I seemed to get flats often in the past riding in the sticks (and locust trees) in Ohio. So I did what you are thinking and added some slime--haven't had a flat in 6 months since using it and one time I *knew* I had rode through a locust patch (long, sharp,spiney thorns) and virtually guaranteed a flat. Maybe they work. I guess the real test will come after more time as passed, but so far so good!

You may notice the front end steering a little slower (theoretic, I didn't notice anything) due to the increased rolling mass, I think you need about 8oz (1/2 lb) of Slime per tire! Or maybe it will add a little flywheel momentum effect--again I didn't notice any change but some riders might.

Hey Scott I live in Tucson real nasty stuff here sharp rocks,cactus, HUGE thorns buy it you won't regret it beats triyng to patch it out in the middle of no where!!! I always put in new tubes when I change tires also put baby powder on the tube, old trick, keeps tube and tire from becomin' one.

I use to use it on my old bike. It worked OK, but I still got a few flats though. Plus, it was a mess when I changed my tires and I had to let the air out of the tube.

In rocks you need more AIR.

From the topic header of this thread, I thought the subject was a political add for Ralph Nader. Green slime would be a good name for the Green Party.

Haven't used the green slime in sometime. Still got flats with it. Changed to using metzler heavy duty tubes about three years ago and have had only 1 flat since. These tubes are great! Or maybe I'm not riding as aggressively???
