    Well, I just got done cutting a new section of trials behind my house and there are alot of briars laying around. Over the past 3 rides ive had 3 flats. Is there anything I can do to help prevent flats? Are there thicker tubes out there that are "flat resistant" or a somthing? :confused:

    what tire are you running? if its a thin xc tire maybe something thicker could make a difference. they make "thornproof" tubes as well. they're just a thicker tube basically, I run those in the rear on my xc bike.

    Thanks for that. I got some sealant filled tubes, and so far so good.
