Fatty Farm Field Report

The Fatty Farm Field Report is brought to by Quiring Cycles  the Quiring triple B is the fattest ride on two wheels featuring the new generation of 5.05 inch tires. Visit Quiring cycles dot net to see the next level of bicycle exploration http://www.quiringcycles.net/

We start the FFFR with a question from one of our readers Jared Kaber from Colorado…

Last week we had a Gnarly photo of a large puncture a procedure from Michael A who left a comment on last week’s post.

Thoroughly stitch the hole closed with dual duty nylon thread for buttons and upholstery. Rubber cement over the stitches. Glue a large radial tire patch in place and let it cure completely.  Re-mount, add Stans fluid, and ride it. This technique has worked for me on about 8 different repairs to large sidewall cuts. When sewing the hole/cut closed, you can also glue and  stitch a small piece of an old sidewall for reinforcement, but it needs to be very thin so it does not interfere with gluing the radial tire patch over the repair. Its worked great for me and those tires still live today!
