This is a great product, but does not work with 1.75 tires. The diameter of the tube will not allow the bead to set for anything smaller than a 1.95 tire. I know, I worked on it for quite a while before I realized what the problem was. Rather frustrating, so figured I would let people know about it before they run into the same issue.
Got in on with one plastic tire tool. Very easy to install if you follow directions and have a vinal or plastic tire tool.
Tires may seem low all the time if the rider is over 200 lbs. Would not recommend for anyone wieghing close to or over 300 lbs like myself. Need to stay with air-ups and ballon tires.
Works great otherwise, will buy more, you can count on it!
Bell Sports "No-Mor Flats" inner tube is an awesome product. It's a little work getting it on the rim, but if you follow the instructions, you should have no problems. Once installed, it works great!
I have mixed feeling about my experience with this product. I've been using bikes as my main mode of transportation for over two years now. It helps me get some regular exercise and it saves loads on money.
I bought my first solid inner tube about a year and a half ago. At the time my average daily commute via bike was around 14 miles round trip. So this seemed like a dream come true. I bought only one for my rear tire. The ride was a little less smooth but all in all worked great. About a year ago I got a new bike and I switched the tube to the front tire of the new bike which has shocks evening out the UN-smooth ride I had experienced before.
About a month ago my rear inner tube had seen it's end so I figured I would get another solid inner tube. Now it feels like I'm riding on low tires. Even while riding down hill, though it's not very steep, where i used to easily keep pace with traffic, I now have great difficulty getting any decent speed or momentum at all. So I have to push hard through the whole ride. I've done all sorts of maintenance on my bike to make sure it's not something else causing the problem. Everything seems well fit and lubed properly.
From my personal experiences with this product I would recommend using only one per bike. For me while using only one the drawbacks where so minimal they went almost unnoticed. For the other tire, or tires in case of trikes and other similar rides, I would recommend armored treads (such as Kevlar), thicker inner tubes and slime from the bottle.
My wife bought 2 bikes from garage sales and I fixed them up, oiled them put air in the tires. And on the maiden voyage the front tire popped before I got on. It wasn't over inflated, just an old tire. I saw these online and had my doubts and questions. I went into the store, and saw it. It is basically a solid hard foam rubber insert that is the shape of an inflated inner tube. I bought in and installed it in under 2 minutes. Actually I bought enough for all the tires and replaced all at once. They are very solid, have good give, and are very supportive. You CAN NOT puncture them, because it is solid foam. They ride very smooth, and no worries. I highly recommend them to everyone and anyone. I bike daily, when I can get out to get a good pump on my legs, and I ride over questionable terrain. There aren't ANY sidewalks within a mile of where I live, so it is the roads for me with all its potholes and occasional glass. Anyway... good tire fix... get them.
I bought this Product thinking that it would get rid of the flat tire problems.So i decided to give it a try. Installation was easy But it fells like a flat tire. You need a great deal of strength in order to even get the bike moving. These inner tubes feel like flat tires. I do not recommend you to buy these tube instead buy Kevlar tires and slime filled tubes.
My experience with this product has been nothing short of remarkable.
The tires I inserted them into are 26 x 1.95, and fit perfectly. I guess those with a less than 1.95 might have issues, and perhaps Bell should address that.
My bike also has a couple "spring suspensions" which might also account for the very LITTLE difference in riding pleasure. Curiously enough, I bought my bike from Walmart as well, for I think less than $100.
Anyway, under the proper circumstances(of tire and bike type) I would HIGHLY recommend these inserts! I can go ANYWHERE.
As others have posted, these are like riding on partially flat tires. The idea sounded good. I read all the reviews. Some said they are good, others said what I just said. Initially I didn't think they were too bad when I went on some short rides. I did notice that you have to be constantly working to keep the bike moving. Then I gave them a bigger test. I have gone on a 40 - 50 mile rides many times prior to installing these with no problems. With these on my bike after a 25 mile ride I was completely whupped. I followed that up with a 20 mile ride a few days later, whupped again. I took them off my bike & returned them both to Walmart. I went on a 40 mile ride today with air tubes back on my bike, no problems at all.
I like this product and I reccomend it to anyone who does not want a flat tire on the way to work or the store or just on a casual drive enjoying the day on a bicycle. It probably willl not appeal to the fancy spandex crowd but think about fixing a flat along side the road on on a trail. If you like having more fun than frustration buy NoMoreFlates and enjoy your day. BTW: I drive a 21 speed mountain bike on desert terrrain, dirt roads and on city streets.
My son put one of these on his back tire last year after repeated flat tires. He was so pleased with it that he recently put one on the front tire when it went flat. When he next rode the bike, it felt sluggish and hard to move. His dad gave it a try and experienced the same problem. So we will be replacing the front tire with an inflated tire again.
