    Can you put Stan's in normal tubes? Gracias.

    Was it a FS stroller with small wheels, or a rigid stroller with big wheels?

    Do you sell Stan's and the applicator?

    Pabs, what's the appeal in running a Stans filled tube over a ghetto tubeless with Stans and non-UST tire?
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    That's what I used to use for cross till I went with tubular's. Still in my pit wheels. Have official "Slime" tubes on my commuter.

    For DIY, just have to buy conti or QBP (probably others) tubes with the removable valve cores.

    Pabs - I've run Stan's in tubes before - remove the core and BAM, hit it with the spice weasel - I mean insert Stan's and replace core. Good to go! I've converted all my wheels except the cyclocross bike to tubeless with Stan's since. I run the cyclocross bike with Stan's in the tubes, still, and it works well enough.

    Stan's in tubes works fine, until you hit something really big.

    And you don't necessarily need to use a tube with a removeable core. Back in the day, to get Slime into my cheapo tubes, I would just poke a small hole in the tube, squeeze in the juice, and then patch it with an old-school rubber cement-style patch. Worked fine.

    Don't poke holes or use a removeable core. Use any presta tube. I do it to my road bike tubes or when i have a flat and i'm out of tubes.

    The procedure:

    1. Unscrew the nut offf the pin.
    2. Hold the backside of the stem through the tube to prevent the pin from falling in.
    3. Use a small diameter hose (ex. fish tank hose) attach to stans bottle and core.
    4. Squeeze a decent amount in.
    5. Replace nut on pin.
    6. Pump it up.


    This trick also works to fix flat tires without having to remove the wheel.
