LOL ... I finally got to Home Depot and remembered to pick up one of these for each bike. Dang things are up to $.59 now! HA! Inflation I guess. But a good investment nonetheless.

As always another good tip from this site


I see what you did there ...

If anyone needs one of these PVC T connectors I have 2 extras that I picked up when I got mine.

Shoot me a PM and they are yours for the small postage.

So here's a question: Does anyone ever bring innertubes, even though they have tubeless tires? I've heard that some folks travelling cross country in remote locales will do this for the eventual irreparable damage. Can you even fit an innertube's valve stem through a tubeless stem hole in the rim?


I'm a man, and I can change, if I have to, I guess.

lurk
Never tried for tubeless, but I always packed a front innertube dualsporting since it'll stretch into the space for the rear.....most of the time.

From their website: "WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF THE REPAIRS? We package the kit in a polyethylene tube. It keeps the repairs clean and dry so they will be good for years."

"Years". Whatever that means...
