My front tire had a small hole in it so me and my friend (from_xr_to_cr) took the tube out and patched it. How long will it hold up? I know i know you are all going to say go get another tube for it, and i will, its just we were on vacation this week and it happened friday and if i ordered a tube i still wouldnt have it so we patched it. It seems to be holding up but i havent been able to ride it yet. I bought a patch kit that is made for bicycle and motorcycle tires.. And also we couldnt get the new Dunlop Front tire we put on on with the rim lock.. I know you are all going to say put the rim lock back in, but we tried and tried to get the bead seated where the rim lock wasnt but we couldnt. I also dont have one in my rear tire and i havent for awhile and that has held up just fine. I dont ride MX just trails..
