dual valve stem tires

tubless tires with emergency tube inside
  [vote for,

tubeless tires with a vaccuum deflated tube inside attatched to a second valve stem for emergency inflation.

       Cool idea.

       I will bun it for the cleverness, however, how would you prevent the innertube from being punctured by the object that originally flattened the tire? I suppose this could work for the type of tire puncture that does not leave a foreign object behind as in the case of backing over one of those spike strips that they use in parking lots to prevent you from backing up at the gate.

       A tubless tire with a tube is still a tire with a tube.

       Yes, if you can ensure that the limp inner tube that has been rattling around in there for 10,000 miles has not rubbed and worn through. [+]

       This is good. The inner tube could be of some material (or of some topology) such that it would cling to the wheel and not contact the tyre until inflated.
