I wouldn't call it the lazy man's tube, i would say it is geared to those who don't like to haul a a bag full of tools around, and also to those who have their wheel slammed to the point of breaking a chain to take it off.

yea true i carry a big backpack heavier then me wherever i go ride it'd be nice to have one i mean if you have the money why not? i like the idea if your out riding and need to throw one on quick before it rains or something but if your home with all your tools sitting there bored might as well just use a regular tube

im going to get 2 of those tubes. theyve been in testing for a few years now, so they are strong, and made by flykissing
ill put one in my front to test it out, and keep one for my rear for a spare.
i have my wheel slammed to where i need to break the chain, so its perfect.

I see they are finally being sold! Good idea for the person in a hurry or with the tight chains. But if you still have a normal tube on, and have that new tube for a back up, you would still have to take the wheel all the way off, unless you have somthing to cut the old tube out. You would have to always run one of these to twitch out quick and without taking wheel all the way off, unless you have somthing to cut regular tube out.

It ain't the lazy man's tube. It's for quicker, simpler flat fixes. For rich kids. ...but don't act like you don't want fast easy shit.

it might be for "rich kids", but it will last long, if you just patch it when it gets flat

I want to see how it rolles on the spot where you connect it. Is there going to be any buldges there or low spots.

i dont get how it works???

Um,everyone knows you can patch a tube without taking the wheel off right?Seems like it would be easier to carry a patch kit than a tube.Plus you wouldnt have to cut the old tube in half to get it off.

Honestly I think people are so hell bent on getting a new tube they forget about them.

i get the patches you just stick on without glue. they work great and i don't even have to take my wheel off. 3 bucks and i can fix a flat 20 times. the only time i get a new tube is if it blows up and theres a huge hole.

fly does have a pretty cool idea though.

Actually, they are designed by fly, probably made by Cheng Shin or Kenda (Two biggest tire makers on the planet, they make a majority of all bike tires, just slap a companys name on em after they are designed etc)

the glue on them can wear away, resulting in the patch falling off

if it's on the top though, against the tire, wouldn't the pressure keep it from coming apart?
