Patching an Inner Tube – 2nd Attempt

Patching an Inner Tube – 2nd Attempt

As shown in a previous post (Patching an Inner Tube) , I tried to fixed a flat tyre. The result is obvious to the ear…

So, bad news. It leaks and this is already my second attempt. I can pump the tyre to55 PSI and it stays there for a couple hours before it gets flat again.

The good news is that the symptoms remain the same, which means I must have repeated the same mistake. Maybe I have not let the rubber cement (glue) dry completely before I stick the patch to it.

Some bicycle websites suggest leaving the tube overnight before using it again. But isn’t it supposed to be ready for use again quickly when we are on the road?

I need to try again.
