Date Reviewed: December 6, 2004

Strengths:    Price and lightweight

Weaknesses:    Valve stem

Bottom Line:   
After about 3 km of riding, the valve stem broke off. Well, I usually run 45psi. If you ride in hard surfaces whith this pressure in tubes, don´t use this ones. I´ll give 2 chilis because it could be good for guys that use lower pressure in it.

Strengths:    Light

Weaknesses:    Blows quite easily

Bottom Line:   
OK to be used on fronts. Rear blows easily(unless you really pump it up). Micelin(standards) on rear. Other than taht, this is a really good and high quality tube for not too much.

Bottom Line:   

I've tried all the glueless patches, there is only one original glueless patch and it is still the best regardless of what other idiots say! SPEEDPATCH rules!!! They invented it and others copied it. Ask Missy, Tinker, Ned, Johnny T. 5 Star all the way.

Bottom Line:   

I bought a bunch of these tubes from Nashbar about a year ago. Within 3 months my flat tire repair time improved 3 fold. What does it take to get this good? Practice, Practice, Practice! Try the Torelli's. I've had much better luck with them (3 months - no flats).

Bottom Line:   

I bought these tubes last year. The idea was, because they are so lightweight, I make a small slit in the tube and then put in a couple ounces of green slime, then use a rema patch to fix the hole. (If you buy a presta slime tube it's got 8 ounces of the stuff in it already). So I get the beneifts of the slime without the weight. Been over a year and absolutly no flats! Try it sometime, it actually works! Just make sure you use glue-on rema patches, and not those crappy instant peices of junk (speedpatch, etc...)

Bottom Line:   

These are the best butyl tubes I have ever used. They only weigh 115 grams. I have never had a flat. They do not loose air
like latex. They cost only 4.99 at Bike Nashbar. What more could you ask for???
