Pathfinder (full movie)

If you love to explore the outback via cycle power, you’ll enjoy this:

Near the half-hour mark, one of the tubeless tires is cut by a rock. The rider uses an ingenious method of sealing the breach, inserting part of a latex glove, and then melting it into the torn area with a match! Seems like latex and matches would be a wise portion of any backcountry cyclist’s riding kit.

    He actually sealed it with a lighter, not a match, but that’s just nit picking ;) Good video, thanks.
