Tried and binned these they just didn't work, didn't seal and shot green gloop out when holed. The only filled inner tubes I found that offered protection was Dr Sludge, I pulled half a dozen thorns from a mountain bike tyre at the end of one winter and the tube remained inflated.

100% agree with this statment

I'm pretty sure the Wilko own brand tyre sealant is rebadged Dr Sludge. £3.99 per bottle - does two tyres. Not had a puncture since using it.

I use puncture proof tyres instead, weigh slightly more but work perfectly =)

Had one of these before..lasted about 6 months. But one puncture just wouldn't seal..it did get me through a couple of days when I just didn't have the time or cash to get a new tube

That was my experience of Slime too, completely useless. I'll give Dr Sludge a try, hadn't heard of that before.

Already posted I think.

I found that slime and Dr sludge would perform about the same for me, but the valve on the Dr sludge was a weak point: would bend far too easily, leading to early replacement.

i tried slime, but it didn't work for me, useless..

they work for thorns etc but anything bigger the hole usually doesn't seal

also depends on the outside temperature, they're better than nothing but best off spending more on a pair of schwalbes

Book your children on the summer cycle maintainence for kids sessions, ..then leave em to get on with it whilst you stare tearfully into space at the lost youth that raising a family has brought upon you.

Try a Schwalbe tyre with built in protection.

Sure it's heavy but but most thorns won't get through.

Check your tyre pressures too.

Or....
Go TUBELESS!
Or if your feeling brave, Ghetto tubeless.
Buy some sealant and some rim tape (or even electrical tape) and set up some tubeless wheels. Incredibly puncture proof. There is a reason why CX riders use them so much. Plus you can run about 18psi on them without risking much so great traction.

Just had my first puncture with these tubes!! Watched as tyre gurgled out the slime! Left it to settle down as it sealed!! Blew tyre back up! And carried on for 15 more miles! Still up this morning! Tyre has. 1/4 gash in. But tube still holding! The future for tubes!!!
