Yes you can always fix it with good material but the cost of a spare tire now precious little? I helped several people in my street they had no keys and knowledge of technique servants who knew only one office in their life I by car to a bicycle repairman what he did put a bin and new which was not so expensive.


Correction to step 3! Lubricate the patch but not the spot on the thin band in the glue let it dry for a moment and then the patch pressing it.
