RE: 🚴 Catastrophic Tire Failure In Suriname 🚳👎
It scared the dickens out of little Monkey-B, but luckily we weren't in the middle of hard turn or anything like that, just casually riding straight at low speed with no traffic.
Definitely good to always care some bits and pieces like you said. I do that here in Suriname and the USA, but in Cambodia it's all too easy to get a professionally done patch for 50 cents. They even start a fire to melt rubber, slide the tube out negating the need to remove the wheel, and then they use a clamp to make sure the patch adheres strongly.
I've had tubes in Cambodia with 14 or more patches before replacing, shame it isn't so easy and cheap here. The user-friendliness of Cambodia is unrivaled.
