Glad I'm not the only one thinking that
Urmmm, slime innertubes are apolitical I think.

It was a really weird political comment, nothing to do with the item. They were posting it in every thread this morning.
Are these any good and do they actually work and prevent you getting flat tyres or do they just gunk up the inside of your tyre when anything punctures it?
I've used Slime in to standard inner tubes and think it works very well, apart from a massive thorn, I've not had any punctures!

Having read a fair bit about slime, it seems it is good if you get pin prick punctures, for instance from riding over fine thistles or such, but not if you have something thicker go through like a bramble thorn. Having tried myself, I got incredibly unlucky on my first one, I somehow hit a screw on the road and got a serious puncture just days after fitting one with slime in it and it made a mess of the tyre as well when removing, I then got a puncture from a thick thorn a couple of weeks later on the replacement. I have since gone for a proper reinforced tyre on the rear (being where the weight it) and that has been great for me, front may get a reinforced tyre when it needs replacing too but so far no problems like this. It certainly can't hurt to use slime especially at this price, but consider the tyres as well if you are commuting on it.
