will tubeless goop freeze?
Can I leave my bike with tubeless setup in the back of my car over the winter?
I ride at least two three times a week year round and like to leave the kit in the car for easy access. Will the Stan's brand freeze in the tire? Do I have to go back to tubes until we get back to warmer days?
They say -28F
Stans MSDS sheet
Looking over the data sheet again....
I had to laugh at their address listed on the MSDS Sheet
202 Daniel Zenker Dr, Big Flats, New York 14814 USA
people do their own 'homebrew' sealants and one of the main ingredients is antifreeze (with liquid latex, glitter & water)
i imagine if you think freezing will be an issue, you could add a scoop of radiator fluid and put your mind at ease....or would that thin the stans out too much. hmmmmm....
haha, "Big Flats, NY" that is funny
Thanks for the link Scar. I had read on their website about special anti-freeze to go as low as -30, but thought is was some other bit of kit that you had to buy and add to the mix. Apparently, it is already in the mixture. I guess sometimes it pays to buy the name brand.
before i moved out this way, i commuted every day through downtown chicago, usually on my 29er, and always running stans. it did its job on plenty of -15deg. days.

Unlikely, but it can be turned into a solid...
the drugs made me realize it's not about the drugs
I've used this mixture, works well
