Ride On in all 3 of my bikes. Either haven't had a puncture or it works REALLY well at sealing. Balance is great! If it's really cold there can be a little "vibration" until it spreads, then the ride is very smooth. Warmer temps it's great from the get go.

I've always just done the traditional weights on everything,but I think I'll try the "Ride On" from now on,especially since I have a slow leak in one of my car tires
