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?
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?
What is Flatblocker Max? Is it stuff you put *in* the tire (tube)? Where do you get it? Will it work with Presta valves?
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.
