How do I remove a patch that is leaking a small amount of air from a inner tube
Unless you are stuck and unable to get hold of a replacement tube - don't. If the patch has failed then bin the tube and get a new one.How do I remove a patch that is leaking a small amount of air from a inner tube
If the patch is badly stuck down, it should come off easily.How do I remove a patch that is leaking a small amount of air from a inner tube
I’m a S.O.C.C , that’s stingy old club cyclist make everything last . But on this I agree totally with Mr Trousers .If the patch has failed then bin the tube and get a new one.
I'm a big fan of patching damaged tubes rather than wastefully binning them, but there are limits.
I have patches that last thousands of miles, in fact most of them do. Very very rarely does an existing patch fail.Good morning,
I agree with the it should be difficult type answers and I have also found with many thin inner tubes that once there is a hole then that tube has a limited life, maybe 1,000 miles or less.
The holed area becomes some form of weak spot and the tube starts to tear under the compression/relaxation cycle as the wheel goes round, so even a good repair starts to leak as the original leak becomes a tear that is a few millimetres long and this is too much for the patch to contain.
Most puncture repair kits like to give a range of patch sizes and I get the best results using the biggest available even though it seems overkill. Little rounds patches that are 2cm in diameter seem to have particularly short lives, even if you did get 12 in the kit.
