    Default Tyre repair-Phil & Ted

    Does anyone know if somewhere like Halfords repairs the tyres on a Phil & Ted double buggy? The only other place I know for definite is 10 miles away

    My partner put tyre slime into my buggy wheels and so far... so good ... no punctures!

    They sell it at Halfords

    I've taken mine to a local bike shop. Twice I had both inner tubes go and they have ones to fit. Cost about £7 each tyre.

    I would think so, I took my tyres to halfords and they put slime in for me. Made a terrible mess when I left pram in the conservatory, tye over heated and exploded, boy that green stuff gets everywhere!
    I bought spare inner tubes off e bay and put them in myself using spoons as I don't have tyre leavers.

    Halfords do sell them, I was impressed as they even have the angle of the bit you put the air in (simple things!) I did have green slime in mine but I think due to not using the pushchair for a while when I moved everything went boom the tyre went with such a bang, I am now put off putting any in my new tyres!

    I have just ordered out and about inner tubes from their website cheaply (and they also fit the phil and teds)

    I have a husband that fixes them for me. He's a keen cyclist so has all the kit anyway. The amount of repairs we've had to do is shocking but it has reduced with the green slime - our postman jokes that I do more miles than him in a week so I can't complain given the mileage I've built up with it!

    Thanks so much-rang my local bike shop and they do it all for me for £10 whereas guy 10 miles away also puts slime in for an extra £2....will leave it over weekend and ponder as i don't need the buggy for 2 weeks now.
