    If you ever go through that many you might want to investigate some different options for flat protection. For the price of 50 quality tubes you can get two nice tires (or set up tubeless, if that's your cup of tea) that will be better suited for your trail conditions.

    Patch kit: 6 fixed tubes for the price of 1. I have at least 4 patchs on some of my tubes.

    Why are you getting so many flats? That's the first question to ask.

    I'm with the others. Figure out the cause of all the flats (embedded debris in the tire, too low pressure, etc) first and then learn to use a patch kit.

    Agreed, figure out the cause. Then consider Stan's or Cafe Latex for tubeless or ghetto tubeless.
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    You can just buy some for yourself in a smaller quantity along with a killer patch kit. PricePoint has a set of 5 at a pretty reasonable price. When I was using tube I bought a set it lasted me a few years. You are thinking about more than 3 times that amount, how long do you think it would last.

    Bite the bullet and go tubeless it would cost much less.

    BTW, like everyone else said you need to find the cause of your flats, if it's pinch flat due to under inflation you'd be changing the tube on every rides.
