I went out to 'kick the tyres' of Lucille yesterday and was amazed to find that both of her tyre pressures are still fine! I can't believe that some packing tape, some electrical tape and an old presta valve can do such a good job of sealing (with a little help from Stan's solution, of course). I haven't touched Lucille since about mid-September so I reckon that makes it a pretty impressive setup to stay inflated since then. Since going super-ghetto I have not had a single puncture, snakebite or otherwise and certainly had no issues with the tyre rolling off the rim as some peeps have reported. The hardtail will be next! Happy days.
