    I just hold my thumb over where the bubbles are coming out. Then I'll use the sandpaper on that area to rough up the tube some. Pretty easy to find even after drying the area.

    The most recent was a couple of years ago. My bike was in the back of my car when the car was stolen. Fortunately it was more of a joy ride and they didn't know the value of my bike in the back.
