I want to avoid flats and I am going to put them on the mbike I'm going to make (as soon as the kit arrives). Any thoughts?
Walmart: (who I hate)I have a NoMorFlats on the back of my bike. Clotho's Bike
It rides a bit mushy but it doesn't go flat anymore. I found after awhile that I grew used to it. I still check the spokes for tightness and the rim for straight, from time to time. So far so good.
My front tire was never a problem so I left the tube in it. I just put the NoMorFLats on the back. I think that the handling is a bit better with the tube in the front than it would be with a NoMorFlats up front.
Where did you find your NoMorFlats?
Its heavy duty tube with sealer in it. The box measures 4" x 4 1/2" x 10"! I got it at the dreaded WAL-MART. If its not stocked on the shelf they maybe online at WAL-MART.com.What is Flatblocker Max? Is it stuff you put *in* the tire (tube)? Where do you get it? Will it work with Presta valves?
Thanks for the tip, I've never adjusted them. Would really know what too tight would be.Its only 10 psi between both tires. I know I've punctured them 3X. I have some Slime. I may slime'em too if I have too mess with the valve stem anyway.If you are losing 10 psi per week, you might try to check the valve stem to make sure the core is tight. Might be leaking a little air past the core.
I'm running slime tubes in mine. Thought about some no mor flats, but so far the slime tubes have been fine. I do 95% on road riding and the roads are pretty clean here, so haven't had any problems yet.
