Not all on one trip of course, but I have over a thousand miles on my tube tires. I have had one flat, before adding Slime, but I fixed that easily on the trail, albeit only a couple of miles from any kind of support. Took maybe 20 minutes.I wouldn’t venture out on longish trips away from support without tubeless tires.
Impressive. The nail appears to have gone through the tire at an angle... did it penetrate the inner tube?This a good enough reason?, Tyre didn't go flat while the nail was in and after I removed it, and used it for another 18 months after, fitted a new tyre and tube and more slime.
Yep, in two places, how it happens is apparently the fencing nail with a flat head is lying on the road, as the front tyre passes over it the nail is tipped up and the rear tyre catches it, I was doing about 35kph, and suddenly noticed a thumping noise from the rear tyre, pulled up at the post office a half a kick later and had a look and saw this nail sticking out of the tyre, didn't try to remove as the tyre still had pressure, just as well I have disc brakes as the nail would have snagged on the calipers of rim brakes.Impressive.

Many of the sealants are thicker than water and once you've put some in the tire and spun the tire, most of it should be coating the inside of the tire. It's not like it would pool at the bottom. But other sealants could be more liquid (like the Finish Line that I'm currently using) but pooling at the bottom doesn't seem to be an issue. Maybe it does if the bike is just sitting there, but the moment you start riding it distributes itself around the tire. Really not an issue.How does the liquid not pool in the tire causing an imbalance?
