Hello,

I have a slow puncture on the wall of a CX tubular tyre.

Does any one have advice on repair? Do sealants work?

Thanks

    sealant may work, depending on the size of the hole. I've had tubs repaired by this guy.. http://www.tubular-tyre-repair.co.uk/

    Are you sure it's a CX tubular and not tubeless. If tubeless use a patch on the inside. Try cycleclinic website for tips and spares.

    Sealant fixed a tub for me today so it worth a try unless it has a latex tube in which get it repaired as if you let the tub go flat the tube can stick to itself and that game over for the tub.

    Fixing a puncture in a latex inner tube in a tub isn't that difficult but it takes a while. I've fixed my Challenge Limus doing this:
    Pull tub off rim.
    Remove about 6 to 7 cm of the base tape around the puncture.
    Unpick the stitching and pull just enough of the latex tube out so you can attend to the puncture.
    Use a small piece of spare latex tube as a patch (from an old tube if you have one) and stick on with normal puncture patch glue.
    Sew the tyre back together, and stick the base tape back on with fabric glue (Wilko sell it).
