Will Slime damage a tire gauge?
My wife's new bike (Giant Suede DX-W) came with Slime already added to the tires from the factory as a 'feature'. Says so on the tires, and the caps are green. Imagine my surprise when the green stuff blew out all over the place the first time I went to adjust air pressure!
I use a high quality Accutire electronic gauge. I partially disassembled it to see what happened, and sure enough the inlet tube is now all wet-green, all the way to the pressure transducer. There is no way to break it down further for cleaning. Anyone have experience with this? Does this stuff gum up with time?Is my trusty gauge toast?
