I got a pinch flat on my Continental Competition 22mm tubular tire. I added 21ml of Conti Revosealant and it fixed the leak.

I don't like putting this stuff in my tires but my other choice is to cut the tire open and patch the tube or send the tire out to be re-tubed.

What it the correct range of sealant to put in these tires? Eventually this stuff drys out. When it does what is the weight change? I have read reviews where people put in 60ml but that seems way to much. What is the point of spending so much money on light weight tires only to add 60 grams for sealant into them? If you use to little you lose effectiveness.

Location: it's raining, it must be uk
with tufo extreme i use about a quarter of a 50ml bottle if i need to fix a hole out on the road, if a hole is sealable that's plenty, adds less than 20g and will reduce further as the solvent dries out

60g would way too much, are you sure that is wrt to fixing tubs and not for tubeless? (which i'd guess is the primary application for that conti sealant give the size of the bottles)
