I was in a shop the other day and I saw some foam for cars that is basically in a pressurised container and when you get a puncture you just fill the tyre with it and it allows you to drive home on the tyre.
I was wondering if there is anything similar for bicycles? I don't mind throwing the tube after using it, but I hate changing flats!
BTW I am not really interested in "slime" or any of its variants, I run too high a pressure for them.
Bicycle tires have such low air volume under high pressure, I doubt that any liquid sealant would work. There is a chance that some products could seal very small punctures, but anything more and all you'll have is a mess.
Hmm after a bit more research it seems that the car puncture repair stuff is only called "foam" it doesn't actually fill up the entire tyre, it just does what slime does. Oh well, here's back to relying on my armadillos again!
Yeah but I doubt it'd work for big punctures, and small punctures rarely, if ever, occur with my armadillo tyres. I was looking for something that would in an emergency just fill up the tyre with some expanding foam so you could ride home slowly.
I've successfully fixed flats with Pitstop, and failed to fix flats with Pitstop. Depends on the size of the puncture. I will say that at 20F, it sure is easier to use Pitstop than to take off your gloves and get frostbite.
