    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromAbsolutely worthless Once inflated, the slime blocks the valve so that you need to let a little air out to be able to pump them back up, but that's not a big deal. The problem is that they don't stop or seal leaks at all. I've gone through several of these and all they're good for is spraying green slime all over your bike and making a mess out of replacement. I have also had the valve stem separate from the rest of the tubes on several of these, which has never been a problem for me with any other tubes. Bottom line, absolute garbage.

    by fromPoor product The valve stem broke the minute I pumped up the tire. Green slime leaked all over. There is a far more effective flat tire preventor: CAREFULLY look over every inch of your outer tire before every ride. I mark blemishes with Whiteout Correction fluid and keep anextra sharp eye on these spots. I had 2 flats last year: 3,700 miles. Both flats happened in the same 6 foot strip of driveway.

    by fromWorst Tube Ever Don't bother buying a Slime tube. While sitting in the box on the shelf all the slime gathers in one area of the rube making it impossible to inflate evenly. I went through 3 of them (with one acutally popping on me...green slime everywhere) before I gave up and returned them to REI as junk.

    by fromslimed poor quality rubber ruptured around 10 psi below min tire psi and made a huge mess as green slime sprayed everywhere, did not even want slime I got them because heard they used a better quality rubber then other companies... they use the same crude quality and they make a mess of things when they break that is hard to clean up. terrible idea. i will try to buy non slime tubes when they break they are easy to clean up.

    by fromUseless Tried these yesterday for the first time. After inflating it started leaking immediately. Pinhole just behind the valve. Lots of green slime leaked out but it did nothing useful to plug the tiny hole. Tried to patch it but the slime prevents the patch from sticking (actually it stuck just long enough to get 3 miles from home). Interwebs say that patching these pretty much never works. Going back to regular tubes and a pack of scabs for punctures (which do always work for me...)

    by fromLimited functioning Had a small puncture, green slime filled in, but subsequently seemed to let air out pretty quickly. Did not appear to make much of a difference for the higher price.

    by fromWorst tube ever! The tube split at the seam when I inflated it. It made a huge mess. I thought I'd never get the wheel cleaned up. Never again.

    by fromUseless for road bikes! I went through three of these in a row. Two seemed to have holes in them before I even got them on the bike! The slime inside has never done a thing to stop the leaks. It does make it impossible to apply a patch to the tube. From what I've read, slime tubes seem to work alright for mountain bikes, but these 700c's are just a messy waste of time and money. I rue the day I bought these worthless inner tubes!
