So fortunately my father-in-law has a truck. Unfortunately I didn't take the time to find out anything about tire repair before trying to break in my new Tomos Bullet (essentially the same model as the 'LX' in the US I think).
Anyhow, I flatted (rear wheel) about 10K from home this evening and was fortunate to have nice in-laws who were willing to pick me up.
So now a couple of questions that (unbeleivably to me) I could not find answers to in the owners manual:
1. Does anyone happen to know the size of the inner tube I need for my Tomos? Is it a standard size or will I have to search every tire retailer in the world for one? I know that I can probably patch this one but I would like to get a spare so that when it is no longer patchable I can replace it.
2. Is there anything special I should take account of when I remove the tire/fix the tube/replace the wheel? I have probably fixed 100 flats on my bicycles but I'm wondering about making sure the wheel is trued, etc?
Oh, and I should say that despite the pain of flatting in the first 100 miles, even just breaking it in this bike is tonnes of fun. Other than riding my mountain bike in the woods (which is different and feels much more like work) this is the most like a kid I have felt since, well, since I was a kid!
