Patching urethane tubes(3 posts)

Anyone have any clue how to fix these puppies. I got a pincher the other day and come to find out the glue that came with the tube was too old to be of any use. I tried regular tire cement but that didn't do squat. Anyone know anything specifically made for urethane, or perhaps something that has enough adhesion that it doesn't matter what you're sticking together?

But the question is, where to get one? These tubes were the great breakthrough of the '80s, and then promptly disappeared when all kinds of problems surfaced. Your simple solution is to retire the tube to file 0 and get a regular tube. Otherwise, it's Google for you - let the wild goose chase begin!
ehhh, I think I'll just buy a new tube :) nmJervis
