Strengths:    made for bigger wider tires over 2.3. Hold pressure pretty good and don't have to inflate them EVERYTIME you go out. I use IRC Kujo DH tires with the pinch resistant foam and so far have never had a pinch flat, and i abuse my wheels/tires pretty bad.

Weaknesses:    little heavier than other brands but hey, its made for DH tires.

Bottom Line:   
These are made for DH use so they are barely a little heavier. I've used them with IRC kujo tires for 3 months and no pinch flats at all with constant abuse.They hold tube pressure pretty well so you don't have to worry about refilling them EVERYTIME you go out for a ride. They are specifically designed for bigger/wide tires, 2.3-2.7. Trust me when i say they are worth it. My tires have the pinch resistant foam so that may explain the no flats but the tubes keep my tires hard and strong. Good investment. great for DH,DJ,FR and even XC.

Strengths:    Big and "burly"

Weaknesses:    It popped too soon.

Bottom Line:   
This tube got pinch flats way too soon. Over simple rock gardens it went flat, and over small 6ft drops. For the weight I would have expected it to last longer

Strengths:    I bourght this around 3 months ago, and i havent had A puncture yet! I can ride hard, with no problems, yet trust my back-end.

Weaknesses:    A bit heavy, but its a dh tube, not light xc.

Bottom Line:   
Ive got an intense dh 2.35 tire f+b, whith this stuff by slime which goes inbetween the tire and the tube. it adds on a bit of weight but i aint no weak guy who needs a super light bike that feels like it could break under pedeling. If you do dh, trials or jumpind, and you want the best, go for these. You do get a lotta rubber for the money (and believe me, thats a lot of rubber).

fits tires

valve stem tears off; expensive

Bottom Line:   
The valve stem tore away from tube rendering usless after a very short period of time. 2.75-3.00 x 21 motorcycle tubes work much better and are half the price.

Lyrik DH solo air steer tube creak

I had a terrible creak in my headset last week. I took the bike in today and the LBS is saying the steer tube on my Lyrik is creaking at the steer tube/crown area. They said its actually loose. The fork is a 2010. Is this common or has anyone heard of this happening?Read More »

Steer tube length on a DH bike

I am new to DH biking, thus my question. I usually have between 7.5 to 8 inches of steer tube length on my xc bike. I wonder if this rule also apply for a DH bike, or does DH bike requires a shorter steer tube length? Does the length of steer tube has any noticable impact to the riding of the bike ... Read More »
