- Is this tyre totally knackered?
Thanks for the advice folks.
I’ll have a go with some linen thread, superglue and a non stretchy boot material. Might be really paranoid and switch it over to the rear wheel.
The liners might be a good idea too, since they don’t seem to be the most puncture proof tyres I’ve ever tried.
I’ve seen worse for sale in the classifieds.

Punctured/slashed sidewall on Friday night. Put in a new tube and a patch on the inside of the tyre in the hope that would hold it together… that hasn;t worked.
It’s a 35c Small Block 8 and the cut is jut over a centimetre long. Only put them on a couple of weeks ago, so slightly loathe to bin it so soon 😥
Better boot, stich or ditch? Any advice?Posted 5 years ago
Heard the smallblock described as ‘predictable’ recently. 😀
Utterly terrifying in the wet, but it’s on my commuter so probably only going offroad in the dry when I fancy an extended journey home from work.
Here’s my shonky repair effort. Superglue + linen thread + milk carton boot.
