slim is the bomb

I love slime, can I just tell you. Over these years and the many flats. I think the only thing that has helped me is slime. I was wondering what majority of people use slime? I'm not a pro at biking, but I love it and love the opinions of those who bike a lot. Thanks.

Until you get your first flat with it. Then it is a mess. I had slime tubes when I first got my bike and I will never but that garbage on my bike again. I would rather learn to avoid flats and fix them when I need to.

Slime usually gets thoroughly trashed on BF though. All I know is I haven't flatted in ages. No high dollar tires either. And yes, I've repaired tubes with slime in them. Big deal. Wipe it off...continue.
