I've heard people are hacking into virtual reality trainers and leaving virtual tin tacks on the virtual road....... virtually....really.

Do your tubes have patches on them?? IDT generates a lot of heat which can cause some patch glue to melt and leak, also old tubes durrrrent like the heat either.

you need to regularly go over your tyres with a sharp knife and scrape the glass shards out outherwise they will migrate through your tyres. you can then seal the little cuts with superglue.

Regarding the blisters. Don't remove the skin or cut it open. Take a needle with cotton thread and thread it through the blister a couple of times leaving the ends hanging from the blister. The fluid will drain through the cotton and after a day or two the blister is dry and you can pull the thread out.

Also had a puncture on the idt, with that ugly yellow tyre. A patch wore out. the pressure off the roller probably push glass etc through the tyre and pshhhhhhhh.... that pisses me off on the idt.Angry
