    Anyone here use tire liners?

    For those who still use tubes. I know liners add a bit of weight, but is it all worth it? I use a Slime brand liner with a Maxxis Ultralight wrapped in a Michelin XC Dry[2] tire. The liner weighs in at 81.6g. Are there lighter liners?

    NoTubes wheelset, so I dont need it. Even if I didnt have Stan's I would never dream of tire liners.

    You're kidding, right? I think you've wandered into the wrong forum...

    if you use a tire liner you should also use a thorn resistant tube or the liner can tear through the tube very quickly.
