I'm sure they'll get the better of me before long.
The goo is effective. I have picked dozens of doublegees out of my tyres with just one slow leak a week or two back that fixed itself. My goo tubes are no name cheapies but still do the job it seems. Thicker tyres would also work most likely but the Marathon Plus are heavier but not a problem on an electric MTB.
I'm tossing up whether to order some new green slime tubes and just replace the tubes and tyres together...just to be sure.
I will go a month or two sometimes between doublegee attacks but potentially when they happen they could take out both front and rear tyres at the same time. I inspect my tyres after each time I go across natural grass areas and I often inspect tyres two or three times on longer rides for any signs of trouble...troublegee
