Was pottering around the new Decathalon shop and picked up one of these

description is pretty sparse but i take it its meant to fix a p****ture without having to take the wheel off/tube out?

Anyone got any experience of these 'cause if it means I can fix a puncture to get me home easily in the cold n rain I'll be delighted after my troubles chaning tubes on a ride so far.

  • Depends on type of puncture etc, how effective the sealant will be. If it does not work then you still need to fit new tube/ fix puncture. More and more new cars come with sealant instead of spare wheels.

    I use a similar product called Vittoria Pit stop. Seems to work OK as long as you follow the instructions
    Genesis Croix de Fer - my new commuting mount
    Saracen Hytrail - the workhorse - now pensioned off
    Kinetic-One FK1 roadie - the fast one - hairy legs though!
    Cannondale Jekyll Lefty MTB - the muddy one which keeps tipping me into gorse bushes!
