12 months and 7,000 miles without a flat. Went out in the garage last night, and my bike had developed a flat just sitting there. I last rode it about 2 days ago. Turns out that a small, arrowhead-shaped piece of gravel had pierced the bottom of the tire. It must have been a slow leak because I didn't notice anything on my last ride, 22 miles on Sunday.

Can anyone top that? BTW, I used Michelin Axial Pros and Hilites for most of my mileage.

About 4, but I rotate my tires a lot. Some of the tires I've removed still have plenty of wear on them.
