Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets me home While the slime tubes don't guarantee that I'll never get a flat they have consistently gotten me home with air in my tires... If a tire is flat the next day it's no big deal as the bike has been cleaned and I have a repair stand and floor pump. On the other hand, repairing a flat while out in the woods or on muddy trails is no fun at all... especially in the dark. Many years ago I worked in a LBS and I typically repair 1-3 flats per week for myself and family... as such I have repaired 1,000s of flats and I still prefer to make it home with air in my tire to repairing a flat on the road or in the woods. For this reason I recommend the Slime tubes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well if.... I read a couple posts about the clogging problem with Presta valve slimed tubes before purchase. The solution is to always make sure you air up with the presta valve in the 12 o'clock High position. It is prone to slime clogging the valve otherwise (slime is intended to plug small holes, the presta valve hole is small). I have so far always remembered and they have been a good fix for the the constant flats I was getting with the Schwalbe Racing Ralph light weight 29er tires I have. A tuffer tire might not have needed slime for my summer riding so this was a fix for a tire that I liked except for its lack of protection from thorn flats, I have some really heavy thick tread Nokian steel studded tires for winter riding that never get flats, no slime in those guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from less flat problems Like the last post says if you fill it properly you won't have a problem. Being in Arizona I get lots of thorn holes and it fixes it every time, I think if I had a tougher tire I won't have so many problems, but the slime works good. I even was able to refill the tube with more slime when I use it up instead of replacing the tube.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Presta + Slime = clogged valve When you fill a presta tube with air, you normally have to pop the valve head after you un-screw it. When there is slime in the tube, some of the slime comes out and clogs the valve. After 2-3 fills, the valve is all clogged up and filling becomes a big problem. Schrader valves are fine, but forget slime with with Presta valves.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from cactus? I ride a lot of 2 track and animal paths, Wyoming single track, in the desert around the house. I lost the trail yesterday so had to bushwack through small sagebrush and masses of small, 1-2 inch, prickly pear cactus. When to go out today and the rear tire is flat. The slime tube was a great help ... I could easily find the holes in the tube. They were where the green ooz was coming out. It provided no protection at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed when needed most I had this as a spare in a race and the stem failed when I had a flat. The slime did not re-seal and I had a DNF for my team!! So dissatisfied & disappointed!
