I haven’t had to remove a tire as yet so haven’t experienced cleaning up the dried out crap. I know cleaning it of the brake track is a real issue. Acetone has been mentioned on these boards as a solution which I will give a try next time.....

My excess glue came off the brake track ok with acetone. Dont use water as they suggest though, turns into a white sticky gooey mess. Learnt my lesson there mate.

in prep for long rides i tend to over-inflate a bit on the basis they'll lose some
You can put about a thimble full of talc powder in (use a dry Stans bottle). That will greatly reduce air loss.
does talc powder have any interaction with sealants.
seems like it would get gummed up

To be honest I'm looking forward to it, so many guys on here have explained to me how to do it that it really doesn't seem to difficult. Let's be honest this is WW and gluing is lighter. I want to be in the gang to.
Don't forget tape has higher rolling resistance too. Good decision :)
i haven't gotten farther than this in the thread, but can someone explain how tape has more RR than glue?
