Patching inner tube in spoke well
Can anyone tell me if it is safe to patch the area of an inner tube that is not pressing against the tyre but is over the recess in the middle of the rim that the spoke heads sit in?
I have managed to pinch my inner tube in this area with a tyre lever and am concerned about the reliability of using a patch where it is not pressed against anything. Ideally I would just replace this tube but I am in Mexico and can so far only find unknown brand, made in Tailand tubes and wonder whether a patched 'Continental' tube would be more reliable spare.
Thanks for your thoughts
