Strengths:    Less expensive than a tubeless setup with Stan's

Weaknesses:    Doesn't actually work very well, i.e. it does not stop flats

Bottom Line:   
I ride where goathead thorns are a big problem. For years I used Slime tire liners with reasonable success. They prevented the goatheads from penetrating in most cases, but the liners move around in the tires, so every once in a while I'd get a puncture in a spot where the liner was off-center. Then I switched to tubeless with Stan's, which for me has a 100% success rate so far. I've pulled at least 20 goatheads and other sharp pointy objects out of my tires this summer and not once had a tire deflate on me. They piss out a little Stan's and they re-seal.

But Stan's is expensive, messy, and requires attention to maintain, so I thought I'd try another approach - tubes with Flat Attack. I put that setup on another bike and so far it has a 100% failure rate. Every goathead I've pulled out has led to a flat tire. The only good thing I can say about it is that it seems to at least slow the release of air through the holes - I've been able to get home without changing the tube on the trail. But the seal is not permanent like Stan's seems to be. An hour or so later, the tire is flat.

I'm not sure what Flat Attack would seal if it can't seal the tiny holes that the goatheads make, so I'll chalk it up to experience and I'll be sticking with Stan's and tubeless.

Strengths:    Works well for years. Easy to work with and cleans up easily. The "greenest" sealant on the market. Best sealant period.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Flat attack works great for years. No other sealant can match flat attack. Doesn't dry out or ball up. Recommend flat attack to anyone wanting a quality product. You definitely get your moneys worth with Flat attack.

On a ride yesterday all of the stans blew out from so many holes and there wasn't enough left to seal them all. once I got back home I put some more in an ... Read More »

How much drag/friction does tire sealant add?

After adding some Stans and listening to it slosh around as the wheel spun, I got to wondering how much extra friction this is causing. Like a mini paddle wheel, the tire "lifts" a bit of liquid with each revolution. Seems like it would have a substantial impact. (If you dip a spinning slick into ... Read More »

Sealant bleeding out of tire on first ride

Hi friends. I did a Stans tubeless conversion on my 26" wheels last night. It went well even though my front tire had a lot of tiny leaks in the sidewalls. I think I got them all. This morning I went on a quick ride on my local singletracks. After about 10 minutes of riding I stop and look at my ... Read More »

Tear in my first tubeless tire - do I need to patch or will sealant help? (pics)

So I have been making some upgrades to my mountain bike in preparation for spring riding once the weather turns nice. I have never used tubeless before but I have some brand new tubeless wheels+tires and was very excited to get out on the trails. I've taken the bike around the blocks a few times t ... Read More »
