Their Forté tubes (road) are the worst. They are thin and have a couple of them went flat during a ride. Returned the other 2 (buy 3 get 1 free) and now I use exclusively q-tubes.

Naw, either you used 0 protection, installed it wrong, or received a bad batch. I never had any problems after learning to install tubes properly. Always use some kind of rim tape if you want to have 0 problems on the road

Anyone have experience on the Slime Tubes? The reviews I found are more on the positive side and it's only about $1 more per tube.

You can add slime to any tube including presta with a non removable core with some easy hack. For $1 more, probably worth it to just buy the slime tube.

I've personally never used slime on anything under 37 width and pressure above 65psi.
I've used slime tubes and slime in my own tubes them with good luck on 700x37 and wider and also on my 26 and 27.5 bikes. It has sealed up small holes that would have left me with a flat without the slime. Although slime can fill a hole without you knowing and get you home, it should not be considered a permanent fix. You should still inspect and correctly patch any holes before going out again. A slime patched hole can and does randomly break through and leak if the bike sits for a while and existing holes can get larger over time unless they are patched.


Sister company Nashbar has various Nashbar branded tubes on sale for $3.39-5.39 with free shipping

Also some Continentals in the $5 range.

I work on my own bikes for years so I know how to install a tube. However, the first one was installed by the spin doctor at a local store so I guess he knew what he was doing.

The problem I had a few years ago with several Forte tubes is that the valve stems started leaking where they joined the tubes. I've successfully changed many 700c presta tubes over the past 40 years, so please don't chalk this up to installer error. I almost never have had this problem with other brands.
I don't intend to ever use Forte tubes again, unless I see evidence that they have corrected this problem.
