    the Dynaplug looks to be wider so you are not working with the thin strip of bacon* doubling over itself and slipping out of the needle when you pull it out, therefore I can see the advantage - but the price

    *I am looking to source these from Canada to solve this issue

    Were you guys using sealant on your Reno/Mendocino ride? (I have no experience...do people not use sealant when it comes to road tubeless?)

    Also, with the 'Racer' version there is no tiny knife for trimming the plug. Did you guys skip that step w/o issue?

    Thanks, this is an interesting little product.

    Yes, we all had sealant and these plugs require sealant to work; They provide extra "stuff" for the sealant to attach to to seal the puncture.

    You're correct, the racer doesn't have the blade. It might be nice to have (or just carry a pocket knife, etc.). the only real issue with not trimming the plugs was that the plug can hit the chain or seat stays where clearance is tight. It didn't cause any problems with the plug, but the noise could drive you crazy (and it might rub the paint). One guy rode almost the whole trip with one in his rear wheel and ~75% with a 3-plug fixed hole in his front.

    The Dynaplug was the MVP for the trip.

    Very cool, thanks. Cannot argue with that performance.

    Possibly a dumb question but I'll ask anyway: any chance this would work on a tubular tire?

    a tubeless tubular tire? same chance as a tubeless clincher. tubed tubular tire? same chance as a tubed clincher. zero.

    So the pointy bit stays in the tire? And no one had it poke a hole in their tape? Anyone inspected their rim tape since the trip yet?

    No yet for both questions. I'll open the tire up today and take a look.

    It is a caution but the risk/reward is pretty well in favor of fixing it fast and well. I'm going to guess that if you re-flat after using dynaplug and your run the tire FLAT and you ride it than yeah that brass tack is going to do something bad.

    I might just order the small version and use it for a self defense weapon...the squirrels have been plentiful the year.

    There's been a similar system kickstarted out there, called the Patch n Ride. But that was going on three years ago now and they still haven't pushed a product into the wild. No metal plug left in the tube if memory serves, but the Dynaplug is actually, yanno, available in the real world today.

    Pardon the OT question.. But how'd you end up liking the Overrides? My rear MSO has a tread defect and I'm up for trying something new.

    So here is the interior of a Compass Switchbak Hill EL (650X48) that got a big gash in it on Day 1 of our 5 day Reno2Cino trip. Took 1 large and 2 small Dynaplugs to seal the hole, but it stayed put for the rest of the trip over very rough roads. I would have left it on, but switching back to 42 mm tire on this wheel:

    On the rear I had a single hole sealed with 1 small Dynaplug. It also held up for 4 more days of gravel, but the tip fell off inside and was rattling around inside the tire. It didn't seem to be doing any harm, but I took the tire off to get it out once the trip was over anyway. Tire is back on now.
