Eurotrash's Squirt Stopper is legit!

Post by spookyload on Sat Jan 26, 2013 5:36 am

Went for a spin today at Fantasy Island on the way home from work today. Picked up a few (like 10) goatheads in the first twenty minutes. When I stopped to get unlost, I was fairly close to the parking lot so I popped the goatheads out. They weeped goo for about two seconds and sealed right up each time. No noticable pressure loss. The stuff is legit. With stans it can take 10-15 seconds to seal up, and this was way faster. I did just install it in the tires yesterday so it was very fresh. If you don't have some in your tires...get with John and get it. You won't be disappointed. Side note, if you use Squirt Stopper or Squirt Juice as the real name, I get credit John.

It's "Open Source Sealant," or OSS. One of my best testers/developers is in Phoenix, and has been running it for almost a year. It's reportedly good for cactus, too.

Fantasy Island is a 16 mile trail network that gets about 300 riders a week. It is wickedly worn in so most cacti debris is gone. I will have to go elsewhere to field test it with cacti. I got unlucky yesterday because the wind had been blowing the day before and blew some goatheads over the trails. Usually isn't a problem.

Was swapping out the rest of my Stans for Johns stuff today. Took off a tire I installed in August and found this bad boy. About two inches across. Good thing I didn't take it out for a ride here with the cacti.

Stans does that in as little as 6 weeks... Mine does eventually, but the extra ammonia stretches the life out a lot further!
