Speaking of flats, the puncture on the front wheel of my PFN10 is the proverbial bad penny that won't go away. Stan's Tire Seal fixed it when it happened but if I pumped it up too much it would blow again. Last night I tried again, let Stan seal it then pump it. As I held it in my hand it blew out again. A small bump had actually appear at the puncture site. I'm guessing the seal was just unable to hold up with insufficient tire providing the backing. Well, it will hold maybe 100psi, maybe less, would be a good spare to carry in a pinch but not a primary road tire. So I glued up and mounted another tire.
