Well Dave, Glad I was able to help nothing like being stranded on a bike. And I've now joined after you suggested it to me 👍

Fair play to you Jeff One of the good things about Ireland is if you're stranded someone will stop and give you a dig out

You feel fairly vulnerable when these breakdowns happen far from home Dave, never mind the frustration. What a result though. I can imagine the relief when Jeff told you he had all the kit...
Hats off Jeff! You're the man..

Yup, was a stroke of luck that Jeff spotted me, although quite a few other bikes either stopped and signaled at me wondering was I okay so fair play to them. Nice to see

Ha ya I thought he was taking the piss when he said he had the full kit at home I don't know anyone with a tyre machine and the valve stems out in the garage! Had the front wheel off, stem replaced and back on in about 20 minutes I'd say. Absolute result. Shout out to the lads offering their help on here too, yiz aren't a bad bunch

glad you got sorted bro

now Id advise you on getting a set of these and some spare gas bottles, it will take 3 to give your tyre enough pressure to get to the garage to pump her up.
I never leave home without it under the seat

3 euro cant go wrong, they have saved my ass a few times the past few years
best invention since the wheel

I also have a mini compressor that you can get in tobaz centra shops for 15cuid, does up to 80psi and just cut the car ciggarett power adapter and soilder on some croc clips for your bikes battery.
(fits under the seat too, just stick them in a ziplock bag)

I use Puncturesafe in my bike and cages and haven't had a puncture in years. I buy the 5 litre drum with the pump which makes it very easy to do. About 65 and that will last for years. One fill for the life of the tyre. I know some people don't rate it but I'm a fan.
