Slime Self-Healing 26" Presta Tube
Thorn-proof your ride
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.

Best solution to needles, thorns, and "goatheads"
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.

Couldn't squeeze it
Was unable to even hook this stuff up and squeeze it out correctly, so i threw it away.

Lasted less than 48 hours
This tube is terrible. I had 2 days useage and tire is flat. Not much fun pushing a bike 1 mile with a flat to get home. The poor rating I gave is generous...would have gone lower if it was available.

the slime tubes arent near what a stans no tubes set up would be but they can save you in a pickle and they are fairly durable , i would disregard the other review here because the customer has no idea what he wanted nor does he have any bike knowledge whatsoever . the presta valve is a better system , the valve does not leak air because you can lock it down also if your pump does not have the presta fitting , then you are not using a proper bike pump and will probably not get enough air into the tube or it will be damaged.

Not a good tire
The tire is impossible to fill without a special piece to inflate the type of valve
