There are several posts about these. I have been using dynabeads for years, and over the years I have seen different companies come and go with the same principle. Dynabeads has been the only one to stick around for a while. They make a great product, but last year I got 3 flats in a month and the beads got expensive.

I have been using http://www.ride-on.com/ for the last couple of tire changes I have done. It will balance your tire like dynabeads, but will also seal punctures with no air pressure loss. I am really liking ride-on so far, it works just as good as dynabeads for balancing. As soon as I wear out this tires I am going to take my drill to the tire and see how it works at sealing a puncture.

I have to say (again) dyanabeads and ride-on are the only way to balance a tire with rim locks. On my XR with 2 rim locks, I have a perfect balanced tire at any speed because of these products. This says a lot about their performance. :)

Got'Em but have not used yet

Bought them for my last bike but have not tried them. If your tires have already been balance by the shop (new bike) do you leave the rim weights they used on or take them off ? Or does it matter?

You want to take the old weights off as they will add an extra imbalance for the beads to balance out.

They're not reusable? I have a tire change coming soon and I thought about trying Dynabeads.

You can reuse the beads as many times as you want assuming you can recollect them. Next time I change tires I am simply going to drill a hole in the old tire and pour them out into a container, and then dismount the tire. Simple and quick.

That's a good idea, I may try that. They usually fall out when I get the tire of the rim, so I always use new ones. On the tube tires, the tube gets reused with the beads in it, until it gets punctured. I never though of getting them out of the tube. It would be very simple to reuse the ones in the tube.

I use Dynabeads too. They work great for me. I also re-use them.

If you're using Ru-Glyde or any other bead lube, be sure to use it sparingly. You don't want to slop it inside the tire because then the beads will tend to stick there.

I'm about to change tires and install the DynaBeads myself. I am planning to remove the stock weights on the rims and save them just in case I have a problem.

A couple riding buddies use these as well and have nothing but great things to say about it.
