    I don't use slime on my road bike and based on what I've read about it, I don't intend to. But I do have tires that are set up tubeless on my mountain bike with Stan's sealant and they are great. ...

    It can be pretty stressful to ride around busses in large cities. My current commute is mostly through a suburban area, with a small city/downtown section. I almost never have bus problems now.
