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.)
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.
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.
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:
Toasting with some strong Israeli booze post-meal.
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.
These are mine! You're not getting these... at least not right now.
