ChrisButch I'm interested that you had the same problems on your Thorn Audax. Did you talk to Thorn about it? What tyres do you use now? I am considering Ultra Gatorskins or All condition Armadillos at the moment.
I didn't, as the tyres weren't supplied by Thorn - I bought the bike as frame+groupset only, without wheels. So I don't think there's any significance, just a coincidence. Since my repeated problems with Paselas (they were both 23s and 25s, incidentally) , i've switched to Spec. Armadillos on this bike, without further problems. Most of my riding on this bike is done on very rough local lanes (it's now been relegated to my hack bike), so sidewalls do need to be robust.
