    Patching bunny boots
    I was on a long ride yesterday and my right foot was really cold, felt like it was freezing up. Anyways, I looked when I got home and there is a small hole in the side of my bunny boot. There must be some moisture in there that is freezing up.

    So, I have two questions:

    1. How do I dry out the lining? Just leave it in front of the heater for a few days?

    2. How should I patch it? I was thinking about just using a bicycle patch kit if it would work.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    That is the big prob with bunny boots, if moisture gets into the air reservoir they will not keep you warm. I had to toss out a pair because I could never find the hole. In my case the air valve was open and moisture got in and I could never get the right one dry again. Be careful in front of the heater, but aqua seal should work fine or a combo of aqua seal and those adhesive tire patches. just wait as long as you can before patching - can you blow some air into the hole?
