Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would not ride without them I have used slime tubes for about 10 years. When I lived in West Texas and raced cross country I would have never finished a race without these. At that time I would have to replace them about every month, but when I did they would have about 10-20 holes in them from cactus, mesquite trees, and goat heads that had been sealed by the slime. I still use them here in Colorado and they seal just as well but now last me about 3 to 4 years (less thorns to kill them). For those who complain about the slime leaking out at the valve this can be an issue. I have found it best if you let the slime drain away from the valve before you air them up. It is best if you store the wheels with the valve at a 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock position and air them up in this position. Also, if you get slime in the valve it can leak out air slowly. The best solution I found is if this gets bad enough is to remove the valve stem and use a slight amount of water to flush it out or a q-tip or pipe cleaner to remove all the slime and fibers from the internal threads. You should also clean the valve you removed (but don't lose it down the sink or anywhere else). This allow the valve to seat properly again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One other thing to keep in mind I do like the way these seal smaller punctures. One thing I would suggest is that you not fill these in any room that you can't clean easily. I had a tube explode in the kitchen and the slime literally covered the place. It does clean up but having bright green slime all over does not make the rest of the family happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart product, long overdue These tubes installed just as easily as conventional ones, and the sealant chemical inside promises an end to the plague of minor road punctures. Bonus: the bright green valve cap matches my bike! The tubes are incrementally heavier than a conventional tube, but that doesn't matter to anyone who isn't counting the grams.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small puncture protection Tubless tires and rims are the way to go but for those like me I cant afford a couple of sets for my bikes. This is a almost as much protection little cost. Yes there are a little heavier but reasonable.
