Temporary fix

A temporary fix to my tire problem was recommended to me by my housemate. Duct tape! The cure all for every problem right?

So apparently he has known a few people who have used duct tape to solve such problems. The trick is to place a piece of duct tape both on the inside and outside of the tire and stick the tape to itself. The tape seems to have a bit of a rough time sticking to the tire though. I'm not extremely comfortable with this fix but I'll test it out and cross my fingers that it will hold at least for a few days. (yes that's white Duct Tape I used)

  2. For sidewall holes, a dollar bill placed on the inside of the tire does the trick. The paper is very durable and its something someone would likely have on hand in the case of an emergency. Or a Benjamin if you're balla
