I had a bit of an off yesterday and now have a hole in my Castelli tights; does anyone know where I can get them repaired??
Local tailor, the missus?
I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
If you bought them from Castelli Cafe, you may be able to get a really cheap replacement under their scheme. Not sure otherwise...
I had an reply from Castelli in the UK recommending this stuff
http://www.amazon.com/Neoprene-Wetsuit- ... B001HWFJNS
so I'll give it a go
yes iron-on wetsuit repair material does very well, i repaired some body paint bibs that were damaged in an off, they lasted for ages
that link is for a usa supplier, you can get it in uk too
make sure the bib fabric is flat and not under tension
cut the patch to size, round off corners
put the patch on the inside
get the iron temperature correct
do it on a hard surface and apply a
of pressure - an ironing board is too soft, try thin cotton over a cork tile on a solid surface
test the bond all around the patch, if you can lift an edge then go back and iron it harder and/or hotter
my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
