:lol: Oddly, in all my years of wheeling this is the first plug I have ever done. Hope it holds.

Crap...look at the size of that monster. Where did you get that?? And how long did you ride with it, do you think?

I got a nail in my 589's at Buck Island on the granite near the campsites...I put a plug in it.....and it's still there today. That was 2004 and haven't put any air in it, other than elevation changes.

I think I had it before we went to Bowman Road. I noticed before that ride the tire was a little low on air (had 2.5-3 and I run 5) but I figured it burped or elevation changes. Put it back up to 6 before our run, then Debbe took it riding on Sunday and it was flat. I have it filled to 10 right now to see if it leaks down at all.

OK dude, riding thru a construction site full of spikes is not what I would qualify as a 'weakness'.

You're supposed to WALK on the bed of spikes, not ride over them! :roll:

Ya know, if you're really concerned, you could pop that thing off the bead and patch it from the inside too. Might not hurt.

Yeah..sounds like the inside would be best.

I have noticed though, Safety Seal plugs are the best. They have slime in them. They have a killer repair kit.

I think you need Kendo, Nick, Lope, Lauren and Carrie to fix that, they are experts. They could fix that with some gum and some chew bacca.

I dont dare go to Kendo's for help. I like to prove I am worthy of my tools rather than feed his fire for giving me crap about my lack of fabrication skills! :finger: :P

It's not the same as the Pirate board, but it will have to do.
