extra wide tire liners?
My son has an Electra Straight 8 with 20"x3.0" 'Fatty-0' tires. I've had to repair flats multiple times (once it was both tires at the same time!) and ended up replacing both tubes. Each time I check for thorns (the usual culprit is about 1/4 to 1/2 an inch long) and pull all I find. I've been looking for 3 inch wide liner tape, but so far haven't found any. Does anyone know of a brand I can look for?
I know I can use Slime, but I hate that stuff, having had to clean it out of many valve stems.
Any other ideas? Believe me, my wife and I have looked all over for where he's picking up these massive thorns, and have no clue.
