Has anybody ever tried the solid core tires? I don't know if that is the name for them but they won't go flat. Just wondering how they would hold up to the heat of highway riding but I would buy them for a dirt trip I am thinking about.

Has anyone ever done the transamerica trail?

Isn't that what were used in the teens & twenty's before "balloon" tires came out?
I don't think I want to go back to them. Especially in the dirt. OUCH!!

Good luck.

The rumor is... that current technology has gotten to the stage that they can make tires that don't need air, perform like air tires, and the tread will last 200,000 miles.. But the price would be astronomical and the tire manufacturers would lose money it the long run.. so they don't make em'.
