I just took delivery of three 8 oz bottles. I plan to try it in my front wheel for it's dynamic balancing properties. I have dyna beads (actually, counteract, but same principle), and I really don't care for them. I think they get hung up on the inside of the tire and don't always place themselves accurately.. then, when you get up to hwy speed, they stay where they were due to the centrifugal force. I'm betting the gelatinous nature of the ride-on will allow it to remain better balanced.
Does anyone use Ride-On, or any similar gel-like tire sealants? It sounds good in theory, but I'd love to hear feedback from anyone who deals more with wheels and safety at a professional level. Can any shop guys comment on having to work on wheels with Ride-On and if it's a problem or not?
My thought is that messing with the wheels is a big deal, and you'd probably be better off using a plug in most cases. On the other hand, nothing is worse than a blow-out on the road. That could crash the bike. Anything that helps prevent a blowout is a worthwhile safety feature and would be better than having to deal with a fast flat at high speed.
