No doubt, of the many flat tires that I have had, Slime may have help in some small percentage. But I can't think of any that it would have helped, because those were just a roadside repair, then I drove off, non-event for me.
PH , you are looking for a magic fix that probably doesn't exist . Sometimes reality isn't pleasant . Dusty
PH , no such thing as 100 % insurance against flats . Right now you are spooked due to having 2 flats in close succession , but chances are you can ride another 50K miles and not have another flat . That said , I think Lannis has been running tube type slime as a precaution with success . It will somewhat increase unsprung weight , and maybe even degrade ride quality a bit . Everything is a trade off . Dusty
How, realistically, do you change a rear flat on an 800-pound FLSTC with bags that don't come off? That's my reality. How do you do that by the side of the road?
the best solution is modify the rims and go tubeless. ;-T
if you are concerned about flats on your touring bike, for gods sake, get tubeless tires. half the time you will not know you have a nail until you see it. other times they will slowly deflate. carry a plug kit and means to inflate. no laying the bike on its side, no getting terribly filthy, no long delays or tows. If you must have wire wheels, then look into one of the many methods for making them tubeless if they are not.
The only time I really needed it was when I picked up a nail which tore the tube, nothing would have worked for that.
No no no. I heard on the internit that someone used it and didn't have a flat. That proves it always works. :bowDoesn't it? :BEER:
