Tub repair

Take one punctured tub.

Make surigical incisions and drag out latex inner tube and find hole -in this case, entry and exit wounds...

Repair as normal -two patches needed for this badboy.

Take one roll of tub thread and a needle with a reaaaly big eye.

Differing techniques used for this bit. I use a pair of pliers.

Again, not sure what's best to use for gluing the base-tape. I used an Epoxy Resin.

  1. good post Ben. I'm not surprised you needed two patches - there was a bloody great big spoke all the way through the tube! I'd sack your wheelbuilder too haha. Kevin's got some special glue for sticking back base tapes which he got from America.
