for anyone asking about riding on plugged tires, i just found out riding in the rain is a bad thing. I plugged my tire a week ago and have put over 100 miles on the plug with no problems highway and aggressive riding alike. Last night i rode home in the rain from work and everything seemed fine except when i went to leave for work this morning the tire was flat. It seemed that the water stripped away all the adhesive glue and cement stuffand just the fiber of the plug was there all dried up. Good thing i already ordered a new tire that should be arriving today, but i had to get a ride to work and i have to find a way to get my bike to the shop to have the new tire put on when i get it. By the way the plug was for a very small hole just off center in the middle of the tire on the flat part of the tire, not in the tread. And also plug was put in by a proffesional tire guy.
