It is just an all-around better deal for the type of riding we like to do, making the Mobic Life an even better bike for our fleet.
As an added bonus, I also got to test out these tube-less tires! They're not for sale, yet, but I am really intrigued These narrow orange ones are comparable to a high-pressure road tire and there was a fatter (and sparkly yellow!) tire that would feel more like 35psi. They were a smooth ride, much lighter than I had anticipated. They felt like the EVO material that our Yepp seat was made out of (but I'm not sure if it was the same). From what Michael said, they're a pain-in-the-butt to install but once they're on, you never have to worry about changing them until you wear them out. They're also a surprisingly reasonable cost at $25-45, depending on your bike's rims. This could be pretty life changing for many bike commuters as you'd never have to worry about getting to work late or dirtying up your fancy duds due to changing a flat.
