Returned back from tonight's ride with a flat tubular, can Vittoria Pit Stop work as a permanent fix or do I need to get the sewing kit our?

Cheers
Matt

Just go the old route in mending a tub! Sit in front of the TV and take it steady in repairing it.

Find and mark the tyre where the puncture is before you start to pull off the base tape.

Have a read.....
