- Tyre Repairs
Hit something very hard and cut my Dissector – the cut is a straight inch long slice between knobs on the tread part, so needs a wee repair.
I could try a big plug, but thinking a patch of some sort internally might be better, or superglue?
What have you folks done that’s worked well?Posted 1 month agocarlosMember
Always had success with a Mushroom plug (I got few free after asking nicely at the local car tyre repair centre) same as these – https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/24PCS-Car-Vehicle-Tubeless-Tyre-Puncture-Repair-Kit-Wired-Mushroom-Plug-Patch/312885743115?hash=item48d9718e0b:g:9GUAAOSwKEtdJaqW
Fitted these to sidewalls and treads. They have always lasted the remaining life of the tyre, be it on a nearly new one or 1/2 worn.Posted 1 month agohonourablegeorgeMember
Dissector’s been really good, just had it on the rear, and had fully expected to swap the DHR2 back long before now, but it’s been to Revolution bike park on a sloppy day, and down loads of local trails, and it’s braked and cornered just fine, haven’t wanted to replace it yet (well, until I tore it). Definitely a better rolling tyre than a DHR 2, and way, way better braking than an Aggressor. It’s the 3C compound.Posted 1 month agojpaceySubscriber
I had a 1.5cm tear in DD aggressor that sealed well with super glue and then a standard tube patch over laid with a strip of gorilla tape.Posted 1 month ago
The glue didn’t hold so I wouldn’t bother with that next time but the patch/tape are still going strong with no bulging after a yearNorthwindSubscriber
An inch long slice? I’m guessing it’s not an inch long all the way through? If it is, in the tread face, then it’s ****ed. You could patch it as an emergency thing but it’s for the bin. If it’s an inch long slice but not all teh way through for the whole inch, then there’s optionsPosted 1 month ago
