Slime for Foss Tube
I have thorns in my 36 with a Foss tube. I don't want to take it apart. Can I use slime with that tube? If so, how much?

It would probably take quite a bit of slime--enough that it would be really noticeable as you rode. I only slime my commuter bike's tires (700c with 1" tires), and it definitely affects acceleration and steering. I used the recommended amount--there's a chart on the slime website, I believe.
I know that lots of people use Stan's sealant in tubes instead because it's not as thick and chunky--more of a straight liquid--so it takes less of it to keep the inner tube coated. It also apparently works very well. I've just never had any to try, myself, but had a gallon-sized bottle of slime already in my garage.
Edit to add: I have no experience with the Foss tube, so take what I say with a grain of salt (or perhaps a whole bag of it!).

I would not use Slime. I would patch it properly. You don't have to take the uni apart. Just deflate tire and pop enough tire off the rim to get to the area where the hole is.
