Important topic here…any good tips on repairing holes in lycra? I’ve now worn holes in two sets of older bibs that I use for indoor training in the cave (wife won’t let me wear them outside!). Other than the hole, they’re still great bibs, so I’d like to figure out how to extend their lives a little bit. What with daughter’s college tuition payments about to kick off, dad’s cycling clothing budget is likely zero for the near future.
I tried some high-speed gortex patches from REI that are supposed to be great for “technical fabrics”, and I’ve had great success with them in the past, but between saddle friction and washing I only got a month out of them before they were coming off.
