Just recently was forced out of an MT bike Event due to flat tires 3 times in 15 minutes
first time , thought it was just a pinch, so just simply tossed the tube and replaced it (front tire)
then within riding for 4 minutes that tire went flat again, i look at tire and found a very fine thorn in my tire, (should have checked my tire prior) anyways used my second spare tube to fix it
then with 5 minutes of riding, my rear tire went
so i was out of tubes and basically had a long long walk out of the bush back to civilization
After a check of that tire , it was a small thorn, now my tires i kept at 35 to 40 psi
but what can i do to prevent thorns?
Would using slime in my tube work? or any other strategies? thanks
