    I ordered another of the same one, since overall they ride well. But I am interested in changing them out, since I have had some leakage issues as well.
    Not much in the way of tread, but I like Rene Herse tires (formerly Compass). I've used the standard casing Barlow Passes (38mm width) and they've been great. hozn is a fan as well.

    Add me to the list of owners of issue-laden Riddlers. I still have a 37 on the rear of one bike, but had to take off and ditch the 43 on the front tire because it wobbled so bad.

    Did you use them tubeless?

    Yup, never with tubes. Was going to link you to this thread, but then realized you started it . I've also enjoyed the G-One all-arounds (38mm) for a little more grip cornering, but still not bad on pavement.

    There's also a lot on this thread (not sure if you've posted on it).

    (sorry for continuing the thread hijacking)

They claim it might just be a "bad batch" since the front tire and failed rear one were bought together. I'm not happy though.
    Dang, that sucks. Itís worth keeping the bad tire. There should be a serial number/lot number screened inside the carcass. Could be worth letting WTB know, especially if you experienced the same failure mode on two different tires. Itís a popular OEM spec tire too, so Iíll definitely be keeping an eye out for similar bulges. So far I havenít seen it on mine or the OEM models.

    If youíre looking for something different Iíve used the G-One Allround 38c and Donnelly Strada USH 40c. Both worked without issue for me. The G-One feels a little lighter and suppler and the Strada USH is thicker in the middle and may be more puncture resistant. I did have a G-One deform and fail for a customer and in the past they havenít paired up brilliantly with Stanís rims.

    Compass tires have their fans. Theyíre supposed to be incredibly smooth and supple, but also delicate. They also offer a durable compound. I havenít ridden them so canít comment firsthand.

    Although the airport isn't getting much service from the new fence, it is good to see somebody is finding it useful.

    Me: slowing to a halt in front of my condo building after a dark, wet ride home.

    You: driver in a maroon SUV that had been behind me at the last traffic light, now slowing down next to me and rolling down your passenger-side window.

    Me: reflexively tensing up, expecting verbal abuse or worse.

    You, brightly: "I like the reflectors on your bike! You're really easy to see on the road!"

    Me, caught off guard: "Oh! Um . . . thanks!"

    It later occurred to me that I should have asked her to be more specific. Paranoid cyclist that I am, I had nine different illuminating or reflective things on my bike or me: headlight, taillight, hi-viz Ortlieb panniers, reflective stripes on my rain pants, Monkey light on my front wheel, FS zipper pulls, reflective bits on my bar mitts, reflective slap bracelet, and plastic spoke reflectors. Possibly overkill, but at least now I have independent confirmation that *something* is working.
