I mounted a Tufo Elite that I had sitting around and want to do some trail riding. I'll be close to home so I won't be too screwed if I shred something, but there are goat-heads around here so I want to put in some sealant. I have NoTubes on hand. Should I use this or wait for some Tufo sealant?

Stan's should be fine. I managed to plug up a fairly large hole in a Flexus for a while -- until I tore the sidewall in an unrelated incident.

I plugged a 2mm hole with stan's in a schwalbe stelvio, which is made by tufo. it kinda holds air - the hole pops out at 95 psi.
I've see that happen with Stan's. Works fine up to a certain pressure and then all heck breaks loose. Can you superglue a larger hole like that in galvanized tubulars?

All I really need is 25 psi for an hour. :thumbsup:

superglue? hmmm I should try that. I have a useless tire that can't be repaired otherwise.

as a sidenote, i am going to avoid seamless tires going forward. it's a stupid idea.

Stans contains platelet-like particles that are meant to accumulate in the puncture so the latex goop can form a decent seal. The trick is to hold the bottle of Stans upside down for long enough that the little solid bits actually make it into the tire.

Glitter is a great idea though. And how pretty!

Galvanized, eh?

I've only run the anodized or the stainless steel. Where does one procure these galvanized tires? Insert stupid smiley for those not associated with gentle sarcasm.

I think the thing word is vulcanized. (Like Spock!)

Just busting your chops a bit. No malice intended.

LOL.

Vulcanized. The ones without the cloth casing, which makes them impractical to Martinize. :D
