Today’s QT comes to us from Premium Member Kerry Irons. It’s a follow-on to another recent tip. Here’s what Kerry wrote:
As a follow up to the August 11 Quick Tip Keep Your Repair Kit Up to Date, I have gotten into the habit of stuffing my punctured inner tube into my jersey pocket rather than putting it back into the seat bag.
From too much experience, I know I can forget, just as Russ Wood did, and neglect to patch that tube.
It’s ungainly and not sleek to carry a used tube stuffed into your jersey pocket, but with my punctured tube in my pocket (instead of “hidden away” in my seat bag) I’m 100% guaranteed to patch the punctured tube when I get home.
THEN – and only then – does it go back into the seat bag.
If you have an idea for a QT, fire away. We’re always looking for good info we can share with fellow roadies. We would love to hear from you with any suggestions you have. Contact us by clicking Quick Tips Ideas.
