it doesn't take much....

...to ruin your biking pleasure....and cost you a fair bit of money too.I spotted this little b'std in my back tyre this morning at work.Just enough length to go all the way through.Plugged it,but it's still leaking...Luckily I have a part worn BTO14 to put on.:mad:

oldish.....

bad luck.. but if it makes you feel any better... i once got a screw through a new Pirelli Diablo on the blade... and when i say new, i mean it had done bout 200 miles!!! 

and cos of the speed rating and the damage being in the centre tread... no where locally would plug or repair it!!!!  :unsure:

Bad luck, oldish.

I had to buy a new rear tyre recently. I got a hacksaw blade in mine. It looked tiny, but it was right in the centre of the tread. Once the tyre was off we saw it had sliced right through the bands on the inside. No hope of a repair. Hated replacing one that looked good enough to get me through the winter.

Why not get it mushroomed plugged and vulcanised from the inside?

not hibernating...

..just not about as much.If I hadn't got the BT014 to put on I might have considered having the 16 plugged properly.I'll take it to the fitters with me and see what he says.He has his own bike,so should know if it will work.
