Hey, ya'll - I'm looking to repair a few rips in an older nylon cover I got it from my bike's previous owner. One rip is about seven inches long, clean tear. The others are only a few inches. Right now they are tied shut from within with rubber bands.

Any insights into a better repair?

PS I know buying a new cover is an option (and expect to do so at some point down the line), but I'd rather opt to learn some tricks to try them out on this one, then any other future covers. Trying to go the fix before replace philosophy here.

If you can find a boat store in your area, go get some 'Sail Tape'. Maybe buy it online. It's designed to withstand almost anything nature can throw at it. Wind, rain, hot, cold, it holds. Put it on both sides of you cover and forget about it. It will last longer than the cover.

Awesome, many thanks! I'll give this a shot this week.
