Spare tire just to get you home?
I finally got these schwalbe tires on my 29er rims and they were so tight I had to use two wood clamps to assist me, along with two tire levers, one of which is now bent from all the stress. I seriously thought the things were not going on, but in the end they did.
So if I shred one of these tires way out in the middle of nowhere, I realize I am going to need a spare tire that can at least get me off the trail and home. The tire should first and foremost be easy to mount and secondly be very light as in, I don't even care about knobby tread, just something light weight and foldable. THis will be only for emergencies. Something light I can pack easily.
