what to do if I'm out on my bike and the rim strip breaks?
I've read about using newspaper. Does that actually work (if I could
any)? What about using the old tube somehow, how do you get it to stay
place? (The thought just struck me of using the glue in the repair
make a strip cut from an old tube into a continuous band.)
You'll find that patch cement is pretty worthless for sticking tube
material to tube material, even if you scuff it. It's one of life's
mysteries. Just cut the elastic band out of your underwear and fix
that wheel like a man!
By God, your right! I just checked the size on the label in my Jockeys
and it said "700c".
Time to lay off the gu!
Hmmm..., my underwear elastic length matches pretty well with a little
stretching with the front rim diameter on my bicycle:
Perhaps circumference? Or do you make the early Calista Flockhart look like
The two are a fixed ratio of each other of course, but rims and tires
are sized by diameter, not circumference.
