Sir,

I'm planning a trip to Bhutan. I don't want to be stuck with a flat tyre in the middle of nowhere.

My bike has the usual spoked rim and tubed tyres. Can you please recommend some kind of puncture repair kit that is easy to use. Or is there something else that I can carry for flat tyres?

Thanks.

Heyy...mai8...welcome to xKmph.com
gr8 to hear about ur upcoming trip...

ABOUT the puncture repair kits: they are meant only for TUBELESS TIRES and are available for Rs.250-300 at any bike accessories shop!!
for tubed tires there isn't any proved remedy as yet...the SLIME liquids are the best you can get..but they aren't the most effective things as i've heard!!

Thanks for the reply.

Last year I did Jammu-Leh & back. Didn't have a puncture for the whole of the 2000 kilometer trip on the worst roads I'd ever seen.

But I don't want to risk it again. I guess I'll have to carry spare tubes and wrenches to remote the tyre from the rim. Any other work around? I have a Bullet. I think changing to alloy's to have tubeless will spoil the look.

the WORTH of the alloys coupled with tubeless tires, I believe is a very important thing for a tourer!!
PLUS, bullets are always heart-throbs...you never need to think about how it looks!! Wink

Hmm..I'll think about getting alloys.
Since you're from Siliguri, have you been to Bhutan? How are the roads? Are puncture repair shops and mechanics easy to find?

Get your own one kit.

Road at present is good
