So having bought a new set of wheel with some nice tubulars (FMB cotton) yesterday the inevitable happened and I got a flat.
The hole was big enough that I could not seal it with latex (I used Stan's) but at least as long as I kept the pressure low it did not lose any air and got me to the car. I changed it to continue my practice (btw I used a Tufo 215 as a spare, now I understand why most people here say Tufo are horrible, the difference to the FMB in rolling resistance and comfort was terrifying to say the least.
So when I got home I opened the casing, cleaned the tube with alcohol and patched it with a Parktool glueless patch. Sew it up, inflated it to 120 psi and it seemed to be ok for 1-2 hours but after that it lost air. As usual the parktool patches failed to withstand the high pressure.
So my question is:
What do you guys use to patch your tubular's latex inner tube?
I would hate to have to discard a 70euro tubular just like that.
When I was younger and riding tubular 20 years ago what we did was use an old latex tube to make patches. What I don't remember is what type of glue I was using. Any ideas?
