Do puncture repair kits work bike?
Re: Do puncture repair kits actually work? They certainly work a lot better than those self-adhesive patches do. I consider it prudent to put the repaired tube in the wheel, so it can be proven to hold air, rather than packing it away as an untrustworthy spare.
Is it worth patching a bike tube?
Overall, patching is cheaper and better for the environment than replacing your tube, so I recommend it for most situations. However, there are some flats that cannot be patched. If the hole is near the valve stem or if it is a linear tear and not a hole, you will need to swap tubes.

What is a bicycle tire lever?
Tyre levers kind of do what they say on the tin. They are little levers that are used for getting tyres off a wheel. There will be a thin end that is designed to slide between the tyre and the rim of your wheel so that you can pop the tyre off.
