There must be a million things to do with the empty tubes.
I keep my torch in one, and by wrapping a bit of inner tube round the torch to make it a snug fit in the tube I can use it as a diffuser. By sliding the torch in or out of the tube makes a great difference in the amount of light it casts.
Just remove the labels first! Easily good enough to read by with a reasonably powerful torch.
I use one of these:-
you don't have too many options on choosing the type of BB
With PF 30 there is only the simple option of choosing a better bit of kit
not a different bit of kit
unless you want to make some significant changes
like a different frame
or a different crankset
They are distributed by Madison, so any shop should be able to get you one. I just fitted one for someone, but they supplied it, I think they picked it up in a local bike shop. I was impressed with the quality, compared to the one that came out (which sounded similar to yours!)
Even if the superglue goes through (which I have never noticed) if there is any wax left on the inner tube it won't let the glue stick. I have repaired tyres like this for years, and never ever had a problem.
I was hoping to ride out there from Reading and say hi, and swim a bit, but it was always a bit marginal, now I know I can't make it.
Pump the tyre up to maximum, drip a bit of superglue in the cut, let the tyre down till the cuts close up, wait a bit, pump them up again, et voila, sealed cuts.
lovely post, makes me want to go and ride there again
That is such an epic tune!
(I have it dubbed somewhere, let me go and have a little search)
How about some LKJ
