I have had nails in tyres before, just get it plugged at a service centre. Cheap, and I never had any problems with plugs before.

What I don't understand is, when a nail is lying on the road, how does it spear itself into the fooking tyre!!!!! It's not like it's standing on it's head when you run it over :S

Edit : Yeah you really need to work on spelling and grammar!

Well, the nail is lying there minding it's own business (probably asleep) when all of a sudden it gets run over. This usually makes the nail (or screw, or whatever) very angry, so it jumps up to see what happened, just in time to collect the rear tyre on it's way through.

That's why you usually get punctures in the rear tyre.

Thanks for making sense of the gibberish, Wally. I can't understand the original post at all.

Ring any bike shop or any tyre joint, say you have a flat on a bike, nail that needs plugging, they should do it for about 20 bucks absolute max :)[hr]

Yeah I thought it would be "woken up" by the front tyre, and then spear its way into the rear tyre as it's flicked up or something.

I just re-read the original post and it makes my head hurt :(

Ridden on a plugged tyre before, didn't have an issue.

However I don't think I've have confidence in a plugged tyre on the track, might be fine but I wouldn't feel comfortable.

that will depend on the typre of plug they use

yes a rope plug which you can do yourself would be about $20

If you want the better mushroom type then its going to cost more up to $40 if you take the wheel there , or plus labour to remove and refit the wheel
