I tried it once, it didn't work if I remember rightly they reacted together and Stans just turned into lumps ohmy.gif

Fair enough, thanks Mick agree.gif

I might jut use the Stans then, it's pretty cheap for a large bottle (in the big scheme of things anyway) so I might just keep toppng up with that.

I doubt it. The Bontrager, Specialized and Slime products are all based on a Glycol solution. It doesn't dry out so will not seal a hole permanently like Latex does. Pity as the Specialized product is 4 quid a bottle at the LBS to do two wheels.

I'll be looking to do Stans or a close copy shortly onto my Trek.

Thanks Nick, I'm going to go with the Stan's.

I was dissapointed that the Bontrager stuff wouldn't seal a very small hole in the sidewall, maybe it was just in an akward place.

If I layed the tyre onto it's side, the hole would seal instantly, but after a day standing in the shed, it would start leaking again.

Cheers,

None of the sealants are good for fast leaking sidewall holes.

Stan's will seal thorn punctures in a sidewall so long as the solution gets to the hole and the sidewall is not as thin as paper.

This was a pretty small hole. At 60 psi, held under water, the bubbles were coming out seperately (if that makes sense) it wasn't a fast leak but the sidewalls are thin.
