Has anyone ever replaced the tube in a tubular?
http://www.tirealert.com/ This company in Clearwater Fl replaces the tubes
in tubular tires. At $20 for the first tire they are getting expensive,
but.......In my experience, the resulting repaired tire is going to fit looser on
the rim than a new tubular of the same make. But, they replace the tube,
restitch and glue on new base tape. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
they probably just cut a tube in two, tie it to the old one and pull it around. Untie it, splice it back together and stitch up a small hole, glue the tape and you are done. No loose fit to speak of.
I'd be shocked if anyone could stitch a whole tire up for $20.00, then glue the tape and throw in the tube for that. If it's true I want this guy workin for me. Is his name David?
