comment How to ride to work without sweating?
@Davor: No, it's not science, just practical knowledge. What you eat, particularly spice, ends up in your transpiration and contributes to body odor. In this sense even a person that just took a shower and sweats releases a smell. Drinking a lot of water just dilutes these things, (whatever they are) and makes body odor less prominent, even before bacteria reproduction.

comment Why did my tire fail?
Then it sounds like chemical damage. It may have contacted some solvent, oil or the like, but most rubber compound can resist common paint solvents, and motor oil

comment Why did my tire fail?
Was the bike being carried in a rear rack? If so, did the tire sat on the stream of the exhaust? I've seen tires ruined by the heat of the exhaust. It weakens the inner threads so the rubber is left on its own but it can't whitstand the air pressure.

comment What is the benefit of fat tires on pavement?
These days I'm using a fully rigid mountain bike even for XC riding (the trails need very little suspension) and the 26x2.1 tires with low pressure are enough for me. The big advantage for me is that having no suspension my bike is way lighter than some expensive single susp. bikes. I guess that the same holds true for city riding with a fully rigid fat bike if you care little for rolling resistance. After all, coping with extra weight for the sake of comfort from suspension is just another kind of sacrifice. Why not accept extra rolling resist. in exchange of comfort and lightness?

comment What is the benefit of fat tires on pavement?
I agree that comfort may be the only "benefit" that would make me choose a fat bike for city riding. A fat rigid bike may be lighter than a full suspension bike and provide enough cushioning for small potholes, pavement creases and the like.
