Comments about Slime Thick Smart SV Tubes 26":
Used mostly for city and parks.
I like the idea of leak stop in the tubes. It does stop leaks, but when slime gets in the valve it clogs. Slime started to escape through the valve because I let out pressure when re-seating the tire bead. It dried in a matter of minutes. If pressure was high enough I could fill the tube. (The pressure between the pump and stem was 100 psi, just to get ~40 psi into the tube.) I had to buy a new core and a tool to re-thread the inside of the valve. If you have (or have access to) an air pump, just use regular tubes; patches are easier.
If you want to install and forget for a kids bike, this might be a good choice. It seams like it will hold up to any thing my son wants to jump over, even a dead raccoon. [Like you never did that when you were a kid!]
