Clearly, I have upset the puncture fairy. Today my daughter had a flat and, as I seem to be responsible for such things, it's a job for me

As you know MtB I'm a big fan of Marathon Pluses, but I've decided against recommending to your nearest and dearest - without you, dear heart, this forum would be a touch on the quiet side! Besides, all those rippling sinuous muscles going to waste...

PS Dave.  If anyone tries to sell you Conti's CX Speed tyres, run for the hills.  They are made of cheese.  Comfortable, supple cheese but cheese.

Fixed the damned thing this morning but hey, it kept me away from mowing the lawn.  

As daughter lives five miles away I have once more determined to teach her how to fix her own.  She will, of course, remember the technique for a puncture-free year, then when it's needed she will have forgotten everything 'cause of the lack of practice.  

I tell her I won't be around for ever to do these  jobs but she reckons decent solid tyres are just around the corner.  Any time after that I'm free to pop my clogs.

You have suffered enough MtB, I shall be speaking to the Puncture Fairy at this morning's huddle. Love, kisses and hugs, the Washing Up Fairy x
