recently had a slow puncture which was happily sorted with tyre weld, after about 300k's I noticed more vibration around 130, could this be the tyreweld that causes it.

what are the pro's and con's of this stuff, also who has used fugit?

you're lucky with the tyre weld, I've never seen it work, yet. Not to say it won't but if that's all anyone carries, then they're taking a big chance.

I use thick tubes with fugit. Haven't had a puncture yet. Maybe I'm lucky, maybe the fugit has worked?

I also carry spare tubes, etc, but no tyre weld.

Don't get vibrations at any speed on gravel or tar.

Is it possible the fugit balances your wheel like dyna beads?

Ek weet nie of hierdie onderwerp al bespreek is nie, maar ek het vir my nuwe bande laat opsit en sommer ook `n heavy duty tube laat insit. Ek het in my vorige tube gel laat sit, maar dit het nie eintlik gehelp nie, want ek het nog steeds punctures gekry. :angry: Help gel in tubes of is dit net geldmors. Watter soort is dan ook die beste.

HD tubes... imho is Gel en daai goed net van toepassing as jy off road race. Op spoed kan hulle balans probleme gee.

Stem saam met Sus Benade. Offroad only aangesien jy nooit of selde vinniger ry as 110 km/h nie. Weet nie van een ou wat al ooit n offroad bike se tyres gebalanseer het nie.

Dit maak nie saak offroad nie, die klipppe/graspolle/miershope ens. is in elk geval besig om die wiele rond te skommel so 'n ongebalanseerde wiel word nie eers gevoel nie! ;)

Ek't eers sludge in altwee wiele gehad en het nooit wiel balans probleme gehad nie, maar toe ek 'n ruk terug 'n puncture (spyker size, in die loopvlak) kry het die wiel nog steeds afgeblaas. 'n Insleep later het dit letterlik langer gevat om die gemors wat toe uit die tube uit loop skoon te maak, as om die wiel uit te haal en te patch.

Ek ry nou maar'n pomp, patch kit, tyre levers, en spare tubes saam. Dit raak eensaam as mens so vir die tow truck moet wag :laugh:
