    Pumptures - What's Your Approach?

    If it seems too good to be true, it probably is...

    I took more than 10 minutes to enter poll options... Had to start again.

    Who uses sealants? Are they the best thing since sliced bread? Unless I try for myself, there's only innernet reports to go on, and the innernet says everything from "I wouldn't ride without sealant in my tyres" to "sealant ruined my marriage".

    But of course a Tosser can be trusted - he's not your typical innernet troll prone to spouting shite about stuff he knows nothing about...

    I'm thinking more here about when you're away on awesome adventures rather than heading out for a local spin.

    My mate Nicky used to get them all the time on his bicycle. He pezumed it was bad luck, but we figured out it was the rim tape - I had pacifically told him to check it but he never did.

    I use PunctureSafe (new name for Wellseal). It stopped a leak caused by an M6 bolt and when I took tyre for permanent repair, the tyre tech asked why I was bothering.

    If the hole is too big for the goo to stop at least it slows the rate of deflation.

    At least he didn't call a puncture a puncher which is the usual mistake made by Estuary English speakers.

    Glad I didn't type puncture like that it would have set off the resident spelling police in to a group wankfest.

    I have been tubeless for many years (mtb) and am tubeless on the road too. The only arse ache is a small tear from something like a piece of flint. Still carry spare tubes and had to use one last week for the first time in donkey's ....

    I asked my mechanic's opinion on Goop, etc.

    He says while they work, there's stuff in them that can corrode the inside of the rim.

    Good enough for me - pumpture repair kit and 12V pump packed anyway...
