Default Re: Tire or rim problem?? I need suggestions

Never had this problem on a regular bicycle. This problem is even worse now that my bike has a shift kit. Any thoughts---suggestions on how to keep the tire from slipping
it's the bontranger tubes!!!!!
AFTER WAISTING A LOT OF MONEY ON THE SAME PROBLEM i FINALLY REALIZED...DUH! same tubes same problem time and again....Schwinn self-sealing tubes, CAN'T BEAT EM!
