My rear bike tyre was flat. :scrambled: Had a hole and needed repairing. It was sitting in the shed there for a looong time waiting for me to muster up the guts..

Just now I was thinking "What the heck.. I can solve a Rubik's cube in less than 30 seconds today, I know without tutorials how to build a 6x6 back up from scratch, then I MUST be able to solve THIS puzzle too, I mean.. come on!"

So.. took the bike, put it upside down and went on and... FIXED it!

My dad showed me once, so I knew what to do and the right order of things, but this time really on my own.. hey it ain't that hard.. take air out, then take outside off, peel inner out and put in water, find the hole. Then fix hole and put puzzle back together. It is all a matter of algorithms really (or is that commutators?), just reverse them and you're done. :solved:

After that give the D face some good R spins and you have air in them O's again. :lol:


*grins and bes proud* Can fix cube, can fix tube too. Girl Powerrrrrr hehe :mrgreen:
