Half-seven this morning, wheeling the bike out backwards and felt that mushy-resistance and got that sinking feeling.
A bent 3" nail was fast just off-centre of me 470-mile Maxxis
Pumped it up to 40psi then left it to warm-up, it had lost a few psi so as i had to be somewhere i chucked the pump in me bag and went.
Pumped it back up three more times before giving it up as a bad-job.
Got the tyre off and went in search of a repair-kit on me pedal-bike, no joy anywhere.
So, to the knobbish bit.
I decided to give Sugru a shot, making a mushroom myself. i've fixed and made all sorts with it and it's good stuff but........
I'll leave it 24-hours then when it's on i'll ride an ever-expanding route armed with a gauge and stirrup-pump .
Will i die? Does anyone care? (more rhetoric).
I'll report on here or through a psychic intermediary.
