During my quarantine cleanup I came upon an extra front wheel for my measuring bike. I figured I would use it for measuring only, and keep the other wheel for regular riding/commuting, thus sparing the JOR Counter unnecessary wear.
Then I got to thinking about putting an airless tire on the measuring wheel. Would eliminate the possibility of flats (fortunately I've never had one during a measurement) as well as reducing temperature change and the need to pump up the tire before riding (seems like I'm always in too much of a hurry to do that consistently).
Came across a couple models from Tannus. On sale for $65. Anyone have any experience, pro or con, with these in particular and airless tires in general.
PS - Never thought much about going airless until I rode Duane Russell's bike for a measurement in Denver before the shutdown, and have to say it didn't seem all that different than one with a pneumatic tire.
