I ride 35c Panaracer T-Serv's on my Salsa Vaya (because I'm on the larger size of adult male). They're delightfully durable for commuting as they were designed for messengers. Highly recommend.

I like the tan sidewall of the Pasela. But I am old school.

As soon as I get the first flat, they are done. After the tread gets thin, you'll get a flat once every 2 weeks. A grain of sand will pop the tire when there is thin tread.

But I get 1 season out the rear (maybe 4K-5K miles?, I don't measure) and 2 seasons out of the front before I start flatting.

Thanks for all of the recommendations everyone!
I am ok with CL but we will keep all these notes in mind and visit a specialty bike shop as well.
