With 700 x 34, there is a bit of a weight penalty, but it can be used. Using it with 700 x 37 tires is fine. I have found it very helpful for maintaining pressure on my tires during a ride. Reinflating will keep the air inside the bag for as long as possible. It will be sufficient for finishing the ride and continuing to ride for a number of

Despite the challenges, the credit goes to these individuals Slime is inside, and it is definitely a tube. That's about all we know about I was not able to find a way to use the sealing feature On my second ride on this tube (in the rear wheel), I ended up with a puncture, and the slime sprayed out, but it failed to seal the hole (see Besides the hole size being larger than the supposedly sealable 3mm limit, it is just a little larger than 1. 75mm which suggests that it may not be safe to use. I haven't had a hole that big in any of my other tubes (and I've been getting flats a lot It seems as though the tube is designed to rip just enough to go above the size in which the tube is designed It's impossible to say. Furthermore, the 85-degree temperature could also be related to There is a possibility that the 95 PSI pressure range may be too high to allow the sealing to occur. Whatever the case, I didn't find it to be effective. It is the worst part of all because this tube cannot be patched since it continues to leak slime, and the patches do not stick (must be some interaction between the glue and It's worked in a majority of other flats - I've tried three times with patches already - I've given up after each attempt. There's nothing wrong with them they just don't adhere well. There is leaking air out of the tube after I pump it. After the tube has been punctured once, it can no longer be used I'd say this is a substantially worse deal than any tube without slime.
The bottom line is that the tube did not seal the puncture, and it is not usually . *B. Oh, and these tubes have a lot of slime in them, so even if you pump them, they tend to clog because the slime leaks out the valve and into the pump.
We bought a batch of these in March when they were quite affordable to add to our collection You can view items by clicking on them. I am sure it is a common thing, but the first one I had the chance to try deflated immediately after a week of use, and for no apparent Autopsies revealed an area less than 1/8" across, allegedly within the "instant seal" size, but probably outside the "instant seal" tread zone it may have been more on the outside of the sidewall of the tire. It doesn't appear that the Presta valve is functioning The green goo from the snuff can spray onto clothes or carpets when you agitate or remove these products. Furthermore, it is known that the goo collects in the valve stem, which creates a jam, and that it can also spray into your bike pump. Since I am simply patching them, I will assume that they have the same general durability as The only reason I might return them is if they were not so inexpensively priced on Amazon.
As I tried to seat the tire, the first tube blew out near the valve stem, and the second tube leaked there as well. This is horrible.
My favorite way to ensure that the wheels are seated properly is to take my fingers over the inner side of the tires, making sure there is no debri inside the wheels. I had no problems with the first one. But once I dropped the second one to 10psi below the manufacturer's recommended pressure, it burst into a huge mess. I have been receiving false readings from two different pressure gauges on the third one. Having pumped the third tire up to 28 psi, it feels solid as a rock and the tires' manufacturer recommends 100 psi. I thought at first that the slime accidentally messed up my pressure gauge, but I tested it in other tires and they all worked fine. That tire is now reading 28 psi and it rides perfectly fine. Needless to say, I will not buy.
This is the third time that I've failed. These tubes fail right next to the valve, so the problem is not coming from the inside. Both front and rear tires have been having this problem. For a day, it's good for a 10 mile ride, then for the next day it's I have tried 70 pounds of pressure and 80 pounds of pressure. Since I'm in Hawaii, either these are old, or the ones I got have been damaged by the heat in shipping. In this part of the world, it is not that hot. There is no point in taking the risk any longer. There is no way for the slime to fix its own hole, and it is never used to cause The basic tubes are also a good idea.
One tube to go on the bike and one to use as a spare were purchased. I got a flat on the first one that would not seal, so I pulled it out of the tire and found it had formed a crack where the rubber interfaced with the valve stem. I pumped up the second tire and as I was doing so, I heard air leaking from the tire. When removing the tube from the tire, it were also having trouble at the interface between the tube and the valve stem. Slime tires were used in the past without issue, but I did not enjoy them the quality was poor. I would rate the product no stars if it were possible, but that is not an option for me.
I purchased it because I was tired of patching inner tubes that had been punctured by small thorns on It caught my eye that a tube could self-seal, and I was tempted by it. There was a lot of mess in the process, and I was not sure how to install the sealant properly. My attention was then drawn to a tube that already had the sealant installed. an abundance of experience patching tubes or removing them, I knew the product would be straightforward to install. If you haven't done it before, it will be difficult. If you have done it before, it is no different than installing a typical Tubes with pre-applied preservatives My new sealant did not cost much more per tube than regular tubes (possibly less), and it should be okay for small punctures (under an inch a piece), which were the cause of 98% of my problems during the first year.
It worked exceptionally well for me to return this product, but I was extremely disappointed in it. No problems were encountered during the installation of the tube. Once I inflated the tube to the correct pressure, I heard it leaking (rapidly) after less than 10 minutes. As I have changed quite a few tubes, I knew I ran the risk of pinching the tube, which could cause it to fail (my mistake). Upon removing the tube, I discovered that it failed at the seam of the tube, indicating that it was a quality issue from the manufacturer. Both were returned to Amazon since I did not proceed with installation of the second. The QC of Slime is disappointing.
