Has anyone tried slime inner tubes in 700c.Do they feel normal/not slow and heavy.They sound like a good thing on MTB's and if they ride normal could be good news on a road bike i hope.

I'm not sure if this is the same, but i had two new inner tubes loaded with slime last year in prep for JOGLE. All in all i had 3,000 miles of puncture free mileage from them last year and never really felt any differences in 'feel'. Clearly there is some sot of weight/performance trade-off otherwise everybody wpuld be doing it, but for recreational/touring i'd say no brainer. That said i'm doing London-Paris in a couple of weeks without slime so fingers crossed!
