Have you ever had a puncture right on the base of the tube’s valve while
being in the middle of nowhere and without having a spare tube? It happened to me before, more times that I can remember. In few of those instances I was lucky and a friend had a tube that I could use, in some others I was the only one with a 28″ bike so I couldn’t use any of my friend’s spare tubes or none of us had any spare tubes. In the last scenarios where I can’t use a spare tube, I desperately tried to patch the impossible puncture in any way possible, wishing that one day I would wise up and stop going for a ride without at least one spare tube in my saddle bag. But that never happened.
So I had to figure out a way to patch those peculiar punctures while on the road. After some trial and error, I found the best way to fix them. Using that method you either fix it for good or you will have to pump it up every 24 hrs or so. Either way, you ‘ll have a wheel perfectly capable of taking you home.
So here is how:
That’s it! Your tube is ready!
