 Hope it's better then the Sealant. I had it in stock for a while, it gave nothing as problems. When trying to get info from them we were said that they had a bad badge of sealant. Problems kept going, threw them all in the dumpster and we're using Orange Seal only now...

 We only stock Orange Seal too. Amazing stuff!

 Got to agree with this. We bought up big and it ended up in the bin. Sorry guys, it just didn't work.

 I ran it for a short while, was pretty bad. It turned into a large block in my front wheel. Stans No Tubes from here on out!

 I understand the need for an income, but I wish he would put his name/brand on a product that is actually good.

 Same here, sealant was so thick that it wouldn't coat the tire properly and kept leaking, only way I could get it to work was to mix it with some stans.
  • + 0
 Not sure why people have had issues with the sealant, not had any issues other than getting a bit glittery when using it.
  • + 0
 @thomasmb I’d have had it if you were just throwing it out.
  • + 8
 Had the old batch - know what you all mean. Got a replacement about 8 months ago direct, no issues since!
  • + 2
 i think i’m one of the only people that’s had good luck with the sealant? been a year and i’ve only added about 50 ml a tire, no problems. slashed my aggressor DD a few times and it patched it like a charm. dunno what all the fuss is about
  • + 6
 YES!!! i had the EXACT same experience. The sealant is absolutely useless! (well, unless you're trying to impregnate a unicorn).
They were nice enough to contact me and send a 2nd batch, but it was still bad- and i've tried many sealants over the years, including DIY stuff.
  • + 2
 I like orange seal in the winter. In the summer it seems to dry out too quickly for me. Does anyone else who lives in the tropics have this problem?
  • + 2
 @pineapplejuicer: I also had no problems so far. Sealed holes without me realizing it, didn't dry out after more than 6 months and never formed into a ball or else inside (different Maxxis tires and compounds and a Vittoria road tire). It takes a bit longer to seal a sweaty carcass though, but you can dilute it with water.
  • + 2
 @oldtech: Norcal/Nevada native here and I can confirm. Riding in temps of around 90-105 F all summer and I have to replace it every month or so. Not an issue though, for me at least, because it's so easy to clean out of a tire. Also need it here on the west coast with all the puncture vine/goat heads.

I'm also interested to see what someone from an even hotter climate has to say

 I just put olive oil on my brake rotors. Go way faster and have a nice Bolognese sauce when I get home.

 is Orange better than Stans and Bontrager? My jug just ran out. And have anyone ever used a syringe like this? www.amazon.com/dp/B07DZB3TVH/ref=pd_luc_rh_sspa_dk_huc_pt_expsub_0?psc=1
  • + 1
 @High-Life: I use a syringe - it's a cheap ebay one. Unscrew the valve core, put the valve on an angle (say 45 degrees) so that bubbles don't trap the sealant so much, and slowly squirt it in. I don't have a plastic tube to connect it, but I don't see that I need it. I'm sure you could source some if you did... $12 seems a lot for that though, particularly if you already have a valve core tool. Mine probably cost me $3...
  • + 1
 @oldtech: Yes. The standard Orange seal doesn't dry out as quick as their Enduro Sealant.
  • + 5
 @fatduke: Peatys Sealant is the worst MTB product I've ever used. The nasty glitter sticks to everything. Your tires, rims, clothes, garage floor. Such a waste of money. Glad I threw it in the bin.
  • + 1
 @nowherenear: Each to their own I guess I’ve had Stans sealant ball up on me in the past, not seen many stockists of the orange stuff.
  • + 3
 The sealant reminded me of filling my tires with yogurt, and sealed about as well too. The stuff from Muc-Off was equally bad. Ironic that their consistency and packaging were nearly identical.
  • + 1
 @nowherenear: They don't call it "Unicorn Jizz" for no reason...
(I seriously hope i'm not the only one who calls like that...)

 Couple drops of dish soap in a spray bottle works a treat when I need a wash. Usually water from the hose and a brush/rag is enough. Rubbing alcohol on the brakes.

No aerosols. No extra packaging. No shipping across the globe. No mark up costs.
  • + 4
 truth. dawn extra dishwash soap for bike and moto.
  • + 2
 A teaspoon of clothes washing machine powder in a bucket with warm water and a brush for me. Use it all over my bike include washing brake rotors/brakes and never have any issues with contamination.
  • + 5
 Peaty's a rad dude but yeah...unnecessary stuff
  • + 2
 I’ve used a re-fillable / re-chargeable aerosol can of rubbing alcohol for years - awesome for cleaning up anything without any residue or water, especially small parts like headsets. Costs about $1 to refill it again.
  • + 1
 @53119: I use Dawn extra on everything! Even tough laundry stains. I figure if it's good enough to use on animals who get soaked in oil when there is a spill that it's good enough for my uses.

I'm not a focus group victim.

 @thebradjohns: Laundry powder works great for cleaning hands after servicing your vehicle. Leaves the skin dry after repeated use, but works mint in a pinch.

 Probably just brake cleaner available at and auto parts store - and not environmentally friendly at all.
  • + 26
 'Environmentally safe' .....'for the user. That is not environmentally safe and is highly misleading. Its human safe. But the brake cleaner clearly isnt biodegradable. Its not safe for the environment. Either be green or dont, but dont pretend to be, that sucks. And producing a product that 'can be recycled in the UK' isnt the same as a product that is easily recycled. Greenwash isnt cool.
  • + 2
 Does a product that completely evaporates really need to be biodegradable? How does that work?

I'm still waiting for a 'green' degreaser lol.

Where is this all coming from dude?
  • + 3
 Peaty's: Let's make it environmentally friendly!

