the only thing that got me thinking was the weight of the gel might affect the balancing of the wheel and/or making it heavier might make it move on you a little.

They may be ok for everyday street riding, but I am not sure how well they would do with any kind of aggresive riding! I imagine they don't grip well!

It's just a gel coatin on the inside to seal up any puncture. If it is coated evenly then balancing is not a problem. You may lose a few hp due to the rotating mass of the wheel and tires.

That is just too cool. The only thing I wonder is how structurally sound is that tire after he perforated it. I wouldn't stress it.

That's only for demonstration. I don't think you should ride highspeed if the tires is perforated like that.

How many flats do you guys have? I have only had about 2 in hundreds of thousands of miles and several hundred tires. I don't think that it is a worthwhile investment to coat my tires, increase the rotating mass, change the unsprung weight and reduce the flickability of the bike.

+1 to that. I carry plug kits and even a 12V MINI air compressor that hooks up to the battery when I ride anywhere close to a 100 mile round trip. Ask Cody. I saved his A$$ Little goes a long way

+2 not a good investment but buys security.

Too expensive... I agree.. Ride on is good stuff, i've read a lot of good stuff about it, but @ 14-20 bucks a tire in costs, its better to just bring a plug kit that will last and do a solid job....

Try not riding 100mph and a tire going flat won't be such a disastor...
