Slime tubes are some of the best sefl healing tubes on the market and Dick's sells them at a lower price that any other store in the Valley. They even beat the big box store that starts with a W.

I got sick of thorn flats and snake bite pinches so I picked up a 26x2.2 slime tube for my 2.5 tire cuz thats the widest thay go up to and it no problems filling the gap and I have had many flat free rides. I dont even care about the extra waight of the tube cuz I removed my tire changeing tools from my bike, Dont need them! i have to add one very important note! when you fill the tire DO NOT OVER FILL the tire! I did and guess what happend when I went to let some air out of the tube..... you got it! it sealed up in the valve. I had to remove the valve core to let some air out so that tells you the size of a hole the slime will plug up. A hole from a nail or thorn will not be a problem anymore but I am intrested to know how it will react in freezing weather. will it freeze up on the bottom of the tube and shake my bike apart on a smokeing fast down hill? ill let you know when I find out but get one anyway and save youself a headache.

They do as expected. I really like the valvestem. I have adaptors oddly same brand as Slime. Did not need them. My,pump can inflate them.I like the hold down nut that keep the valvestem in place with no air. It makes connecting so much easier. For a sports store Dicks has a tiny selection of bike tubes tires and such. Seems non sports stores have more to offer.

The product worked well. Wish that the package included valve stem adaptor. Had to make return trip to the store.

I used to get flats everytime I rode my bike in the trails in the forest (from thorns, etc.), but with this product I haven't had a flat (yet) and it's been a couple of months so far. So far, so good.

So far so good, tired of changing flats in the woods, I love mountain biking just hate the flat tires so I figured I'd give a slim tube a try.

I was very disappointed in the tube. I got a flat on my first ride after installing the tube. I went back to a thicker thorn resistant tube.

I have run slime in my tires for over 10 years. Living in southern/central California, we have "Goathead" thorns everywhere. If you don't have slime or something similar in your tubes, your ride will be over quick. Since I can't fill my presta valve tubes with slime myself, I use these. They will last me at least a month or two of riding, unless I'm doing a lot of downhill riding and blow one out. They are not very thick tubes, but they are pretty low cost. They don't come in a size wider than 2.125" in store for a 26" diameter tube, but I use them in my 26"x2.35"-2.5" all the time. For bike path riding, or riding around town you won't have any problems at all. They are worth the money.

Tried heavy duty tubes, liners, and slim tubes. Slime tubes are the only way to go in the desert. The only drawback is that the slime sometimes gets in the valves and gums up things. Letting a full tube exhale through the valve minimizes the problem.
