Now this was fun! My son and I had to patch his rear tire – with no prior knowledge! So making use of the iPhone app BikeDoctor, BikeTutor video and a few YouTube videos we got the wheel off without breaking anything!!! My son’s bike is a Trax TFS.1D full suss. We both took turns applying our first patch. Turns out that there were two holes. Must note I wasn’t impressed with the quality of the tube or tire but for a £120 what to expect?
Made use of the following tools:
- Halfords Large puncture Kit £6 (Which I thought was better than what was offered at Decathlon)
- Decathlon Multi-tool £6
- Decathlon Presta Bike Pump £5
- WD-40 – The bolts holding the rear wheel where rock hard to turn!
The wheel just before we took it off the frame.
My mate gave me an old Paddy Hendricks 3 bike rack on my birthday. Best gift (well next to my wife’s!). Tried to find the instructions for it but the closest I came was for the Mont Blanc CM03/CM03AN. Its got so many bits to it, it made me confused! Anyhow at home today so gave it a go to fit to the car – a Audi A4 2002.
