I flatted my tubular in a race today. Upon getting home, i found that the culprit is a TINY thorn, no more than 1/2 mm wide.
Is there any reliable way to repair this hole easily? Super Glue? Stans? I'd really like to avoid the long drawn out repair involving cutting, patching, sewing and re-gluing.

I've been having good luck with stans this year.

I repaired a slow leaking tubular with Stan's this spring and it is still holding. Vittoria Pit Stop is another option, but my shop said Stan's is better.

Vittoria Pit Stop didn't work for me on a pin holed puncture but at $8 or whatever it's worth a try.
