Rated 5 out of 5 by Wryfox Great for mountain bikes I use the 26x2.25 presta version. The #1 biggest problem with mountain biking is all the stuff you run over on the trails. When I started mountain biking 4 years ago I had 6 flats in the first three months, using std tubes. I tried going tubeless as well but to me its a mess toi set up and mess to manage because you need to use a Slime like sealer to do it. So when I found the Sline tubes, I thought I had found the perfect balance. Yes they are heavier than a std tube (about 240g vs 120g for a std tube), but I ride a 40lb mountain bike(loaded with gear) so a few grams is not an issue (whereas getting a flat miles from home is a BIG issue). I Have not a A SINGLE flat using these tubes for the past 4 years. Not to say the tires haven't got minor punctures, but the slime seals the flat as if it never happened. Few words of advise...1) always inspect your tires pre and post ride for damage..if you get a puncture (you will see this by the green ooze at the puncture point) remove the puncture item and let the puncture seal. The slime coats the inner surface of the tube so for even coverage ride the bike a little and it will seal. These tubes can take a pretty big puncture. Pulled a big thorn out last weekend (size of a rose thorn) and it still sealed. 2) The slime is a liguid and will pool at the bottom of the tire, and the wheel may feel off balance as you start riding. HOnestly I don't even notice anymore but it takes maybe a hundred feet or so of riding to redistribute the slime inside the tire. No big deal. 3) I am now replacing my tubes because the inflation valves are getting sticky. The slime does come out a little when inflating. I make sure the valve is at the bottom of the tire (closest to the ground) and push the valve in with my thumb and a small piece of paper towel to clean the valve a bit before attaching the pump. My pump has never suffered or gotten clogged and works just fine after these years. HIGHLY recommend this product for anyone who wants care free tires. November 10, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elwood333 This product's quality and material construction is far superior to the Schwinn brand that I originally purchased @ Walmart. I ride my bike close to 7 days a week. This past summer I had 4 (yes FOUR!) tire blowouts using the Schwinn bicycle brand of replacement inner tubes purchased @ Walmart. I became so frustrated by the constant changing of the tires that I vowed to get the inner tubes somewhere else. I luckily thought of Dick's. (The return associate @ Walmart explained to me that: "They do get a lot of those inner tubes returned to them on a pretty regular basis." The quality of the Slime inner tube carried by Dick's is readily apparent the moment you open the packaging. They feel twice as thick as the Schwinn's product sold @ Walmart. The valve stems are also of much better quality than the Schwinn product. I will never shop for bike replacement products at any other store. Dick's carries quality product. September 22, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bigjim Slime Smart Tube while inflating the tire it blew out unrepairable...will not buy another self healing tube June 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by tlb Horrible tube. I knew when I bought it that it wouldn't work as advertised....but I spent the extra money just in case. Whatever punctured the tube was so small I couldn't find it, although the box shows screws and nails sticking out of the tire as if they were no problem. DON'T BUY IT!!! May 19, 2015
