Tires.

I love my Ogre, it has been a pleasure to ride.  It is a touch on the heavy side to carry it up the flight of stairs to my office, but the feel and durability pay off on the harsh streets.  I recently purchased some Specialized Borough XC 700 x 45c tires.




 As far as a multi-use tire goes they are nice, low rolling resistance, a little traction for dirt, and the width helps prevent falling into the seams between the concrete sections of road.  My only concern is a lack of puncture resistance, though I have not had an issue yet.    

Ideally, I would like to get some Schwalbe Dureme 700 x 50c but at $90 a tire, I would have to sell a kidney.  Maybe someday when I am rich!
