Default Re: Bicycle question..

They only have two tube types at my wally mart... One is no slime, one is regular slime. I don't ride far yet so I have been running no slime. If I were going more than two miles from home on yeah I would put in some regular fix a flat tire inflater foam in then top it off with air to the right pressure. That always seems to do good for me. I think I'm going to check the big tube for leaks in a water bath, then if it is good, I'm going to replace the tube in the wheel now. I know the other one is large enough.

I didn't want to go to all that trouble but you are right, way do it twice when I hate it so much. Of course sometimes they just go right on. Especially if they have been on the wheel before.
