i use the stans and i like it a lot. the only thing that hurts it is 1/4" gashes in the sidewall...but nothing can protect your tire from that.

I was partial to baseball card in the spokes. Makes a cool sound when you go fast.

You got it George, and it scares mountain lions away too!

Nah,
That's what my various mojos are for. That and random stickers are "the" choice upgrades

BTW, if your goal is to lower your pressure and dent your rims, you can do it with tubes too...

Mucho Gusto Stans.
1 year strong, i've had to patch one tire. Running it on both bikes and I ride some really rocky trials.

Got a small hole a month ago. To finish the ride (because I was to lazy to put a tube in) I had the pump up the tire 3 times. Did a ride the following week and the Stans sealed the tire for the whole ride, at the end, while the bike was in the truck, it started leaking and went flat in minutes. Raced the following week, again too lazy to fix it, pre ride the tire was leaking badly but didn't have time to put in a tube. Filled the tire at the start line and the tire held for the whole race. Patched the tire the next week. Still holds air well, 3 weeks later.

I love stans

I have cross max xl wheels whith specialized roll x pro tires and a scoope of stans in each tire. No problems hear I run them at about 30-35 psi and have pulled a couple of nails out of my tire and they sealed instantly. make sure too use a tire that is recomended on their web site.

I put Stan's up to the test in rocky, rooty West Virginia. Rode Continenal Escape supersonics (the light version) with two scoops of stans in each rim on Crossmax SL wheelset and not one problem. Help up nice at 33psi, no rips, burps, leaks on the trail. People running tubes had 9 flats I think the count was over 5 days. I'm impressed.

Yup, over a year now for me and no problems at all. Only 1 flat from a 1/2" cut from broken glass that would have sliced a tube as well. The same riding areas used to flat my tubes about once a week. I'm 185 lbs and no dented rims, running pressures as low as 30 psi. Maybe it hasn't worked well for everyone, but I'm sold on it and I'll never go back to tubes. They are too much work.

:) Been Using it for almost 2 years now. :)
Real Happy.Great for XC riding and S/S.
If you do allot of jumping you need to keep your preasures up at the same levels you would run your tubes at.
The first couple of set ups were pretty messy, but you get better at it. Make sure you use compressed air.It's just easier that way
