I doubt anything would penetrate your saddle bags from a can of WD40 or Slime inflator it would be more like an egg exploding in a microwave. One big mess no real damage.

The Mountain Bike community swear by the stuff.

Works great in 4x4 tyres as well.

I run slime in my mountain bike tires if you don't you are bound to get a flat bicycle tire from thorns in the brush.

Well, I made my decision. I called my daughter this afternoon and told her that she just bought me a Slime Power Sport Tire Inflater Kit an a 8oz. bottle of Slime Tube Sealant for Christmas.

She sounded less than impressed but gee whiz, look at the time I saved her!

BTW, I also told my wife the the lowers for the C50T, that I bought for her to give for Christmas arrived today as well.

Buy your own stuff for Christmas. You always get just what you want and never have to return anything.
