Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

Quick question for you tire folks using Ride-On sealant in your tubes...

I'm having a hard time nailing down the exact amount I need to put in the rear tubed tire - 130/80-18

I'm seeing 9 ounces, 11 ounces (9oz+25% for the tube), etc etc. Any thoughts?

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

I don't think you could go wrong with 11

Signatures? We don't need no stinking signatures!

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy



The Ride-On Dosage Calculator results are above.

Don't sweat the nano ounce thing, just try to get close. I'd recommend the "Severe Dosage" target.

Remember, Ride-On is a balancer as well, so you won't need rim weights.

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

I was thinking the bottles were 11 oz. I just put one bottle in each tire .

I read the first page that ride on is not a friend and your last page where I see lots of ride on bottles, so ride on is a friend?

The reference I went back and read was to Slime, the green stuff. Hate it. Maybe I missed a different post.

In general, the advice from Page One still applies to Slime or Ride-On - don't put it in your tubes and think it will be a panacea against flats.

Ride-On for me and most of my amigos is much better than Slime.

It still makes patching a tube with it a challenge though, but the risk is outweighed by the rewards.

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

I had a flat this past Saturday that would have been a nightmare with Slime. I picked up a nail in the rear knobby. It was a very short nail, just barely long enough to penetrate the carcass and puncture the tube. I felt it coming out of a corner and pulled over maybe a few hundred yards later. When I removed the tube it was no longer a donut. It had split along its length about half way around the circumference AND had completely come apart at one point. Had there been any Slime in my tube, this would have been a VERY messy operation. As it was, I had it fixed with a new tube in short order and was on my way. I've worked some flats that had Slime and it was a nightmare. If I had to pick between them, I'd go with Ride-On because I think it forms a rubberized coating that stays mostly in place whereas the Slime just stays as a liquid. I don't think it would have prevented my flat in this particular case, but the Ride-On would not have made the same mess as Slime.

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

Ride-On does not rubberize and it is not a liquid. It remains viscous at all times, that is how it acts as a continuous spin balancer. I use it more for that property than its tire sealant abilities. It will not seal anything other than the smallest prick punctures. So as Bob stated don't bank on it as a safeguard. Just a teeny level of protection for flats (if you're lucky). I have on more than one occasion removed a worn out tire and found a small residue of Ride-On between the tire and tube. So clearly I had a thorn or tack puncture that the Ride-On did seal.

Re: Mad Scientist Tire Academy

If the nail wasn't long enough to penetrate the cushioning layer of ride-on, then it might well have kept any air from escaping the tube. Thus keeping the tube from further unraveling under the stress of rolling on a flat tire. So much for theories... Glad you got it sorted without issue.

Interesting. The removed tire that I saw clearly had a coating that went all the way around the inside center few inches of the tire, but not up onto the sidewalls. "Rubberized" was the only way I could think of to describe it. From what I have seen, it is not anywhere near as messy as the Slime, which stays runny and wet. It also tends to gunk up valve cores in the stem.

I don't use either, but I know some folks swear by them.

[edit]

Here's a link to their FB page that shows what I am talking about. They say it forms a gel but stays liquid... Not sure how that works
