I don't know if I've ever given one star to a product before. I REALLY wanted to believe in these. I read the reviews from others about how they didn't work and told myself that their expectations must have been way out of line. Not so.

A little over two years ago, I moved from Central Florida to Southern New Mexico and was introduced to the bane of cyclists - the goat head. These ubiquitous multi-pronged thorns always present a thorn sticking up. As a heavy rider (200 lbs), I have an unusually hard time with flats. Riding my Rubino Pros with conventional tubes, I seriously alternated days riding with days patching tires. I became VERY frustrated, and started looking for solutions:

1) Fill your tubes with a sealant such as Slime or Stan's. You need to buy removable core tubes to inject the sealant, and until recently, I didn't know of any (my old shop back in FL pointed out that Vittoria markets them in the US). Or buy a tube with the sealant already installed such as this product.

2) Get extra heavy tubes, extra thick tires or insert thick protective strips. Even if you're not a weight weenie, (and if you are, rotational weight is the worst kind), these products really add to the rolling resistance. I didn't buy decent high thread count tires to ruin the rolling resistance with tire strips.

3) Probably the best option, but very expensive, is to convert to tubeless with a sealant. Stan's Notubes has a kit to seal conventional road rims and install a tubeless tire.

My research indicated that sealant like Slime (vs. the latex sealants) have fibers that should seal better, and don't dry out in the tube needing replacement. The Slime tubes seemed just like the answer. The goat head holes or tiny.

I ride 100+ miles per week. There are times where I've had 4 flats per ride. I figured I would try the slime product. This slime lite tube doesn't work very well. Also, one rating commented on how the green slime marked where the hole is so it was easy to find the leak and patch it. However, that rater also noted,that they cleaned the area and patched it, but the patch didn't hold. This leaking of the patch was my experience as well. If you end up with a hole or puncture and the slime doesn't work, and then attempt to patch it, the slime eventually pushes under the patch. Then the patch doesn't hold. The patches I used were slimes own green self stick patches! Years ago, I found that the Parks clear patches work very well. I just found them again and appreciate how well they work. I recommend the parks clear patches. The big difference is that patches are inexpensive and you can put a few in your wallet. The slime is not effective. This idea is nice, but unfortunately it doesn't work well.

In general, after a few flats (say about 10) you get very good at patching a hole in a tube. I can usually find the hole and patch with out even taking the wheel of the bike. It takes maybe 5 minutes. Years ago, (35) sears roebuck used to sell a heavy duty tube. As a kid I was tough on bikes and the tubes held up. I think you may be better off trying heavier gauge rubber tubes rather than waste money on this product.

These tubes are great.

I was about 4 miles from home with no repair equipment whatsoever when I got my first puncture with these. They streamed slime for a few minutes, then held the seal. I was running 25c tires at 120 psi when I left the house and the slime closed the hole well enough to keep me at 90 psi by the time I got home and pumped them back up to 120 psi.

I'll never ride on another tube without slime.

I was skeptical at first with the Lite version of these tubes, having used the standard slime tubes for years on my mountain bike - saved many times from changing flats due to thorns. I've since had two thorns that I have pulled from two different tires with these tubes and the slime worked like a charm, filled the hole and holding pressure months later.

Not sure why all the negative reviews, proper installation of an inner tube may be the trick to solve many of the negative feedback such as bad valve stems (if you install the tube with side pressure on the valve stem or are abusive while inflating it will break at the weak point.) Also suggest letting the tube expand evenly inside of the tire while inflating to prevent excessive stretch on sections of the tube. Another common issue is not fully checking the inside of your tire for remaining fragments of whatever may have punctured the tube previously.

well, the tube was holding for a while; and I was rather satisifed.
yet, when it got "pinched" or "punchtered" I'm not sure ..it didn't
really sealed itself; but rather oozed green slime when I tried to
re-pump it back to riding pressure (presta). eventually, I had to
replace the tube as it didn't "heal" altogether!
one nice thing, though, if you do get a pinche/puncture the gren
slime shows you more or less where it's leaking :(
I then applied a slime patch; after cleaning it, and manage to ride
just about 12 or so miles before it gave up; I replaced it with a
spare tube. maybe it's the rim or the road I was taking -- it did
last more then a regular tube of about this weight 100+ gram.
