Calm down, ladies

It's just a poll to see what people choose and what seems to be the most popular option. No need to get your panties in a twist before it even starts

I've been static balancing my wheels (sans tires) and throwing tires on them since 1972, never had a vibration/balance issue except for a few that were way out of round.

What is ride on?

Is it what I do, put the tire on the rim and ride on it?

I've never balanced a bike tire. I wonder if that's why I keep falling down.

I balance the tires on my Chevy cobalt, everything else I mount the tires myself and just run them like that.

I've had Dyna beads in my kenda big blocks for about 4k miles they ride smooth as silk at high speeds, 80-100mph. Love Dyna beads

Using them in the tubes of my XC as well for the first time. Smooth as silk, but they're a bitch to get in the tube!

It's easy-measure them out,place clear tube on valve stem with schrader removed,tip btl of beads then gently tap the tube with a small screwdriver while they merrily roll in. Static makes for the tapping needed.

Question

Any thoughts on tires losing balance during sudden acceleration or deceleration while using dynabeads. Always been something I've been curious about, as a sudden change in speed would move where the beads are inside the tire

Well, every time you start and stop rolling, the dynabeads move. So they are never in the same place.

But you must remember they have been imbued with magical powers before they are sold to you. So by the ancient ways, they find the light spot in the tire and congregate there immediately to provide perfect dynamic balancing at all times.

I have been using them for quite some time and then forgot to put them in my front tire the last time I changed them. I still had a glass smooth ride. This had me doubting whether I was buying snake oil or not. Although I'm still not 100% convinced, take a look at this video, it at least lends credence to what they're saying.

After using Dyna beads for several years I find that they make me crash every time I decelerate or stop...
