I'm not sure but check out your local wal-mart , they have something called slime. It's either a product before or after a flat.

Check out wal-mart for something called slime. It is a before or after a flat product I think. I was on the run when I saw it. Didn't have much time to really check it out,sorry.

There is a fix a flat equivalent for bicycles. Though, it takes just under two cans to get to the PSI I like in my aired tires.

Where can I find those fix a flat for bicycles? The ones at Walmart "slime" are for before you ride to prevent from having a flat. I want one that can fix a flat when I'm 10 miles away from home. I have a fear of getting a flat tire out on the road more than having engine issues. I can at least pedal home if it's an engine problem. I'm stuck like chuck with a flat tire.

I had to get rid of the pool of leftover slime that was in my tire from the other day. Not wanting to get it all over things, dump it in with the garbage or just pour it away (where I live the environment police would be on me in a heartbeat), I carefully poured it out into a half-jar of (clean) clumping cat litter. It worked like a charm, no liquid made it to the bottom of the jar, and there's a nice little lump in there. The same thing worked with catching a bit of gas out of the line when I went to change fuel lines, too.

Walmart - it looks like a can of fixaflat, but as big as a little Red Bull drink.
