[quote=Tail Hook Lengthener]I switched over to Thunder Butts on my NFE a couple of days ago, and used my free bottle of Slime sealant. So far it kind of sucks - lots of the normal small punctures in the casing that other sealants close immediately stayed open for more than a day with the Slime, and I had to keep pumping up the tires from literally atmospheric pressure. After two days, it’s finally holding air.
It’s been hard to get a true read on the tires, because the pressure has been so squirrely (and I keep over-inflating them on my way out the door, so that I don’t go totally flat on my way to work), but these tires do not feel noticeably heavier than the Horizons they are replacing, and despite the knobs, they actually seem to be as “fast”. So far though, my experience is limited to a handful of commutes. It’ll take a read ride to see if it makes a difference.[/quote]
Fuck this Slime bullshit. Not surprisingly, after a full week, it was still failing to hold a tire’s pressure for more than ~24 hours. After getting sick of coming back to my bike to find one or two flat tires, I pulled out the Slime, tossed it in the trash, and replaced it with Orange Seal. I’ll never stray again.
