Yeah. I've got flak-jacket tyres, but I'm thinking belt & braces.

Good idea about Amazon.de, actually. I use Amazon.co.uk and they won't ship Slime to Czech. I'll check it out.

The only way that I can get my cordless computer to work, is to mount it on the fork 'bridge' (not sure if that's the correct term - the bit that joins the lower fork tubes, just above the tyre). At...

You're using 2.2 inners in 2.3 tyres? If so, it's not surprising that the tyre is moving around.
