Okay, so I'm confused. If Ride-On is all that it's cracked up to be, balances your tires and fixes flats, even some punctures in tubes, without all the greasy kid stuff, why would you use Dyna-Beads in the front tire and Ride-On in back instead of Ride-On in both?
My reason is the Ride-On is pretty expensive.
Yes,2x cost of dyna beads but all it takes is 1x for the ride-on to save you from a flat in the middle of nowhere or worse yet from having a rrear tire go down when crusing 75mph on the interstate with the wife/girlefriend on the back & loosing control going down to be worth the $20 additional cost for the ride-on,my wifes & my life is worth more then that additional $20 to me.
I saw 2x over the past yr here in RSC where people posted new repots of a rear tire going down at highway speed on bikes that killed people,1x was a husband & wife that were both killed and other was a guy that was killed riding alone.
Concesus was in both cases post accident that rear tires had lost air possibly due to puncture (nail/screw etc) or that people had not checked tire pressure recently and it was low that a product like ride-onoe had the potential to stop from happening in both cases ,ride-on could have potentially saved someones life or lives in those 2 cases.
So on top of that it was also well worth the additonal $20 i paid for the ride-on over dyna beads to have it stop the loud anoying front tire moan/howel so i could ride for last 10k miles of the s life in peace with no more moaing/howling as well as it keeping the tires ballanced well too.
Thats why i will always use & rec ride-on over dyna beads any day of the wk because i already know 1st hand it ballances tires well and also quiets noisey moaing howeling tires not to mnetion the most important aspect possibly saving my wifes & my life someday keeping a tire from going down .
As for its ability to seal up to it's advertised 1/4" punctures in the tubeless tires my bike has i have thankfully not had a chance to see how it performs there . But from the videos & pic's i have seen/rvu'd it sure made it look as though the ride-on could really seal up to 1/4" punctures in tubelss apps,it also had good user feedback too.
We are talking a small $20 dif in cost here for a superior product that does more then the Dyna beads can that also has the potential to save a life due to it's sealing ability,thats a no brainer for me/LOL!!!!,from now on it will always be ride-on in my bikes tires!
Just my $.02 on that one.
