If you’re having a tuberous tire or not you’ll get punctured at some time so you’ll have to fix it by yourself even if you don’t have a patch kit, there are three options to do so. The first option is to tie a knot in the inner tube to isolate the hole by tying a knot as close as possible. Second option is to last-minute buy and use a few cable ties around the tire just to hold onto the rim. Third option is to keep on carrying a tire boot/tire patches everytime you’re riding by using a card from your wallet to used them to patch a tire and stick them inside where there are fine slashes that you think will gonna burst out.
“You can be unlucky enough to snap a gear in a cable and what that will mean is you’re gonna be stuck in your hardest gear now if you’re nearing end of the ride that’s no great problem you can pedal home on that gear.” – Andrew Dodd
