by Jon N.fromAwfully fragileI've gone through four of these in the past six months; the most recent lasted a week. They always break open where the valve stem passes through the rim. I align the stem straight through the hole and haven't had this problem with any other tube.

by DBT DadfromStem Separates Easily From TubeI like the convenience of the Schrader over the Presta but this NOT a reliable product. Keeping the remarks of the other reviewer in mind, I took great care to handle this tube with kid gloves. After not more than six airings of the bike tires the stem separated from the tube. Thanks goodness I had a spare tube with me. Oh well, I guess I will learn to like the Presta valves a little better now.
