Where to buy a tire without the nail finder in it .

Well first chance to ride in about two weeks. Nice scenic ride to cherohala market and the bike store. Well while I was sitting drinking a water someone asked did I own the kawi V and I said yes. They told me there was a tack in my tire. After a few choice words I took a look and decided it was in there pretty good and was not leaking. So rode it home and plugged it . Thougnt I would take some pics of the plugging.

hex wrench attached then turn plug gos inDSC_0036.jpg
plug in tire pull slightly to seat plugDSC_0037.jpg
fill tire with air cut plug flush with tire tread and your done.
I use co2 cartridges but am going to by the small slime pump.
As the co2 is not very economical but nice to have.
Any how since this is the second time I have been miles from the house and found a nail in my tire I decided to figure out how to keep my plug kit under the seat. Necessity is the mother of invention. Well any how I think this is a nice kit to have easy to use. Takes maybe 10 to 15 minutes to plug and that is if your slow like me. Last plug lasted as long as the tire hope this one does to. And yes it does fit under the seat although I did not get a picture of it gos in nest to the tools.