Also Peaty's: Let's put it in an aersol can!
  • + 1
 @skerby: Pedro's citrus degreaser. Biodegradable, water soluble and works great.
  • + 0
 I'll give it to everyone for citrus degreaser. I can get behind that being more friendly than typical aerosol brake cleaner. I just have been spraying the aerosol stuff my whole life and it has never harmed me or my immediate environment, the stuff completely evaporates.

 @bombdabass: Green marketing is a thing. Just like how they market a lot of women's products with breast cancer - 'Buy our product because we support breast cancer'. These companies can & will do/say anything to increase or maintain their profit margins. All they want is our money.

 Guy Martin is doing what Peaty is doing, but he is doing it properly.

 Still have a large bottle of the sealant and a pouch in my 'never use' spares box. Never again. It didn't work on the first puncture I had after using it, then after an accident trying to seat a stubborn tire with a compressor, it glitterified my balcony, a fox jersey and a new pair of 5.10s. I can confirm that the glitter DOES NOT come off. Ever. And that my balcony can be seen from about 20km away when the sun hits it. Stan's all the way.

 I’m sorry but this comment made me laugh pretty hard. Must add I’m a victim of the stuff as well, with part of my floor looking like a disco ball for a while..

 Looks more like adult lubricates.

 Dissolves bearing grease, it's in an aerosol can, the sealant is junk, grasping at straws Peaty.
  • + 6
 Nothing new, get stuff from an auto parts store that would do the trick.
  • + 4
 Ssshhhh dentists don't wanna hear this, $2 degreaser from Supercheap and $10 Isopropyl alcohol from Mitre 10 does the job for brakes, cleaning the paintwork and suspension servicing.

 This is a product for middle aged men who feel they didn’t achieve their goals, the chance is gone, arthritis, muscle atrophy kicks in, responsibilities grow, teenage kids are milking them, wife is unappealing, cannot get it up without pills, finding something new and exciting on pornhub takes more and more time, visits to the toilet take longer and longer, and longer... son walks around with fresh lassies but can’t land any, the prospect of getting quality genes into the family gene pool is slipping away... They just want to achieve a but if fun. A bit of “old guys rule” before it goes into “ old guys still rule” and “old guys still rule, isn’t it?” “Old guys, do they even?”. And Peatys products do just that. Give them idea that an older chap can still kick youngsters ass

 @wildedge586: @Monkeyass - no, I am 37, shagging my wife big time. Once you've been to the void you see the world through it's gaze... and I wrote what I see in specimens in pubs on Football match night. I just changed it into MTB. I know a few sad pricks too. I feel for them. Not for who they are, but that they feel so shitty and cannot appreciate what they have.

 in truth waki’s reflection is very true take on aging, folks deal with it in different ways. But those who do not, are normally those who didn’t deal with being young very well either. Elements of the process suck, but so many positives to it too...widsom, self-reflection, parenthood and not having to wackoff to porn three times a day are up there.
But buying a cheap bike products that potentially supports a person that was at the forefront of the sport for so many years is definitely not amongst the worst elements of aging.
  • - 2
 @Monkeyass: just don’t buy “old guys rule” T shirt... as I am aging and my peers are aging I see different approaches to the process. But too many long after memories of past they didn’t have. When “one day” suddenly changes to “I wish I would”. When societal pressure while advancing up the career ladder makes you reflect on risks you take, as if aspiring to best possible retirement money, driving a black Mercedes with beige leather to a villa in Spain to drink pretentious wine was not a risk. Look, on my way to gym I pass exclusive villa with bug windows where I often see an old distinguished man inside. I’d love it all... but now, I have something he would give everything to get back. I want to enjoy my body, enjoy who I am. These are some last years of athleticism. Showing my kids some vigor and spirit, lead by example. But so many just succumb to “old is cool anyways”. And wisdom, man... not really. I see youngsters at my office, they can way more and are way sharper than what I could when I was their age. And people who are 10years older than me - Most of them are just 10 years older than me. The climate they grew up in didn’t sharpen them enough. We have 33yr old girl who kicks ass big time, gets clients to the office, new jobs, she is damn good. Responsible for several big, biiiiig clients. Same at previous work. 27yr old project manager. She kicked out two pricks from the leading roles using nothing more but sheer dedication and fast learning. We all love to pity or ridicule millennials but there are some monsters swimming in that insta pool. They grow fast and bite hard in such a polite manner, you almost feel happy they kicked you out.

Peaty? Come on... he’s a great lad, legend, but these products, pfff...

 Since this comment has devolved into an old guy vs... whatever... thing... let me just say this, (and no, I’m certainly not defending @WAKIdesigns ):
‘Old guys’ who wear ‘old guys rule’ T-shirts were 20 about 10 minutes ago. I’m ‘middle-age’ and I can tell you I don’t know how it happened. It’s a blur. When I was ‘young’, ‘old’ people told me ‘it goes by faster and faster.’ It’s not that I didn’t believe them, it’s that I didn’t understand just how right they were.
Enjoy being ‘young.’ Serious. Someday you’ll be middle-aged and feel exactly the same as you do now at 20...but you’ll be older.

 @jeremiahwas: true statement, my dad once said the same when i ask him what it feels like to be getting old and knowing you have less time left than you've had. He said it feels like being a twenty old trapped in an old mans body.
Not sure its devolved, how people deal with aging is an interesting topic...better than Peaty's lubes anyway.
  • + 0
 @jeremiahwas: there are people like my wife who didn’t have much childhood and were middle aged since being 10. One of my cousins turned 55 the moment he got married at the age of 25. His brother is 39 now and is a freaking teenage, selfish a*shole. Keep falling in love, keep trying stupid shit, keep meeting all sorts of people from different ages, cultures, peer groups, don’t settle for comfort, don’t think you are right because even if you may be, it may not matter. Don’t surround yourself with one small group of people that sooner or later starts licking each other arses.
