You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Hmmm, its not very 'out there' is it? I'm a little disappointed if I'm honest ;P

Nothing wrong with the colour, likes a bit of pink me... :D 8)

Oh, and stay away from lycra, there's nothing right about it unless you're a female with an amazing figure and big boobies! :D :D :D

And excuse the newbie question,but this no-tubes lark means that I shouldn't need to bother lugging a pump and innertube round with me too yeah? Should be 99% resistant to punctures? never gone tubeless before,do I ned to do anything different to tubes?
Cheers.Paul  :)

touching wood (or at least wood effect laminate), I've never had a puncture since going tubeless. However, I still carry a tube and a pump for general riding just in case as i think holes over a certain size never get filled with the white gunk  :o

Remember Josh a couple of years ago?

"I've not punctured since I went tubeless.."  Well, fair play to him, he didn't puncture that day either, but he did burp all his air out on an awkward landing 5 minutes later.

My favourite "I've not punctured since I went tubeless" story is Billings in France. He trotted out this line at the start of the week. During the week he had 10 flats...

As I remember, he actually did puncture a little bit after that too.  Riding down the cycle path in Clyne his tyre decided it wanted to be closer to the ground.  Pretty sure his forum signature still references it.

And that bike, oh my god my eyes!!  I can't decide if that's a good thing or not yet.
