Oil in spoke hole damaged tube?
My bike has 26x1.95 tires inflated to about 40-50 lbs.
Last year I put in Velox cloth rim tapes, tire liners and new tubes and haven't had a flat until last week. I fixed the flat on the front and decided to take off the back tire just to inspect it.
It appears that oil or something dripped through one of the spoke holes, dissolved the adhesive on the tape, soaked through the tape and made a gooey bulging soft spot on the tube. I have never seen this happen with original equipment rubber rim tapes.
If I remove the Velox can I reinstall it or should I replace it with duct tape or something? I don't think I can clean it.
