Re: Puncture on valve stem - solution

Last week I pumped up the tyres on my Brompton for a ride and the next day back tyre was flat, same as the OP, stem join on the tube gone. When I fix it I will be making a little rubber gasket from the old tube to slip over the stem. This is with the old single wall rims BTW
