    Yeah, end of pinch flats....... Would be nice, Oh wait I forgot I run proper air pressure and dont get pinch flats.


    Seriously though, it would be cool to see some tubes made from that material, I bet they would sell like hotcakes in the mtn bike world. Only question I would have is what would they weigh, you know how the weight weenies are, I mean really, I have a guy who comes in for tubes, and brings his little scale, and weighs each and every tube to get the lightest tubes we have in stock.........





    P.S. I just found out I have a set of THE rims and hubs waiting for me to build up at the shop when I go in next.....I think I am going to cry
