What's an Endurotube?

Think he means the tyre inner tube, and wrapping the tube with another tube to prevent puncture

Just get yourself some Michelin UHD tubes - these are 4mm thick rubber and you will not get a puncture

I do use the UHD tubes and get punctures from thorns where I ride so need to replace them at cost! all the time . Looking for a cheaper alternative - Wrapping a standard tube with a UHD and saving money.

I use a 6 mm tube by the way.

What about using a Moose foam insert instead of a tube? If you do any kind of high speed highway riding, it's probably not an option though.

considered tougher tires? 2 extra plys built into a good desert or dualsport tire (6ply vs 4ply mx tire)

If you're getting frequent punctures on a 6mm thick tube then they are some serious thorns, and I wouldn't like to take a tumble where you ride!

Swap to a moose and your problems will be solved

moose is not an option due to price! . i just wanted to know is there are guys on here that uses this setup, I am not looking for options or alternatives as I know them all , mooses , tubless, enduro tubes , tennisballs in the front and rear , tyre balls .

Yes you read right tennisballs in the tyres works well , and much cheaper than tyreballs, just dont last long.

thanks anyway.

If you get thorn punctures in 4 mm tubes where you ride you better hope you never fall or you'll bleed to death!!!

Seriously, though, any tube-within-a-tube is going to generate a TON of heat and destroy itself in short order, like your tennis balls do. In this case to ride where you want to ride you need to get a mousse or you're going to keep getting punctures, money or not. Watch the classifieds, sell your body, 3rd job, whatever, but it will pay for itself after a short time.

This is not a cheap sport and to play you gotta play; but know dirt is far cheaper than street. I used to work 3 or more jobs a time to afford tires and track days, proper dirt tires last a long time compared to track tires which can go in a weekend at $300 a set.
