Got my first puncture on this bike this morning after 4 years. I was on the blue section of SBR and thought the odd sound was coming from a van in front. The tyre was embedded with blue grains of grit but that can't have caused the blowout. Had to google 'how to fix a puncture'
Fortunately it's the front wheel with a 'quick release', don't fancy tackling the rear with the chain and gears. Instead of repairing the puncture might as well buy a new tube. You'd have thought someone would invent a puncture proof tyre.
