Methinks the mudguard (fender) doesn't have to be fixed on the bike...can't one just hold a mudguard under the upturned bike, and turn the wheel through the water trapped in the mudguard as in the photo? Looks like a winning idea, a very nifty time saver, Laurence.

Brilliant idea. As was commented on, not necessary to use mudguards attached to bike, but the basic idea is great. I will be carrying something light but appropriate with me to help me identify punctures in future. Thanks.

Mudguard has sort of advantages as well as disadvantages. I don't know if I should put one on my bike or not. Because the real problem appears on real mud. Mud is transported from ground by tire to mudguard and too small gap between mudguard and tire cause that mud stay between them making additional resistance.

The tire is quite old. I wonder if it is better to replace it with a new one. I can see the rust on it.

The bubbles always give it away. I always hate fixing a flat tire.
