Ok, this sounds stoooopid, but please be leniant...
After all the 'broken chain' hell I went through on wednesday, today, I had a puncture. Booooo..
So i cracked open the PRK, and tried to patch the hole. It was on the seam, which is never a good thing, but it's been so long since I fixed a puncture, I stood there wondering why the heck the patch wouldn't stick properly. It was sliding all over the place, and not really sticking properlu. In the end, I rammed the tube back in, and pumped it up, hoping a 'pressure seal' would be made with it.
So far, so good, but the two questions (this time) i have are.
1) Am I lacking patience? I waited 5 mins (I wanted to get home for poker) and it still wasn't attached
2) If I've got a puncture over the seam, am I best just to buy a new tube, due to the problems that may cause?
With a 10+ mile commute each way, I can't face a flat half way - so any advice, mocking, humour or otheriwse is both entertaining, and appreciated.
And in case you care, I lost at poker. Wine is not good...
