Have to "sabotage" my daughters bike when she isn't looking.
If they are the "slime" tubes bin em, they are not that good and weigh a ton. I have tyres with a kevlar layer in them, have ridden over broken bottles that have slashed the tyre (10mm cut ) down to the kevlar but not puncture, a slime tube would get holed and would not be able to seal such a hole.
