Ned, it's a build the bike with what you have laying about and pretend to the wife it's costing naff all type of build. I'm quite looking forward to it. I have always been a bit of a tyre skinflint and am interested to see what they offer.m I think a mobile phone might be my new puncture kit!
On that note, are you saying when using glue, there is enough residual stickiness to hold a new tyre on to get you home?
Right, I see where you're coming from. However, ringing the missus up to come and collect you miles from home might need some explaining.................
It did with mine..........................
If you use the 'recommended amount' of tyre cement then there should be sufficient still on the rim and spare (provided it's been used before or pre-glued lightly) to get you home. I've always used the late lamented Dunlop (still got some which I use now) which stayed relatively sticky for quite a while. Can't comment on the modern stuff but I remember Clement seemed to go hard.
Today is the yesterday of tomorrow.
