I mean, surely it can't be that hard?
and not riding bicycles.
thing that would not need a replacement that needs to be purchased.
What are you? some sort of hippy nature loving commie faggot?
such as these ones filled with goo which 'fill in' the puncture when it occurs http://www.wiggle.co.uk/slime-self-healing-road-inner-tube/
or these which are solid http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2809365/The-PUNCTURE-PROOF-bike-tyre-Solid-wheel-contains-no-air-ride-nails-shattered-glass.html
The problem is they don't work properly, are too heavy or too expensive. It simply makes more sense to protect the tyre. A lot of people are using tubeless tyres for certain things now. (Its not really anything to do with rinsing the consumer, sorry creaky, the bike industry manages to do that in plenty of other ways. Inner tubes are hardly the most lucrative aspect of bikes)
it was more of an excuse to say
"What are you? some sort of hippy nature loving commie faggot?"
to someone else, rather than it being directed at me.
