Yeah I have heard that ride-on is better but where is a good source for it? I have been unable to find it locally.Slime? No way. RideOn? Only if willing to inspect tires on a regular basis. RideOn will seal a flat, and a foreign object shoved around in the hole only tears up the tube worse, possibly to the point the RideOn will no longer seal the hole.
I went on a dualsport ride with about 125 bikes. Half took advantage of free RideOn. 6 flats that weekend, not a one on a bike with RideOn. One bike developed a leak in a tubeless tire, the rider then installed RideOn, and the rider went ahead and wore the tire out over time with no other repair.
RideOn is water based and can be rinsed off so a punctured tube can be patched, but there is a good chance that a tube that RideOn won't plug is also too far gone to be patched.
I've not had a flat since I began using RideOn, and I've pulled several objects out of my tires over the years.
Hi Rich,What I really wonder is how you guy's with the giant atv tires break the bead trailside to fix...
I am getting ready for 1000 or so miles on the TAT. Last fall I did 300 or so miles of the trail and ended up with several thorns in my front tire. luckly It didn't go flat until I got home. I will give the ride on stuff a try.
