The good news: Despite having the roads with lot of debris etc...I did not get any flats this winter with the Conti 4 Seasons tires. They seem to be much better against puncture than the Vittoria Open Pavé that I otherwise use.
The bad news: I have just checked my tires and I am quite amazed how many small cuts they have on the outside. Some are not deep but some are quite deep! I also had one with some small piece of metal inside that I removed.
So my question to you: how do you repair all these cuts in the outside of the tires?
I was thinking of putting some patch glue in order to "close" the cut in the tires...Not sure if it would work....
How do you repair these tires? Or do you just leave these like this until you decide that there are too many and you change the tire itself.
Let a little air out , super glue and use a wire tie around rim tire until dry.
Ordinary superglue is pretty much useless unless you are very careful and pretty lucky.
With the flexible stuff i just let the tyre down, glue and wait for a few minutes (ok, usually until my next ride) then pump up and go.
Pinarello F10 - Ultegra 6800 - Carbonspeed C38 - Tubeless
I'll leave it up to you to figure out the other 30%. If you are in any way offended, that's on you.
Leave it to cure overnight and it's pretty good.
A few stitches and a patch of nylon cloth glued on the inside, held up well until the rider got a 2nd, larger cut...
It fills in the cut so nothing else gets in there. Just need to clean the tire a little for it to stick.
Courir c’est mourir un peu
