So I have been commuting on singles for a bit now and got my first flat on Friday night after a few sherbets at the Mountain goat. No pit stop in my bag so I road from Carlton gardens back to Flemington and a dead flat tyre. I thought to myself that I will give the Geax TNT pit-stop stuff a go and didn’t really care too much for the tyres condition when I gat there.
I pulled the huge chunk of glass out and put 30ml of MTB solution in through the valve core. Then hit it with the compressor.
Solution squirted across the workshop and bubbled all the way around the side walls where I had pretty well stuffed the inner of the tyres.
There was also 2 other pretty big holes that pissed out shit every where.
Then much to my surprise the fucker sealed up.
The big hole was 8mm long on the surface and it still sealed.
From now on every tyre I have get this stuff before I ride on it.
The Vittoria pitstop in a can has a latex like product that vulcanizes in contact with the air.
The Geax MTB pit stop solution has little particles that hep seal bigger holes.
The Vittoia is for carrying in case of a flat.
The geax is put in prior and designed for MTB tubeless tyres.
I was only using $40 Strada’s so not really expected to offer much protection
The tubs are a little different to the clinchers but still have good protection. The rolling resistance is slightly more than say a GP400 tub but with the pressures you can ran it doesn’t make too much difference.
