The electrical tape does help greatly if your using tubes,but I have used tube liners in my bikes and still nails,screws and other debree on the road has gone right through them....If your going to use a tube,go with the glime super thick 10.00 tubes at wal-mart....They help from having a instant blowout and end up with road rash,when they gets puntured they are so thick that they dont blow out,they just go flat slowly....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
