I guess they might stop some pinch flats but in my mind if you hit that rock at 45 mph that extra few millimeters of rubber isn't going to make much of a difference. The cost is only a few bucks more so there's not much down side there but they are huge and don't pack well at all, I find them harder to change and they are heavy... I guess that could be good for the gyroscope effect that helps to keep our bikes off the ground... I don't know I just have been thinking about this lately. If anyone's got an opinion on this I'd like to hear it.

I have run both and to be honest I haven't found any difference. I do think you have some advantages on the smaller bikes if you run low pressures in your tires. The heavy duty tubes will take a rock pounding better. On the big 950 I always run a heavy tube in the front. I have been in sand washed and rock sections and hit things and thought my front tire would blow. So far the heavy tubes have taken the pounding.

I would not carry or try to change a heavy tube out on the trail. They are a pain in the ass to work with. Way to big and heavy to pack. I normally let the shops install the heavy tubes

i had always ran heavy duty on my KLR and my pressure was at the lowest, 19 in the back and around 20 in the front.

now that i have a lighter bike with rimlocks, i will go lower.

Javier told me to run regular tubes, so i will try that. if i get a lot of flats, i will go back to heavy duty.

as far as carrying tubes in your pack, ALWAYS carry regular. heavy duty are too big and heavy for the pack and they are a pain in the ass on the trail to stuff in the rims.

YMMV

yeah, they did "ball up" cuz of the friction on the pavement.

i had one flat on the KLR because of this "balling up" on the tube. bummer.

I've had several shop mechanics tell me they change as many flats with heavy duty tubes as standard. That being said, I'm running an extra heavy duty in my trials tire. Can you say 5 psi !
I have 43 trips to Rowher since Nov.2009. Those of you who ride with me know I ride my tires bald with very low tire pressure. I've had 1 flat in all those rides. If the rocks are exposed, there is no excuse for pinch flats. The problem is your riding style. Hidden obstacles under the sand is a different story.

Lots of choices and no experience with the area.
Any help would be appreciated.

jeff, we did this route a few times and hopefully someone saved his tracks.

you're right, cleghorn to silverwood you can't get lost. when do you plan on going. if no one has the gps route or tracks, i can put together a direction.

Hi Joel

I need to clarify.... I do not need any d606s at this time.. (received one from bikebandit last week)..

I could use a d908 front tire 90/90-21 if the price is right.... needs to come in around $75.
