    Bontrager aw3 tires?

    I am thinking about trying these all weather tires this winter. They are heavy, but for winter training I want no flats and good grip. Clinchers, and I weigh 150 lbs. any comments on these tires?

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    They're good. More durable and have more flat protection than the R3. NOT the most durable/flat resistant tire out there. Notice I'm not saying 'flat proof' as there is no such thing. I'd recommend Conti Gator Hardshell if you want the best chance of not getting punctures.

    and a bunch of skateboards

    Solid rubber? Foam filled? Those flexi-plastic thingies? There's nothing new under the sun
