Even if you're riding tubeless it's always prudent to carry a spare inner tube with you just in case. But once your inner tube becomes punctured, what do you do with it? Did you know that an inner tube repaired with a vulcanising patch kit is just as good as a new tube and can be used again or kept as a spare? Rubber production is not a very environmentally-friendly process, so repairing and reusing your punctured tubes makes environmental sense as well as saving you a few quid. So the next time you get a flat, stick your old inner tube in your back pocket and take it home to fix. If you're not sure how, we'll show you what to do. We'll also have a Sheffield CycleBoost e-bike with along with us, so if you're interested in finding out more about how to loan one for free for a month, pop along and have a chat to us.
