    Buying bike parts from overseas, shipping time estimates and methods ?

    Tubeless is great but is there a primer for rubber patches ?

    Some wheels just require tubes. Often wondered as I endlessly sand the rubber prior to a patch , is there a primer to slightly etch rubber rather than use sandpaper?
