GIVEAWAY: Want To Never be Stopped by a Flat Bike Tire Again?

>> Saturday, March 01, 2014

How would you like to NEVER have to deal with a flat tire on a ride ever again? Well, all you have to do is comment on this post to be entered to win some stuff from Joe's No-Flats. Here's a little back-story from when we talked with 2 guys from Joe's No-Flats when I was in Israel:

We headed to Eilat from Tel Aviv for the Israman Triathlon:

Greeted by a big sign at the Eilat airport the day before the race.

The Red Sea the day before the race. (Those hills to the left are in Jordan - I mentioned
watching the sun come up over them while swimming in my Israman Race Report.)

The morning after the race, we were treated to a GREAT breakfast along a lagoon / bay of the Red Sea. It was a an outdoor buffet that was 200 feet long! Over breakfast, we talked with some guys from Joe's No-Flats. (All of the photos coming next except for the close up of me are from Noa who was the great photographer traveling with us.)

These are ALL fruit cups.

People sitting at the edge of the lagoon.

Looking down the outdoor buffet. It stretches way farther than you can see here.

Grilled veggies.

I started my meal rather healthily (for me): assorted cheeses to the left,
and a few kinds of freshly squeezed juice and fresh fruit.

Chatting with the 2 guys from Joe's No-Flats over breakfast.

Joe's No-Flats (as a company) had a great story: it was started by 2 scientists (not cyclists) who had a cycling buddy named Joe. Joe needed a way to keep from flatting on his rides, so he asked his scientist buddies. The rest, as they say, is history.

They talked about their "big" item: their tube sealant. The coolest part of the morning is when they (and then many of us) repeatedly stabbed a nail into a fully-inflated road bike tire and then pulled it out so we could see just how quickly (and strongly) it sealed the tire. It was amazing. Here's our group with Ben ready to cram the nail back into the tire for about the 4th time that morning:

They bragged about their sealant being better than others for 2 main reasons: first, it seals FASTER than others so on a road bike you won't notice any real loss of pressure; and second, it holds it seal better in wet conditions - something that other sealants have trouble with.

Toasting with some strong Israeli booze post-meal.

They brought some goodies for us, and now I'm giving some of them to you!

Here's a bit about their sealant from their website:

The best sealant in the market! Specifically developed for light TLR/ TNT tubeless tires with thin side walls. Suitable for sensitive rims and tires. Suitable for people with allergy and sensitivity to latex. For use in tubeless tires and inner-tubes. Instantly seals punctures in the tread up to 6 mm more permanently than any other sealant on the market. Does not build a sticky substance in the tire. Easy to use spout- fits into all valves. Contains micro-sealing particles.

And here's some about their pre-filled tubes from their website:

Very high quality lightweight butyl inner-tubes, prefilled with 50 grams of Joe's Road Racing Sealant - the world's most effective anti-puncture sealant for road bikes! Specially engineered to seal punctures at the high air pressures of road racing wheels. Instantly seals punctures in the tread up to 3mm. 120 grams total weight for the Superlight Self Sealing tubes.

Here's what I want to give away:

2 sets of "no flats" tubes, some rim tape (if you decide to try tubeless), and some No Flat sealant.

QUICK SIDE NOTE: these "science-minded" people at Joe's No-Flats also have some AMAZING bike lube. I'm not giving any of my lube away because I'm too excited to try it! (Not that I'm not excited about their sealant.) Their lubes have nanotechnology (a major buzzword for the last few years) that basically puts 20,000 tiny tiny tiny ball bearings into each drop of lube. It's made to be put on and completely wiped off: it will fill any gaps or micro cracks to do it's job - anything on the surface is just extra. Here's what I was sent home with:

These are mine! You're not getting these... at least not right now.

(I say "at least not right now" because the guys at Joe's No-Flats might be sending me a lot more stuff to giveaway! Look for more in the coming months! It's seems to be great stuff that I think you guys would like.)


Yeah, that's it. Comment below. You do NOT need to be a blogger, but make sure to leave some specific info so you’ll know if you won. (So you could say something like this: “Hey Steve, this John Smith from Topeka. I want some of Joe's stuff! Thanks!”)

Yes, yes please! Having no flats would make for infinitely better riding - especially here where getting a flat means getting cold in the rain while you repair it.

Weston Smith 10:23 PM, March 01, 2014  

Sweet! What a game changing product. Would love to give it a try.

Sarah Kopf 10:23 PM, March 01, 2014

No flats . . . impossible until I see it.

Joe 5:29 AM, March 02, 2014  

Yes, please, thank you.

Seth,  7:03 AM, March 02, 2014  

Very cool product. I don't think I'd stab my tires with a nail to test it, but, given the frequency of flats on my training rides, I'd be very keen to try it!

Lisa Isenberger 7:12 AM, March 02, 2014  

I would love to win and see if this actually works against the nasty goat head thorns we have in central new mexico.

Robert Lejeune 7:14 AM, March 02, 2014  

Seems like an amazing product, please put my name in :)

Life After Swimming 10:03 AM, March 02, 2014

Cort the Sport 5:04 PM, March 02, 2014  

OMG! Yes, please!! That sounds amazing and I will be asking our bike shop to stock it. So you have to use their tubes with the sealant? Sure seems like the sealant could have some wider (beyond cycling) applications too.

Christopher 6:30 PM, March 02, 2014  

I hate flats and I love technology. Sealants FTW!

Heather 7:20 PM, March 02, 2014  

oh, me please. I am doing IM Cd'A and I hear flats are common on that course!

Justin S 8:10 PM, March 02, 2014  

After a flat in a half iron last summer and another in a duathlon, it'd be great to not have to worry about this. Especially in races! I'll gladly take them off your hands.

Katie 11:02 PM, March 02, 2014  

I'd love to bike to work but am terrified of getting a flat, so if you pick me, you'll be saving the environment. Thanks :-)

Cool stuff.

Jody,  12:14 PM, March 04, 2014  

I tend to spend the bike portion of tris freaking out that I have a flat and haven't realized it yet. This could be a game changer!

Lynne 2:59 PM, March 04, 2014  

Nanotechnology for lube? I'd keep that too. I would love to not get a flat again.

TerryR 7:15 PM, March 04, 2014  

I flatted twice last weekend...grrrrrrr!

Lance Elliott 10:44 AM, March 05, 2014  

Not quite a new bike, but may be a nice little boost for beloved magenta and yellow ride.

Jeremy Reichenberger 9:47 AM, March 06, 2014

Greg P,  8:54 AM, March 07, 2014  

Yay for no more flats!

Melissa @ Faster In Water 1:28 PM, March 07, 2014  

That is amazing! I would love that.

MeghanPags,  3:16 PM, March 09, 2014  

'Cause bending over to change a flat while wearing spandex is just embarrassing.

Matthew Cook 7:46 PM, March 09, 2014  

My wife would rather quit a race than change a flat. Let me win this for her!
