Default Re: Tire Sealants: Do They Really Work?

I use the Slime tubes from Walmart. One of my last few rides, I had a 1" roofing staple puncture the tire. Didnt even know it until I got home and saw it sticking out of the tire. The slime sealed up the tire well enough to get me home. Then, after pulling the staple out, it took me a few days to get the tube changed out, so I just topped it off with air before I went out. Found that the slime continued to seal up the tube as I rode. Eventually, the tube held air like new again.

I'd highly recommend one of these kinds of tubes. really makes flats less of a problem and more of a to-do item for next weekend.
