Hi All.

Just wondering what peoples experiences are with Stans sealing bigger holes, found it really good with thorns, but the other weekend had a rock nick my tyre in the tread area when I stopped it was like a excited sperm whale pumping white stuff out :) when most of the air had gone I had a look at where it was coming out and there was a hole of round 2 ish mm, so re inflated the tyre gave it a good shake to get the fluid in the right area and it would start to work and then stop, then it seemed as if it had stopped and as soon as you put any pressure from riding on it was straight back down, tried twice and then gave up and put a tube in it ( or was I doing something wrong )

Just wondering how big of a cut/hole any you have had work with Stans, there claim of a 1/4 of inch seems a bit of a long shot.
