    Nice. I went to running nitrogen in my tires as I have it at the shop. After 6 months a Stans ball in the front tire. Was 1/4 the size it normally is, and did not even have one in the rear tire.
    Currently at Mayo Clinic being tested for a kidney transplant. Donors welcome.

    I don't even know what that is, or what to say. Have you seen a doctor?

    Just plain ol' Stans in a Panaracer Rampage for almost a year... Lesson learned: don't just replenish the Stans, but check for boogers too...

    As a newbie to all that is Stans and tubeless, this is good to know! Your specimen reminds me of a Stimpy's collection of nose goblins...

    Ray you gotta stop bitting your nails man.

    Oddly while Stan's creates those neat crystalline boogers. the Caffelatex that I use dries with a thin coat on the tire (and rim) surface - no boogers.

    On a related note, Ray advised me of plugging a hole in my tire with a piece of cotton so I found an old t-shirt and cut a little strip out, shoved it through the whole with a small allen wrench - and hey it held during the Whiskey 25 just fine! In fact, I would have flatted on the Whiskey, but the Caffelatex sealed up a pretty big whole I incurred on the rear tire. Gotta love sealants.

    i found a really good one after my first flat with stans, about six months and two or three refills deep. i wanna grow em big! i like getting people to guess what they are, everyone thinks its some mineral or coral, then they feel its rubbery jiggle and get grossed out. good fun
