When you pull a thorn out or it comes out on its own, there is some loss of air until the slime congeals in the hole. If you spin the wheel or just keep riding, the slime is distributed and pushed outward and will almost always seal the hole within 10 or 20 seconds or so, sometimes you have to work it a little longer. If the wheel is stationary with the hole facing up pretty much nothing will happen. Sometimes you have to pump the tire up to replace the lost air and to help the slime push through the hole.
Some slime does get between the tube and the inside of the tire but so what?
Slime tubes last for a long time but eventually I get a thorn that makes a hole too big for the slime to heal or I get a hole in the sidewall. If you know what Kiawe trees are you know what I'm talking about. Everyone around here uses slime. It does add a lot of weight and right where it hurts the most but if you live in kiawe country you gotta have it.
I replaced 3 old flat bike tubes with these slime tubes, and each and every one was flat within a month.
I should be more specific: These tubes are okay for a street bike because there is very little debri on a street capable of puncturing a tire, thus the slime never sees the light of day. For a mountain bike these things are a disaster. Actually, they go flat more readily than a normal tire tube, likely because the tubes themselves are cheaply made.
Road bikes should find these tubes 'suitable', barely, and only because they don't encounter punctures as often. I don't recommend them. Get a bottle of the Slime sealant and pair that with a strong, well made tube.
