Baking Soda - NOT Baking Powder Quite simply, mixing a drop of superglue with a small quantity of baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) creates a virtually instant rock-hard material that can be drilled, shaped, filed, or sanded, to repair almost anything! At end of June, I was about to ride down to Madrid and spend a couple of days in the Picos on the way back. I'd been having a few problems with the bike and had spent a couple of weeks continually putting the tank on and then having to take it off. On one of those removals, I managed to shear off a fuel feed spigot at the base of the fuel pump. There was no time to find a replacement, so I thought about taking a different bike but that would then need to be prepped. However, before descending into a deep funk, dredging the dark recesses of long forgotten knowledge, the superglue/bicarb soda fix surfaced from some dark corner. I glued the spigot together and built up the repair with the magic material. I have to confess to being a bit nervous about a 2,000 mile trip trusting the repair with petrol acting as a solvent, especially with 10% ethanol (everywhere in Spain) and vibration, so I went belt and braces with some o/d 5mm brass tube to (interference fit) sleeve the spigot internally. I swaged the end and sliced the tube so as to ensure the flow couldn't be restricted. The repair held and is still in place, so I'm happy to leave well alone. This morning, my glasses broke, the hinge mount disintegrated. Superglue and baking soda to the rescue! Cheap, available virtually anywhere and totally effective! Like superglue, the repair is just about instant, so no need to wait for curing times etc. A good thing to have in the toolkit when touring and miles from home! Loads of YouTube clips to see for guidance - I would encourage anyone to try it, rather than find yourself stranded, or throwing otherwise 'irreparable' stuff away..! I've also found that the really cheap superglue works just as well Loctite or other pricey alternatives.
