Bad for road tyres

PostedMarch 3, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Poor quality
They're not easy to fit due to the width so you can end up getting a punture from the tube pinching with they tyre and if you dont fit it properly, you'll also get large punctures from where the liner cuts the inner tube. Better off getting a good pair or tyres if you're riding in the cities.

Not for me

PostedFebruary 25, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: recommended for 26x700 or above
Cons: Expensive, hard to fit
I needed something that would not cause me to puncture everytime i went out for a training ride. I have bought these before for my montainbike, and were excellent, although when i bought them for my racing bike(23x700), they were of no good. The innertube even burst when i was on the rollers at home.

Stripped for action

PostedFebruary 24, 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
Living and riding in Norfolk, as I do, where farmers leave thorns from pruned hedges all over the roads and broken glass often litters quiet country lanes I ended up routinely getting punctures - often as many as two a day!
After investing in puncture-resistant tyres, Green Slime and Slime Tyre Liner (how pessimistic can you get?) I have had no more punctures.
I have on one or two occasions deliberately put this stuff to the test by riding in puncture-inviting areas - edges of country roads, etc. Not a puncture! So far.

Slime Tyre Liner

PostedDecember 10, 2009
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Reliable, although I would prefer it if they made them slightly thinner. Never the less it does what it says on the pack.
