I've personally never ridden on Latex inner tubes.
If I get a puncture on a latex tube I'd prefer to be able to fix it, given they're a lot more expensive than regular butyl tubes.
My research suggests
- No, nothing works, you need to replace the whole tube whenever it punctures
- No, but you can knot them to isolate the hole and then reinflate for the ride home, where you replace the tube.
- Yes, with regular tyre patches and vulcanising fluid,
- Yes, with regular tyre patches and rubber cement
- Yes, with latex patches cut from another latex tube, and rubber cement
- Yes, pre-glued patches (ie "stickers")
But for everyone claiming one of the solutions works, someone else says that it doesn't work.
Is it possible to Patch a puncture on a latex inner tube? and is the patch permanent or only a get-home fix ?
