Hi Ya'll

I have an old road bike from the day. Tires were 27 X 1 1/4. Now they're 700? So I got a new rear wheel and it smurfed up the rear brake deal, but I compensated. However, I was buying tubes and I saw the "Slime" tubes in a 700 28-35. When I talked to the counter-person he said I would need a 700 35-43.

Tell me please, 1. How do those numbers work.
2. Is the "Slime" deal any good.

I had a 2 flat day on the way to work, so I'm looking for some good news. Is anyone using a CO2 inflater?

Peace,


Mark

Dont know anything abot the 700 tubes but the slime tubes do work. ran over something that went through tire an tube and the only way I knew it was the bright green slime that sprayed out the hole in the tire. Saw it when I was putting my bike inside. Kept me from having to set on the side of the road patching a tube.

am a fan of the slime - and you can now get lighter weight slime tubes. I run them with Kevlar tires. Haven't had to deal with a flat on the rides since.
