If you have one of these...


You can turn this...


Into this...


And keep on riding...hopefully.

as some added insurance you might also use a glue type tube patch on the inside of the tire. I did this with a cut maxxis tire that I continued to run tubeless for another 6 months. FWIW.
PS. your your sewing skills are impressive, Anne has done well domesticating you!

There's a Park tire boot on the inside. Tonight will be the real test, CX practice at Chili Greens. I might try and layer some Aqua Seal over the top too. After I did it, I pumped it up to 80 psi and it held over night without any additional tearing. Fingers crossed.

As far as Anne goes, later that night she asked me If I could shorten some sleeves on a shirt of hers, that's what I get.

For some reason I have three of them too.

Was hoping you'd pick up on that.

It was probably about that long ago since I fixed a tubbie.
