I must be very lucky - I have never had a puncture that I didn't discover in my garage...

I must be unlucky, all mine (just two) have been in France  :084:
Apart from this, a couple of weeks ago on the Sprint, which wasn't quite leaking, but goes through to the cords....

Until the weekend I always have too. Found this one in the work car park once and was able to ride it to the nearest bike shop to get it plugged

She's home. All's well that ends well.

Not sure I would choose a 2 degree day with already slippy roads to scrub in a new tyre but its done - and at least it was sunny.

well done Sean on the fix  :028:


what compressor have you got Yellow Dog?
do you have a link to where to get one?
or can anyone recommend a good portable one i can keep in my top box?  :031:

I had one like this, kept it under the seat with some plugs that did not hold. Fancy rubber bullet's, sticky string never failed me. Just messy to haul around for the just in case.
