I'm down in miles a bit, but a couple of years ago I was putting about 7,000 miles a year on my bike.

Very few "immortal" tires liked that kind of mileage on the rear.

Danny MacAskill would need more of a challenge than a front wheel Century ride. I suppose the ascents would be a bit of a challenge, but I'm sure he could figure it out. Hopping?

I like the Gator Hardshells for general riding. I think they have quite a bit more longevity than the gatorskins.

Assuming 36 spokes, if it took out a spoke or two or three, it might still be rideable, but a major pain.
