    Post Anyone use this?

    Just thought I would ask if anyone has this insurance or thinks its value. I'm 50/50 at the mo.

    Read the fine print very closely Tony, it often does not cover what you think it might.

    Also read the maximum value you can have for all claims in a year, it is usually pretty low.

    It really gets down to how often you break rims and how, again often scraping them on a gutter is not covered.

    But if you read it all careful and think it is of value go for it

    I could be wrong .... yeah I often am, ..... but doesn't your comp insurance cover for debris/pothole/kerb damage ?? there is also some restitution to be gained from whoever is supposed to be maintaining the roads for pothole damage ... have had a mate make successful claim on a council for damage to his car rims from a pothole whack ..

    Guess the question is .. howmuchisit ?? Maybe for $50 per year it would be cheap piece of mind for punctures.

    I had tyre cover on a car many years ago, got a free puncture repair out of it .. wasn't great value in that respect.

    Two punctures and one dented rim (pinching the tube as well for a third flat) in nearly thirty years. I wouldn't bother.
    But you may well ride in higher risk areas than I and push your tyres harder.

    The first thing to remember about insurance is they make a profit. If you can afford to self-fund, that is usually the best way to go.

    I remember a thread last year (i think it was last year) where a guy had got a puncture that could not be repaired about a week after purchasing a new tyre. The tyre and rim insurance thing was thrown up then.

    it may be worth it if you were a commuter and often split lanes ect as you often pick up nails, screws rocks etc.
