getting around the bay without having to repair a puncture .... priceless
I went the same route...
2 puncture free newish tubes
2 brand new Schwalbe Ultremos.....$110 EACH (ok...$35 from bulk buying mate )
- damn happy I didn't pay $110!!!
3 punctures - all caused by the original damage inflicted by the poor condition of the edge of the Westgate Freeway on the Millers Road onramp (did anyone notice that we were actually supposed to turn left at Millers Road and head for Koroit Creek Road???? Maybe I should sue for a new tyre + 3 tubes + 3 CO2 cartridges
for leading us in the wrong direction
