New snack. I don’t recommend

Post by jbuchan »



Was introducing the balancing beads into the front tire today and they got stuck in the valve stem, poured a little to fast. So I had a bright idea, I will just blow the stuck beads through. Yes my first thought should have been the air hose, I know. But no down came me lips on that little hose and “backfire”. After several minutes of spitting the beads out I can clearly not recommend the taste or texture. :lol: We all need to laugh at ourselves every so often.


Never a bad day on two wheels :lol:

Use the applicator bottle with a short piece of hose on it and gentle puff a little in at a time. Word of caution: when adjusting air pressure keep the stem at the 6 o'clock position and tap repeatedly to knock any beads into the tire. If you get a bead into the air valve you will certainly have to remove it to free it up. I know this from experience, but it won't happen again. Sucks when your at a gas station check pressure just to have it jam up and flatten the tire.

I have always been curious about trying out Ride On. Past experiences getting things puncturing my tires I have never had anything in the crown, always close to the edges.
