I know a few folks carrying a Tubolito and I give them a pass because A) they're running single-ply tires to save weight because they're trying to win the climbs on old-fat-slow-people rides and flats happen and B) they have more money than sense (they know who they are and read the comments so Love You Guys!). In all seriousness, if you're strapping a tube to your bike a few grams don't matter. There's probably even a decent argument to go with something heavier duty to try and avoid a second flat situation. Personally, I'm running ridiculous-heavy real-sidewall rubber (WTB Heavy Duty casings) in high volume sizing (2.8" or 2.6") and carry plugs. If I smoke something hard enough that I can't air my tire back up I'm hopefully still walking out. On my hardtail (where rear wheel dents happen more regularly) I'm running 334-grams of [**Plus-Sized Cush Core**]( both front and rear and I'll be riding out flat (it works surprisingly well) with anything I can't repair.
