tires. Thankfully it was the rear that blew out.

Interesting. About 7 months on those, right? How many miles?

I was trying to figure that out earlier this week. I think around 500 miles. These are CX race tires -- "event tires." They are for specific CX conditions and if used as such, would last a few seasons.

But I love them for commuting and trail riding. In the end, though, they're just too fragile for daily driving. And I don't hold that against them.

I probably get another pair and use them for events in the future: Midnight Century for one. And the odd long/all day nat'l forest ride.

Are those the new Shimano CX70 cantilevers? How do you like them?
