Racing Ralph TL tyres, what sealant to use

Postby BigStu2 » Thu Mar 13, 2014 21:40 pm

I've got a pair a Racing ralph TL ready tyres and a bottle of Fenwicks airtight sealant but after a quick read it seems that Fenwicks arn't compatible with TL tyres but I'm not sure what the sealant will and wont do to these tyres, should I just get hold of some stans instead.
Thanks

I like Stan's the best. Not tried Fenwicks. Not a fan of the more gloopy ones like Specialized/RRP/Bontrager. IMO the latex ones like Stan's/Joe's/Caffe Latex are best.

Thats what I thought,just browsed my lbs on line and their out so picked up some Schwalbe doc blue also manufactured by Stans so will give that a go. The Fenwicks I have here will now go in the rear of my Kona Unit as it uses standard tyres and Fenwicks apparently works a treat on them... Hopefully!!
