The tubes work well for small punctures. You will need to know if your bike uses a presta (small) valve or a schrader (std) valve for the air filler.
The tube met our expectations for reduced frequency of thorn puctures but the base of the valve stem is prone to early wear and air leakage which can't be repaired by patching.
I bought this for my mountian bike and wanted to have a sealant that would be tough, it said in the discription of the product and it said it would seal a hole 1/8th of an inch. well , that is false, I got a flat tire and it was just a little bigger than a pin hole and all that the slime did was leak out , like water and make a green mess everywhere.
I would not buy this product again , I will look for another brand that has proven leak proof, like Bell.
I hit a bump hard and popped the front tube. Spun the wheel to try to get the slime to seal it and waited a few minutes for it to harden before using a hand pump. It still leaked air. I suppose this particular incident ruptured the tube more than it was capable of handling. Had to walk 7.5 miles to get home (I've walked that distance many times before so no big deal to me). I should mention that these tubes were on my bike for 9 months and had, I kid you not, over 1000 miles put on them before this incident occurred. On the plus side these tubes held air really well; I hardly ever had to air them up.
I have purchased several bell tubes and they have gone flat as soon as I ride off the sidewalk. But my slime tube can take any terrain. I will never buy another bell tube again no matter how cheap they are. Its less $ in the long run to get the slime tubes.
Ran over a small wire that punctured my regular tube. Replaced with Slime because i have had good results on other bikes with this tube.
I sure hope this works out as well as last one did. I put over 200 hard off-road miles on my last tire/tube set and I never had a flat with this tube and the Kevlar tire. I only had to replace it because I noticed the white tread showing through the tire. It is still holding pressure, and I hate to let the air out of it to replace it. This is a fine product, that is highly recommended by this off roader!
Got this for my son. We live in the country and it doesn't take long to get a whole in the regular tubes. Argo far we haven't had any problems.
I have replaced two regular tubes on the front and the rear is still intact. I am replacing the front with a slime tube and buying an extra one for backup.
BOUGHT THIS TUBE...WONT HOOK UP TO REGULAR AIR FILL UP WITH OUT A ADDITIONAL ATTACHMENT!!!!!!!!!!! PLUS THE STEM IS TOO SMALL FOR NORMAL BIKE TIRES!!! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!! I DID AND THREW IN THE TRASH!!!!!
Had very small puncture out of box (much less then 1/8 inch). Green stuff did not seal. Have been pumping air into it for an hour now and turning the tire every which way. The puncture wouldn't be as upsetting if the thing was "self-sealing" as advertised. Paid extra for self-sealing. Not pleased at all.
