Strengths:    These FORTE branded tubes work fine as long as you pump them with a standard floor pump before the ride, honestly not any more punctures than any other tube brand

Weaknesses:    While using a Crank Brothers mini pump on my last trail ride to put a bit more air in one of these tubes, I cracked the valve completely in half. I didn't think aluminum or brass or whatever kind of obviously weak metal they use for tubes was supposed to break so easily. I'm strong, but come on.

Bottom Line:   
So about half an inch of brass valve was still on the tube, the rest was in my hand along with the lock ring. The break was just at the end of the lockring. I didn't think I even manhandled the pump and presta valve either. Oh well.
