It's Alive! Or Ten Miles and a Six (er, er, What Comes After Six?)-Pack Later

Or, actually, It works!

A follow-up on the how-to-fix-a-flat-when-you-don't-have-anything-to-fix-a-flat-with stuff: Not only did the knot in the tube get me home the day before yesterday, but, two days later and no air added, it still has enough air to ride. This knot-in-the-leaky-tube thing is too cool to be true.


  1. Stranded, that is pretty awesome. I've been tempting fate lately. I temporarily misplaced my CO2 inflator and cartridges so I've been flying blind with no tubes, patches or anything.

    I know I said it so now I'm probably a marked man but I'll push it. I usually only change tubes because they get so old they dry rot.

  2. I should add that the tube is a 29er. Never had to try this on a road bike, or any other bike, for that matter.
