Well, got Stipe to send me some. I have to send them an empty bottle! I'll probably never need it, but I got it.

Re: Dyna Beads with Filtered Valve Cores

I have used dyna beads for about 5 years. Work good and on a 29 no glue on weights. You don't need the filtered cores, just keep stem towards top when servicing tire. Just above 9 and three...

Re: shocks
