Patching latex tubes
edited April 2010
I've just fitted latex tubes to a new set of wheels I'm going to take out for their first spin this weekend. Question is, can I use a normal puncture repair kit with latex ?
I honestly don't know, but a spare tube(any kind) would be in order.
I believe you can, I have in the past and had no issues with the patch lifting.
I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
Yes you can use the same patch kit on latex. I've found that patches stick even better to latex than butyl.
Thanks all ! Fingers crossed I won't be applying any patches this weekend...
