Repairing a tubeless tyre
I slashed a tubeless ready Rocket Ron at the weekend, only a few mm across, at the base of a knobble near the edge. Have patched it and put a tube in. Is there any way to repair the actual hole? I tried my luck putting sealant in again but the patch just came off and the hole is just too big to seal with sealant.. Anything else to try?Posted 5 years agoSuperficialMember
I’ve used these with good effect before. Perfect for holes that are just that bit too big for the sealant to seal. Easy to repair from the outside, too. No good on anything more than 4-5mm..Posted 5 years agoJonEdwardsMember
Usually just use a normal inner tube patch on the inside of the tyre. You need to sandpaper the inside of the tyre fairly carefully to get a good bond.
Silicon sealant to fill the hole on the outside if necessary. Superglue dries hard so tends to just crack off IME.Posted 5 years ago
And do you guys go equipped for all eventualities (tube, tyre repair kit, pump, co2 etc) or do you find you really do get a lot less punctures and therefore wing it with less kit? Big days out will stick everything in a pack but on most rides I’m using bottles and pockets so less is better.Posted 5 years ago
