Great way to get home! Very nice hack. TB

If you had put the zip ties just around the tyre and tube instead of the rim, you would have been able to keep your rear brake active.

Another handy option to have is Tyvex (Fedex/UPS envelope that looks like fiber) or a dollar bill wrapped around the tube inside the tyre to stop it from swelling.

ACE have started the year off with their annual touring tyre test, covering 15 tyres in the popular 205/55 R16 size. The test covers a wide range of tyres, including a yet unreleased tyre and a number of budget options.
