They were put on the rims by a LBS who has buiolt several bikes in the past for me. AlSo is it worth trying to seal any potential gap between the tyres and rim - an...

Re: Key broken off in U bar lock

I'm unclear as to why you think I'd call the Fire Service or that it had not occurred to me that a new lock might be needed

Re: puncture protection

sorry for the confusing Description its a bit like the Zefal option but I've been told that can produce punctures between the tyre and tube -I was thinking in particular this should not occur as the inner tube rests on cloth rim tape anyway by the rim. I may try tubeless tyres as I've read that they...

puncture protection

Has anyone used a thin strong band of material to go round the centre of the tyre with another eg old style rim tape on the tyre (inner side) - both would have to be stuck in place

Thanks in advance

Mending tubeless tyre

If I get a puncture on a tubeless tyre is there any way of mending it with kit I can carry with me?

Is there any kind of tube I can carry with me to use?

Thanks in advance

CCTV/Evidence

Having been told by PLOD that there were no evidences so ( we can't be bothered?) so take it further it occurred to me afterwards that as the near miss was bang in the centre of Derby there would be CCTV - could this not be used?

Memory retention of info when stressed in shock

After the usual near miss I have on occasions found myself going into shock.

How can I ensure I retain such info as vehicle reg. nos and also is it not possible for highway CCTV to be used as evidence of incident?>
