Strengths:    The tubes smell good when they leak. I notice that because they are always freakin' leaking.

Weaknesses:    These things are always flat. I have gotten flats on 9/17 rides with these things.

Bottom Line:   
It's obviously user error that I keep sticking with these things but my lovable LBS carries only these. I ride in Austin, TX, so there are some sharp & pointies, but I've ridden with other tubes without the same level of problems. I run 30 PSI, but have had problems at higher and lower pressures.

I've had it all with these things:
* pinch flats
* punctures from thorns & rocks
* stabs from spoke holes

I can't believe that I stuck with these things for so long, I should have switched tubes much earlier.

Strengths:    I guess if you want big thick tubes that are no better than regulars they're perfect?

Weaknesses:    big honken' weight, not as burly as they'd have you believe

Bottom Line:   
I got 2 rides at Versailles SP in Indiana before I noticed slouch in my front tire...hmm...ate lunch...tire now flat. I thought "Sheisse! I put that on wrong and pinched the tube." (2 days before I had retired my old Mythos {red sidewall}and gotten the new ones so I replaced the tubes as well)

I got the tire off that night and found not 1, nor 2, but 4 thorns had come through the tire and subsequently the tube. I walked the trail back to the truck and passed two th0rny stems laying over the trail, well they should be tougher than that...*sigh*
just run Mr. Tuffy tire liners and light tubes.
Lesson learned.

Maxxis Welter Weight

Do any of you run these tubes on bigger 2.5 tires (specifically minion fronts) they only come in 26x2.1 but ive heard they stretch to fit however im worried about them getting too thin and pinchflatting too easy. Any opinions? CRC says in the description made with the dh racer in mind blah blah blah ... Read More »
