    Slime lite tubes?

    Anyone used a 26" slime lite tube in their 29er? I have heard of people using 26" tubes before. If not, can you tell me your favorite tubes? I was going to go tubeless, but have the velocity rims and mythos, and the other thread about the blowout is scaring me. Any 29" protective rim liner's out there? Thanks

    Schwalbe supposedly makes a 29"er tube with a removable valve core. Remove the core, squirt in sealant commonly found at any auto parts store, reinstall valve, and continue as normal. I've also read about folks poking a hole in a tube, adding sealant and then patching.
