One of the best accessories for any bike you can buy in my opinion is a product called No-Mor-Flats.
Once you install them, you never buy another tube. Only tires.
What promped this instructable that one of the falisies is that they are difficult to install.
Which couldn't be farther from the truth.
Installing No-Mor-Flats will take you about 15 minutes if that long if done properly.
I've installed them on every bike I've owned, 7 so far, over the past ten years and I love them.
They came in every size one could image for every tire size out there.
Unfortunatly Bell, who purchased No-More-Flat, has quit manufacturing them at the time of this writing. But...
There are still some around and in stock at certain locations of Walmart!
- so check your local Walmart to se if they still have some in stock..
And / or you may find them at a local Fleamarket or
Online at E-bay such as here and here
or listed on Craigslist.
Amazon has them listed here
Even the original site No-Mor-Flats still has limited stock available
and i just found The Great Hardware Store online doing a search has them listed as well
Cost... I paid around $26.00 at Walmart each for the 26in. I have.
And i've seen them for less depending on the tire size.
And they are well worth it.
They never go flat - never go soft. You always have a fully inflated tire.
You or your kids will never get a flat and have to walk home.
No flats anymore while out on a bike a trail or 10 miles from home.
Or while pulling that baby buggy you're towing - incliuding the baby buggy
No risk of flats - Period!
So get them while there's some still at Walmart or on Ebay / Craigslist or what have you.
And follow along as i show you how easy it is to install them.
And they are packaged quite differently just so you know
The newest package is the Bell Blue package with the two bike riders and says... Bell in big letters (go figure)
The original packaging is simply the Red White and Blue and packaged like a car radiator belt
Some where in between Cyclo the original manufacturer made a Yellow package (last package pic)
They are all the same product.
And i want to point out agbout the install
- I installed the one in this instructable by myself, while taking the pictures for the instructable.
So how hard can it be?
- I installed this one essentually one handed through out most of the process.
