    I don't think is is one perfect tube. Different tubes are good for different applications. Self-sealing tubes may prevent you from flatting while you're on a ride but they're a little heavier than an average tube. A tire liner may also help. It's a plastic strip installed between the tire and tube. Otherwise, be sure your tire pressure is adequate for the riding situation. Low tire pressure can result in a "snake bite" puncture where the tube gets pinched by the rim edges.

    Tube Selection

    This might be of some concern ... but have been told that you sacrafice weight for flat protection. For the past three years have been using "True Goo" as a tire sealant (something akin to that Slime stuff - but totally different) and have not suffered from a flat tire. True you have to keep your tires propperly inflated. The best advise I can give you is to take a persons' advise with a grain of salt.
