    I doubt it's the product. what product is it?

    1. keep your tires inflated to the correct amount. it should say on the side of the tire what the proper amount of air is to keep in it.
    2. don't run into sharp/hard objects if you can avoid it.
    3. check to see if you have glass or a nail or something in your tires.

    if you type in english that is easier to read, then you might get better answers quicker....

    also, it's spelt "tube".

    WWE?.... and just buy a patch kit, they are like $2 and you can patch your tube like 8 times, it's alot better then buying new tubes.

    I hate patch kits.
    Just find $5 in your couch, and go buy new tubes.

    patch kits rock. you don't have to even remove your wheel, just pull the tire off, pull the tube out, patch, check the tire for whatever gave you the flat, shove tube back in, pump up and ride.

    Speaking of tubes, and being lazy and not taking your wheel off to change them:

    What do you people think of the Fly Cobra tubes...

    They will be out soon i think...

    According to most of the Fly riders and their updates on the site, they work fine, and i dont see how either, but there not going to put something like that on the market if it sucked.
