    Wow, that's the exact opposite of my experience. I've tried Slime twice, once came from the factory with Slime, another I tried adding it. I have never seen it actually seal even the tiniest hole. ...

    I rode with schrader valves for quite a while, even drilling out the rim. I argued that the schrader was just fine, and for the most part it is.

    Right now both of my bikes have presta valves. ...

    Meh, I did drive in after calling for a bail-out with my wrecked bike (and after cleaning and dressing the wounds) but that's just because I was already 2 hours late. The next day I rode my back-up...

    I can't think of an answer that isn't smart-assy. I increase distance by riding farther. If you ride 20 miles every day and are used to it, 30 miles isn't going to affect you at all. I ride about...

    How the HECK did that happen? All I ever do is look at the top page of a forum. Maybe I clicked something unintended and brought zombies up from the past.

    If you want accuracy, get a digital gauge. Analog gauges are often right, but digital ones seem to ALWAYS be EXACTLY right. Even the cheap ones.
