This thread was useful when I started to repair my own, plus watched a couple of Youtube vids.
Thanks Sam! Will peruse. Good to hear from you.
Yeah I want to replace the inners anyway so I can put some sealant in (I think I may have destroyed one inner with alcohol, trying to clean glue off the sidewalls - that or punctured around the same time i attempted to clean the tyre). Guess I will need to learn how to glue the base tape back on, I gather you use a different cement for that.
And you Ben 🙂
Yep, I’ve used Copydex with no problems. Having a spare rim is very handy for mounting the tyre and inflating while the base tape glue goes off.
