    First Time Using A Stanís Dart Tire Plug...

    And it was amazingly flawless and easy. pulled it out, plugged it, pumped it. Heh.
    that was it. It didnít hurt that it was a perfectly round small puncture. But I am impressed.
    that is all.
    Just wanted to share a positive cycling experience.

    Not stans brand but I've used bacon strips a few times with good results. Recently it saved a brand new tire after taking a nail through the tread. Seems to be leaking air slowly but that could be side wall leakage as well. The previous tire had a plug for a solid year.

    None of these really work on sidewall holes, correct?
    No longer stuck.

    You should try a dynaplug. Co2 inflator is built into the plug tool. Jam the plug in, crack the co2 open, inflate the tire, remove. If you're quick about it, you can plug a hole and be back on your way in about 45 seconds.

    Overkill for most situations, but great if you're racing.

    Dynaplugs are annoyingly expensive... but itís a small us made company and they work great. They seem better in a handful of ways than most other setups. Iíve even had good success using them with road tubeless.

    Big fan of the Racer setup.... slowly adding one for each of my bikes. They have saved a handful of rides to the point that I have not used my spare tubes in years.

    That Dart system looks pretty interesting, however $20 for five refills vs $9 for twenty refills for standard plugs

    I used to plug car tires in like the 70"s this is not new its just a little different on a bike tire,

    if plugging a sidewall works good on ya but if it doesnt work it means you are outside of the product parameters

    I stabbed a Sahmurai Sword plug into a pinch flat sidewall on an Italian bike park day. Saved the day. Kept riding that thing until it was properly ready to retire.
