Proteus Dan said: Had a tire failure for the first time last year when the sidewall blew out.  Defective tire??  Anyway, put a dollar bill in  as a boot and limped to the next town and got a new tire at a bike shop.  Luckily they had a 27″ tire (old Proteus) . Running Gatorskins this year.

PD, last year I stopped to help a young women with a flat tire.  That was the hardest tire to get off the rim.  I must have been there for an hour.  Have you had to take them off the rim yet?  
    Have not.
