    Tube Tire Q

    My father-in-law caught a screw in the rear tire of his Shadow on his way home from work this evening. Bike is now in my truck bed and I'll be taking it in somewhere tomorrow.

    - Do I just need a new tube?
    - Is a tube tire plugged where the hole was?
    - Do I need to replace the tire and tube?
    - What does the "e" stand for in e=mc2?

    Thanks in advance.

    -tube can be patched, thoug it's better to get a new one(they're cheap)
    -i think so
    -not the tire, unless it's a severe hole
    -energy

    *do shadows have tubes? thought they used tubeless...*

    His model has the spoked rims with tube tires. Thanks for the 411!

    I was just thinking it'd be a good idea to patch the tire regardless to prevent contaminants such as water or road grime from entering. Will do.

    Plus if there are any rips or tears that could protude and cut the tube it will be covered up with the patch, and you keep out the grime and krap.

    You could patch the tube, but for the price of a new one, you are better of replacing it.
