[QUOTE=madhouse]Speaking from a LBS mechanic stand point... Slime Sucks! We reluctantly sold the stuff. .... I know of bike shops that won't change a tire/tube if they contain the stuff.[QUOTE]

Why? I understand that slime is a bit messy and makes it very hard to repair the tube. But is this a problem if you simply toss out the old tube and install a new one?

BTW, I have never used slime and get on average 0,5-2 flats per year, but I don't live in a got-head region. As a tourer, I prefer to be able to easily repair my flats, but if I lived in gothead country, I might think otherwise.
