    I cut apart an old mtn bike tube today and was only somewhat surprised to find a lump in it. Sure enough the slime had solidified to the point it would place the tire out of balance. Admittedly, Slime has a different formulation for automobile tires (probably what you would use for motorcycles) but they still only recommend it for one year or less. Me I'd ride it home and get a new tube ASAP. Cheers. Tom

    Eeehhwwwww! Good point! Makes me wonder about what happens with the tubes we sell at the hardware store I work at part time. Some of those tubes are "Slime" brand tubes, and claim to have slime pre-loaded in them to prevent punctures. Tubes for wheel barrow's too! A mystery to be answered in slime? m.

    I always thought the ones I had seen all the moistures was gone from it. I wonder if some water was added if that would not happen.
