If you want to debate the SLIME no SLIME again, Lets just agree that we don't agree. and leave it at that.

I agree that ya don't ride in the same environment that I do so do not have my experience. I figured this part out by myself. Also how does a said bicycle shop mechanic/owner not have the fortitude to casually find a thick tube?

I have about 2 1/2 hours of ride time on them so far in the seem to be holding up quite well.

One other neat thing is that the air doesn't seem to come out these tires overnight. They seem to have just as much air in them this morning as my first pump them up
This simply has no truth to it. There are tons of thick tubes out there. ''heavy duty ones'' You made some coy posts. I quoted you. S0 what. I did not quote your last post and you mad a reply that made no sense. ''Why no sense because I did not quote you? I was refering to the poor gentlemen that had a flat tire Same as youYou wanna debate ''SLIME'' I'll do it till you are measurable with me. I used it for a good 40 years for a reason!! Guess what that reason was?

It is a good Idea to carrie tools and a tube. I travel in the city and any kind of break down wut so ever is absolutely unheard of for me for the most part. ''So I never carry any tools'' I don't even own a portable air pump as I never ever needed it...
Still gotta have a since of humor.
