    This^. Well, as good as might be reasonable to hope for.

    Bit of a sausage-party that 'club' innit.

    I'm raging about 'my' Insta suddenly being permeated with advertising as it is, so this bunch of no marks just made me chuckle really. 'Targetted' advertising eh?

    Is anyone else a fan of IRC here, apart from the sole UK importer (and a road.cc review I read)? Think I'l go for those but I dunno.

    But anchovies! I need to know about them. Salted or marinated?

    Linseed oil comes raw or boiled. I don't boil it!

    OK thanks dj. Will read your guide @cycleclinic, thanks. So an idiots' guide please... I'm going to write what I gathered in 10mins here:

    Schwalbe Ones? Any other rec's for 700x28 tyres? Gorilla Tape 25mm, wound twice. Inflate tyre using inner tube to seat tape. Wait? Remove tube. Seat tyre bead carefully near valves. Sealant in. How? Inflate. Use a bit of wet stuff around the bead when inflating to check leaky edges. Shake the tyres? Eat some anchovies, cut in two. Leave tyres for a day. Pray. Check pressure.

    What did I miss? Something about worms.

    So I just dipped into this thread, thinking of trying some of this shit out.

    Fuck it's complicated! Tape, sealants, boiling water, gorillas, anchovies, washing up liquid, inner tube tricks (some kind of sex play presumably) it all sounds like such a fag. Is it really worth it for road-touring sized tyres? I mean, can you really tell the difference?
