Wow!!

I had a broken key cut into the rear tire once-had to put 2 plugs in to sort that leak.

Had a puncture once on the way from Infanta,fixed it quickly but bomb damaged the small valve in the stem
Had no valve as spare so each 5 km stop inflate for 80 km..lesson carry bombs and spare valves :thumleft:
