Yup. Just did it this week. There's a thread in here with pictures on how to do it. I had a slow leak that was driving me crazy and it fixed it just fine! I'm thinking of putting some in my front tire now and in my road bike too!

Good luck.

yes, i do this all the time. in both my road bike and mtn bike. i raced six races in cactus country with no flats. could be luck... i did see where needles went through and was sealed.

no need to inject. i do about 3-4 oz in mtn tubes and 2-3 oz in road tubes...roughly.

for schrader, simple. take out valve core and use a small stans squeeze bottle as both a measuring device and to squeeze in. refill with the pint size bottle or whatever. follow directions regarding shaking and pouring before settling occurs.

presta, simple too. clip the very very tip of thread off with cutters. take off "nut". carefully let the core fall into tube while "catching and pinching" it in tube with fingers so it does not fall way down into tube. use the same squeeze bottle. manipulate valve back up. put little nut back on. done.

the stans bottle says it is made for tubes right on the front. :thumbsup:

i run low pressures.

Or some presta tubes (Continental for one) have removable valves, I've put Stan's in those before.
