Without the option of going tubeless what is the tube set up? I have heard slime, etc. What do you folks do to make you tubes last?

I had two flats today...only about 60 miles on the tires / tubes....I need something that is thorn proof...lol

I use slime tubes. They are HEAVY, but i haven't had a flat since i've been using them for the past 3 years. I tried tubeless and the weight savings was nice, but prefer tubes for the simplicity and not having to worry about burping.

I had horrible problems with thorns when I first picked up my 29er since I come from riding dirt bikes where you can ride through any size blackberry bush and never worry about it penetrating the tire/tube. I picked up a set of nylon liners that go between the tube and tire. Haven't got a flat since. Your LBS shop should have some.
