How do you get around this annoying problem? I'm sure someone out there has a simple solution. Answers asap please before I go to Holland on Thursday.

New inner tubes are only a couple of quids for the Penrose type barrows.

Go to your local wilkinsons store if you have one, and get some 'doctor sludge' it protects inner tubes from punctures from the cycle section.

the best thing is go to halfords and buy a can of tyre fix its like a foam witch inflaties your tyre and goes hard also sealing the punture.

You can just buy a new tube for it....Halfords do a wonderful range of sizes(you'll be surpirsed), and I got some for the little ones pushchair the other day that were pretty close to being the right size for my trolly....I must admit I didn't think that I'd find any that would fit, but sure enough they were stocked on the shelf.

Dave mate that foam breaks down within a couple of weeks, I don`t recommend it at all for fishing! Great for punctures on bikes though, will get you home from three mile away. I carry two on my bike. [:)] Think I`ll try Halfords, I`ve got a puncture too! Have to blow tyre up on way to and from canal!!! [:(!]

I brought going back a number of years a rubber/soft plastic inner tube protector. Its a flat flexible material that goes around the inside of the rubber tyre between the inner tyre wall and inner tube. Once fitted I have never had another puncture. Wonderful little bit of kit[;)]

This is almost the same thing I have fitted on my trolley tyres.

Hope this helps

Jon, thats the same problem I have. Its ok when I get there but after the session its flat. I,ve bought some stuff now for a quick fix and then when I get back i'll source a new tube.

Stu, I struggle to walk 100 yards with my stuff, I think I take too much. The box I have has brackets for the trolly handle built on to the box, if you carry it, it is bl''dy murder.

Ive used the tyre weld stuff in my trolley and barrow. Not had a problem with it yet!

If you go to Wilkinsons, they do it for half the price of Halfords!!

Punctured trolleys, fnar fnar!! Is this only a double meaning in Yorkshire, or are the rest of you too sensible & mature? [:D]

try your local kwikfit or any reasonable tyre shop, for a few quid 6 - 8 they should fit new tubes for you. I had the same problem but now no more flat tyres.

In West Yorkshire, I have bought them from a Company called Mototrend
in Gildersome Leeds. Tel 01924 479013. Just quote them the tyre size.
