• City:

    I’ve used a hybrid bike for about 5 years. Almost all on the paved road. The paved road here can be a bit gravelly some times, so the slightly wider tyres are useful. I blew out two tyres in the first month, then none for about 7 years, then two in about a year. I’m assuming that a these kind of pure  road bike would be a bit more fragile in that respect. The bike I have would not be good off road, the wheels are a bit big and the tyres a bit thin. But it is fine for rough road.
