I use these on all of my bikes....from grocery getter to mtb.....to ease my mind ,worrying about the dreaded flat.
Easy to fit and install....no having to cut to length cause they come in numerous sizes to choose from. Flexable yet strong along contact patch,no sharp edges to sand down or cut. Great product.
Usually get six to eight flats a year. Decided to give the Tuffy's a try. So far no flats, have about 550 miles on them so far. I use them on my training bike where I am not concerned about weight. They are easy to install and have had no flats.
After several years riding with these liners, I can remember only 1 flat. The only time I take tires off anymore is to put on new ones. I easily go up to 4,000 miles without a flat. Also, if someone wasn't told they were in there and rode the bike they would never be able to tell the difference.
I ride my Catrike recumbent 15-20 miles/day. The recurring flats picked up from riding on the local farm roads were happening several times a week. I remembered using the Mr. Tuffy liners on a mountain bike quite a few years ago. I installed them on the two 20 front wheels and no more flats! I bought a liner for my 26 rear wheel but haven't installed it yet because flats haven't been an issue with the rear yet. (Different tube/tire on the rear..) I won't hesitate to put it on at the first sign of trouble. I no longer head out to the garage for my morning ride to find my trike listing with a flat. Don't the let the weight of these liners scare you away.
Installing liners took about 30 minutes, partially inflated tube helps to keep the liner centered on tire tread. No more stress about seeing and avoiding road puncture hazards on those dark rainy nights. Have been riding with tire liners since 1982 on both Mountain and Road bikes now have them on my Hybrid, Over 30 years without a flat due to a puncture! Here's a tip if you get sidewall damage due to a pinch or sharp object slit you can deflate and shift liner to the side of the tire between the tube and the damage inflate and RIDE back!
Rather than going tubeless I opted to install these liners. They do stop some problems but not all - I don't get nearly as many flats as I was getting before I put these in. A bit difficult to work with - especially out on the trail.
I've owned several bicycles over the years and I've always used tire liners and have never had a flat tire with them between my tire and tube. terrific product glad they are on the market and available to everyone.
If you hate flat tires, here's your solution.
If you don't race and would rather ride than change flats these liners are the way to go. I have them on all my bikes and I have only had 1 flat in 15 years. The flat was caused by a staple that went through the sidewall, missing the tuffy liner.
Simply amazing - not one flat. I dug two pieces of glass out of my tires that would surely have caused a flat prior to the installation of the liners. But due to having the liners on - they prevented the glass from puncturing my tires. I commute more than 100 miles a week through some of Portland's worst streets and roads, so these liners get a test every day. And every day they stay Tuffy...
I was plagued w flats on my commuter bike so I pulled the trigger on the standard wt. Tuffy's. It was easy to put on and didn't really notice additional rolling resistance (my tires are already large 700 x 42). I only have few hundred miles on these but wo them I'd had a flat by now so I'm sure these are working like it suppose to. I like them so much that I bought the lighter versions for my road bike. So if you're getting more flats than you deserve slap these on enjoy the ride.
