How do you know if they work.If you get a puncture from a thorn it will mend its self , so how do you know when you get a puncture from a thorn, you may never get a puncture again and not know it, its messing with my mind :idea: :|

  • Pop the bike on the turbo and ask the missus to chuck tacks at you, eventually one's gotta stick in. All in the name of science eh!

    Pop the bike on the turbo and ask the missus to whistle to the tune of 'There's a hole in my bucket dear Liza" and chuck a pile of hedge cuttings whilst making noises like a trattor at you, eventually one's gotta stick in. All in the name of science eh!

    FTFY :D

    Round these parts the locals prefer to call them tract-ters.
