Default Ride-on Tire balancer-seal

Bought some.

Those using it, and FOR THOSE WHO DON'T ride constantly, how long does the bike have to sit for the solution to "pool" at bottom, and how bad and long is the ride until it re-distributes itself?


Thanks.

If you go to there web site you will see that as you ride the ride-on will stick the tire.
My bike sat all last week and I road on Sunday with no issues what so ever. Even had it up to a hundred at one point and as smooth as could be.

I just put Ride-on in my tires a week ago and what a difference. The ride feels much more smoother. I honestly did not get the feeling that the wheel was out of balance while the stuff spread out within the tire as I expected. My bike doesn't sit more than a couple of days before I am riding again so I wondered about pooling as well.

Like anything, it will change consistency when cold or hot, so while it is super slow to pool, even in hot weather, it will do so quicker in the Summer. A few miles on the surface streets and it's right back to where it should be. Probably not even that long. I doubt you would ever notice it Mike.

Now that it's in there; fuggetaboutit.

Thanks.
I had it in my other bike and once its in and you've riden a bit you don' t notice it unbalance. If you pay close attention you might notice it for a mile or 2. Even after sitting all winter I didn't really notice anything on the first ride of the season.

I just bought some today to put in the new tire I need to put on soon.
