After 2000 miles in Colorado without a flat I only had to commute for about a month in the Tri-Cities to get my first flat tire.
I have been really impressed with the puncture-resistant Kenda K-841 tires on my Buzz V. I would often add a little off-road while commuting on my bike in Denver, but here in Eastern Washington the offending tack-weed (aka goat heads, puncture weed and others) was on the bike lane.
I'm afraid I disposed of the thorn without getting a picture, but I'm sure I will have more opportunities commuting in the Tri-Cities.
I will be adding puncture resistant tubes or "slime" to my tubes adding to the over-all puncture resistance.
Thanks Novara for putting those Kenda tires on the Buzz V. 2000+ miles without a flat is pretty good.
