The Tire That Keeps Going

I Have Schwalbe Big Apple Tires on my bike. They where installed used before the trip. I do not know the orginal mile, but they had some wear. At the begining of the trip I got some flats, about 6. Some were from glass and made small cuts. Half way down Baja Franklin gave me a tire liner, because he was starting to worry. I have faith in the tire, positive thinking. I had about 3 more flats after the tire liner. I used this tire because of its comfort and the weight I was carrying. I really enjoyed it.

I used this tire on my Pedal Power Generator bike, on the pleasent revolotion. My Bike is a Surly 1X1 with an Xtracycle Freeradicle wieghing 15o lbs. fully loaded. 60 shows later and 3000 miles. it filely gave out, or rather I gave up it. With a tire liner the tube is still holding together. But on my way into mexico city, I was afaid of losing it on the freeway. so i switched it. This has got to be one of the best tires. Even with cut in the tire it still held together with a 150 lb. load over the dir roads of mexico. I first got the cut from glass out side Santa Cruz. I continued to ride fully loaded all the way down the coast to the tip of Baja. Then in road over the mountains of Mexico to Mexico City.
