Luckily, it was not needed
Same story here... why is that?
I don't know why my unconscious always prevent me from buying a second one...

1cool, how Slime performs at high speeds?
I always used it for my enduro bikes, but I have this doubt about the speed...

I only take a hand pump. You can easy seat a bead with them, remember they are design to put 100psi+ into bicycle tyres, thats more than most petrol station pumps will go to.

It's true that it's given me more smiles per mile than any other I've owned. Jesse bags go on next month, can't wait til spring but I'll have to.

Is this a can of Slime after a flat or are you trying some sort of tubeless set up? I'm assuming tubeless since I don't see one

It looks like you're using the "plain" Slime without the black bits in it. From what I've read, the "ATV Slime" is better at stopping bigger holes.

There's also lots of talk in mountain bike forums about "ghetto tubeless" and "Wade's Secret Sauce". Basically, a mixture of latex mold builder, propylene glycol (rv antifreeze), glitter (particles to help seal bigger holes) and plain Slime.

If this helps, great! If not, ignore

I'm interested to hear if it was a surprise too.

We knew there was supposed to be some rain or snow, and we for sure knew it would be cold. I think there was about 5 or 6 inches of snow, which was a bit more than we thought we would have, but no big deal, it did make the ride out more interesting.
