I put this on my front replacing a high roller. I've noticed that I can corner this tire with more control than my high roller. Doesn't roll as long/fast as you would suspect, but the control and traction are much better in different types of conditions.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Says on the tire, "won't stay inflated without a tube or sealant". I don't use tubes so I need this sealant.
Easy to use. Nice to the environment. Seals punctures.

Get a valve remover and injector and you can add 1oz or 2oz throughout the season so you're always good to go.

I'll agree that sometimes the patch doesn't hold, and that is frustrating. Often there will be a wrinkle in the patch. But, 90% of the time though these patches have held and worked for me. I've had a couple of tubes that had a couple of these patches and they lasted a whole season. Small and easy to carry.

Doesn't quite fit in my seat bag for a local short single track. If I break it down then I can put it in my seat bag with a patch kit, but no tube. It's a nice upgrade from my last CO2 pump. Good concept though. I have the Innovations Secondwind Road Aluminum Mini CO2 Inflator that I've used for years and is great to have the option to inflate manually if needed. I wanted something smaller and easier to carry on a trail with no pack.

Zippered front pocket isn't huge, it can hold my phone which is about all I want to carry. The material of these shorts is awesome for warm weather riding. Super light and stretchy. I bought a 34 for biking but may buy a 36 for more casual wear. I could use these shorts for just about anything. The zippered back pocket is a plus. The two front pockets are OK but not deep by any means.
I don't use the drawstring on the size 34 they are a perfect fit.

Using this on a 2015 Santa Cruz Nomad. This works well for the most part, the design of the bike is the problem. Once I got the cage assembled the next problem was finding a decent size water bottle. Camelbak 21 oz podium barely fits, the lid rubs the shock just barely.. a 12oz may fit better. I don't usually get the water unless I'm turning around from an out and back ride or pulled off the trail for a breather. The 21oz takes some extra unf to get back in the cage.

I've been using Pedro's but thought I would try this for the spring. It does attract a lot of dust, so if it isn't packed or somewhat wet then I'd go with a dry lube.
Con - the nozzle allows too much to come out without even squeezing. I feel like it's a lot of lube lost because I try to get each pin with a small amount of lube.
