I only had one puncture in my lifetime with a thorn i found it was and ive never in all the yrs used anything ..My bikes always were normal tubing inside tires and not had many problems with punctures personally apart from that one time and that was yrs backdo you mean slim innertubes or tubeless sealant as you can get slime tubes with both valves.
Shop the latest Don't let a flat ruin your day, let Slime's tube sealant protect your tyres and get you back on the road quickly and easily when you get a flat. at Halfords UKwww.halfords.com
you will need a inner tube with a removable valve core so you can pump it in to the tube with a syringe.
going full tubeless will be a lighter cheaper option in the long run as 1l of the stuff i use is £20 and use 50ml per tyre every 3 months.
i have never had a puncture
decent tyres help a lotI only had one puncture in my lifetime with a thorn i found it was and ive never in all the yrs used anything ..My bikes always were normal tubing inside tires and not had many problems with punctures personally apart from that one time and that was yrs back
for off road id not recommend slime tubes.Thanks for the tips guys. I think I might go for the pre slimed inner tubes.
I got this bike on 22nd November, and have only had one puncture - the day after I bought it. Fortunately a slow puncture to the front tyre, so didn't discover it until the next morning. The guy I bought the bike from had given me two spare inner tubes, which was incredibly useful. Found getting the tyre off and back on an absolute sod, but got there in the end.
With Summer just round the corner, I want to take the bike further and off road, but really don't want to get stranded with a fast puncture, so your advice is sincerely appreciated.
I fitted a kevlar belts many years ago; not that brand. They were not very effective. My experience with Slime around the same time was that it was worse than useless. Marathon Plus were the answer for me, but they are heavy and don't have good sideways grip so are not right for all users.I was thinking Kevlar insert.
