I fixed a puncture This morning on my road bike, only for it to go get another this afternoon, on inspection there's a tiny slit in my conti gator skin, the tyre's relatively new so I don't want to bin it. I know tyre boots are available for mtb's, but is there anything similar for road bikes or do I just suck it up and splash the cash?
Can a road bike tyre be patched?
do-able, superglue helps, but most folk are too nervous to trust a repair at 100psi!
If it's a wee slit then should be OK.
Cheers Al, glue worth a punt, failing that its new a tyre, don't mind so much, but it's a recent tyre, I bought gator skin thinking it would be more durable through the winter!!!
My mate pinch flatted, the first replacement tube blew out the hole. The tyre was fixed with a date packet rapper and a another tube fitted. That was six months ago and it's run fine on weekly rides ever since.
Are you feeling lucky?
