Postby off-one » Tue Jun 12, 2007 20:34 pm

The puncture gods have really been against me lately, how many patches have you lot put on one tube, four to me seems a bit much to me.

don't bother with patches, just replace the tube

It won't be now you have said that!! You should never tempt the puncture Gods!!

As for me, no patches! But I'm a lazy Sod! I have three tubes with holes waiting for me to bring them back to life.

Got two on each... But they are very slowly loosing air, so me thinks they need replacing... Agree with the puncture Gods thingie... When I started, I was talking to the guy in the shop how I hadn't had a puncture in 10 rides, and the next day I got two!
