Never mind the givi bars... There's better applications for that stuff.

After the X-Prize, I offer you the S-prize:

seems like interesting stuff!

It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you.

Sounds a lot like Shoe Goo. That stuff is gold and will stick anything to anything.

I just heard of "Sugru" this morning (it was a Facebook post.) Seems like the kind of thing that would be incredibly useful.

If you didn't see the link to their website at the beginning of this page it is:

https://sugru.com/

Here is how they describe it:

Quote:
what is sugru?

SUGRU IS THE WORLD’S FIRST MOULDABLE GLUE.

Sugru is the extraordinary new mouldable glue designed for fixing, making and improving your stuff. It’s the only glue on the planet that sticks to almost anything, moulds like play-dough, then cures overnight into a durable silicone rubber. Once it’s cured, Sugru has some pretty amazing properties, making it perfect for use everywhere – from your home to the great outdoors.
Sounds like it could have an incredible number of uses both on bikes and everywhere else.

Have any of you used it? How did you like using it?

I bought a bunch for certain issues but it tends to dry out - did not buy again. Suspect there are less expensive and more durable solutions in a tube.

Did it just dry out in air or was it exposed to water, other fluids or higher or lower temperature ranges?

How long ago was it? Their web site speaks of the formulation chaining to increase its shelf life. It doesn't really speak of after the packages are open apart from it during into. A nice rubbery silicone.

So when you say dried out; do you mean that the packages dried out and were unusable? (Not a long shelve life?)

For less expensive options it would be good to know What the finish produce looks / feels / and acts like.

Both even when kept in the fridge.
I was hoping it would armor the joints for earphones which tend to fray ...worked nicely but then gets too stiff and it peels off rather easily.
Too long in the fridge ( years mind you ) and it slowly hardens up. I suspect there are some good uses and I'll bet there are silicone products that stay flexible
