Tx A-MX, enduro tube liners it will be, never thought of that really.

I remember seeing a plastic liner for mountain bikes a while ago, is there anything like that available for bikes?
Silence is golden...... Duct tape is silver

Everything works with smoke, if the smoke escapes, it stops working.

When you wash your bike, pigs will fly :biggrin:

Cool, I'm in, but this time I'm packing a tow strap :P

i used to use them in my Mountainbike,  worked brilliantly.   Have been thinking along those lines too.   ! reckon 2 rolls per tyre,  duct taped together with a slight overlap (taped together along the length),  and bob's yer uncle.   I reckon a nail would bend before going through the liner...

also a hell of a lot lighter than an enduro tyre as the liner.
