hi ladies. i have gone through the puncture routine with my husband. yes i can take off the wheel and replace the inner tube or patch it up with one of those lovely sticky things and although i hate to get my hands dirty felt quite proud to achieve this great task only to be totally let down (literally) there is no way in the world i can pump the tyres up with a hand pump to significant pressure. now i am no fatima whitbread but nor am i a weakling. so girls or boys , when out on the road how do you overcome this ?
