Gas tyre refill with slime?

    Hello all,

    My mate at work races regularly in a variety of events and saw a guy repair a punctured tyre with what looked like one of those gas canister tyre refill things.

    Anyone have any idea if these things exist, or was he drunk on Endorphins?

    Cheers,
    AM.

    They're about £8 in Halfords. Or half the price in Decathlon.
     
  3. There is and your LBS should have them they are around £7 ish. They work well if you need to keep down weight on a ride? you can get 1 fill in a mtb or 2 fills in a road.

    Thanks, both of you.

    Like a moron, I forgot to say that these things actually repair the puncture - they've got some kind of slime mixture in them - well, that what my mate here says....
