<<Hey guys,
Have any of you done serious miles on a plugged tire?
Picked up a nail today in my rear tire, near the middle. Pulled it out and 
plugged it (rope type).
I have to ride from New Orleans to Houston tomorrow. Expect to be doing 
mostly 75-80 on the superslab with maybe short bursts of 90-100 where 
I've been scouring forums on the web and the findings are nof conclusive. As 
many naysayers as people who scoff at them.
Any real life experiences from members of the list?>>

I've never had a problem plugging a tire with the rope style plug I've used 
lots of glue with it and sometimes used two plugs in a single hole if it was 
big enough. They've always held fine and have never been an issue.
