Out on a local trail at the weekend, while bouncing through a rock garden, something put a 5mm hole in the tyre, no way the sealant could cope with that so a tube was needed. Once back home 5 minutes, an upholstery needle and 1m of dental floss effected a repair good enough to allow the stans to work and the tyre to hold air again tubeless.
We’ve had mixed success with split tyres in the past but this feels a lot stronger than previous patch jobs.
It was easy & quick enough to make it worth considering as a back country trailside repair. The needle and floss is now in our trail kit bag, not that we’ll notice, its weight is almost nil.
