(Quote)You can also patch a flat tyre without removing the wheel and can do this by dismounting the tyre while it is still on the bike and patching the hole in the tube... only issue here is finding it.

I have a few Specialized MTB tubes that are not joined in a ring. I think they were made for DH bikes with a bolted axle. I just had to lift the tire next to the valve and pull the tube out.

I was thinking that one could take a standard tube and cut it so as it is just one long length and glue the ends. It would make it easier to change out a tube.
