    bombproof tubes?

    well i am going with some armadillo slicks for the streets, but wanted to match them with some reliable puncture resistant tubes. i want to stay away from the slime stuff. anyone use the michelin air+ tubes? i am a little leery after reading so many negative reports on the tires as of late...

    Use a set of downhill tubes, they will add some weight but they are well worth it.

    I use Kenda (they come in Avenir boxes). They're 100% worth it.

    I only get flats from the belts on my tires busting and poking the tube. I've NEVER had these tubes go down during a ride.

    hmm.

    anyone use the bontrager thorn resistant or the michelin air +? i am a little hesitant to go with the michelin since i have heard so many horror stories about their tires on the board.