I USE MY MEN'S 26-INCH AVALON BIKE TO COMMUTE BACK AND FORTH TO WORK EVERYDAY. EASY TRIP I CAN MAKE IN 10 MINUTES. I RECENTLY HAD A BLOW-OUT IN MY BACK TIRE. BOUGHT A "NO-MOR FLATS" TIRE, HAVING HAD ONE WHEN I WAS A KID (AND LOVED IT). VERY HARD TO INSTALL, VERY HARD TO GET IT TO SIT RIGHT ON THE RIM. GOT THAT ALL TAKEN CARE OF AND RODE IT TO WORK THE NEXT DAY. IT TRULY FEELS LIKE YOU'RE RIDING ON A FLAT TIRE. I WAS CONSTANTLY LOOKING BACK THINKING IT HAD SLIPPED OFF THE RIM. GETTING TO WORK WASN'T TOO BAD, IT'S ALL DOWNHILL. I DID NOTICE I WAS NOT ABLE TO COAST NEARLY AS FAR AS BEFORE. ON THE WAY BACK HOME, I ALMOST WALKED THE BIKE. IT'S A 2 MILE TRIP, ALL UPHILL. EVEN IN FIRST GEAR, I WAS SWEATING AND BREATHING HARD. GOOD IDEA, GOOD PRICE, POOR PRODUCT. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
I commute to work all year round, and I get a flat every now and then.. I purchase this bell no mor flat tube today and its awesome.. I have a 26x 1.75 commuter tire that I'm using and it is rock hard.. You really don't have to use water, once you figure it out you got it.. Just be careful not to bend your rim with the screwdriver, like I did.. Just a few small dents..
I installed both tubes & tires, they spun on the rim! My tires are 26" x 1.95", the correct size for these tubes. Ther're both too big! I got a refund on both & bought 5x slime tubes & protection strips inbetween the tube & tire.
Rolling resistance is horrible. My bike's original tires psi pressure is designed to 35. It's a regular mountain bike, quite a popular one. When using these tubes it is like riding on both flat tires with psi less than 20. I would say, maybe, from 15 to 20 psi. I ride about 11.2 miles every day. The only time I tried these tubes it was a 1.5 hours non-stop workout like in a gym instead of 45-50 minutes that it usually takes to make this distance. The bike does not roll by itself at all, you have to hardly pump the pedals all the time.
The tires on my garden cart were always flat. The tube was easy to install and works well. Not so sure I would like it on a bike...
I must say I am very surprised and confused by the negative reviews, although I accept that these experiences are very likely to be true. I will just discuss my years of using this product. In the early 1990s I rode my bike everywhere and on long weekend rides (70+ miles) Because of the weekend rides, I bought the no-mor-flat 26" solid tube so that I would not feel insecure riding a 35 mile bike path along a wash all the way to the beach and back. It seems it was a bit difficult to install but once it was on it was perfect, if anything it felt like the tire was almost over-inflated and the ride was better that any other tube/liner combination I had used.
I rode with this set of F-N-M's for years. Things changed in my life and the bike sat dormant for 8 years. I gave the bike to a friend that needed one in 2006. He has replaced the tires but is still using the same pair of No-Mor-Flats that are over 20 years old and he loves them.
Now, in June of 2009 I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. I was over 380 lbs at this time, so I went out and bought another bike and began riding again. I bought the No-Mor-flats again and my experience was nearly identical to the last time, great feeling of tire pressure and security. There must be some variable I don't understand that causes this difference for other riders. Both of the bikes I owned were hybrids with 26 X 1.95 (at least I think that was the size of the first one). My weight during the 90s was about 205lbs and my weight when I bought the second set of tubes varied 384-225lbs.
I don't no why others have had this bad experience but I would say, give them a try and if they fit your tires well, keep them and never have to stop/repair your tires again. But if they don't work for you, return them.
Once you get them installed, you never have to worry about your tires EVER going flat again! Totally Worth Buying!
I love this product and this is the 2nd time i've bought the NoMoreFlat tires for bicycles. They're the best secret in town! However - you will need to install them yourself because bike shops hate them! Just think of all that money you're not wasting on bike repair, tubes and so forth.
I've used Bell's Solid Tires for nearly 6 years and I've never had a problem with them. I've been able to ride my mountain-bike through all different types of surfaces, and I'm happy that I no longer have to worry about getting a flat-tire. The only thing you have to consider is that the solid tires will add a little weight to your bike, but not much. Just think of it as a way to work out your legs a little more. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is thinking about doing some serious bike riding.
I like it!!!
