Occasionally, a new product comes along that is such a no brainer that it should be an overnight success. I believe Ride-On Tire Sealant & Balancer is such a product. Ride-On is a pudding like product that is pumped into your tire and it settles in the tread area of the tire or tube. If there is a puncture, it moves into the hole and sealing it and preventing a breakdown.
Imagine you are on vacation with your riding friends and you get a flat tire. You call AAA or the closest dealer and wait. Maybe it’s hot, maybe it’s raining, maybe you are tired and hungry. The point is you’re waiting, and the ride is on hold and it could be a couple of hours or the next day. What will the wait cost you? What would it be worth to insure against it happening in the first place?

That means no more unsightly weights stuck to the rim or on the spokes that could fly off leaving a balance problem. Take the time to check out the video at the Ride-On website. Come in and ask us about Ride-On if you still have questions. Each tire size requires a specific amount in ounces to protect against air loss and for balancing the amount is increased by 25%.

If a nail, screw, or other debris is found it should be removed and the tire or tube should be replaced at the earliest convenience. As you will see in the video mentioned above it is possible to ride with many punctures as long as they are in the footprint area of
