How do you fix a hole in a bike tire?
A puncture hole is an inconvenience, but fortunately, it’s easy to fix with the right tools and tricks. First, remove the tire and locate the hole in the tube. Use a patch kit to glue a patch onto the hole. Inflate the tube to check your work, then reattach the tire to the wheel.
Can duct tape fix a hole in a bike tire?
Cut a three-inch piece of electrical or duct tape. Believe it or not, materials contained in patch kits often aren’t as effective as good-quality tape. Place the piece of tape over the hole, making certain the hole is in the center of the strip. Wrap the tape completely around the tube.
Can you patch a bike tire with hot glue?
Put a tiny drop of glue right on over the hole. Then press up really hard with you fingers from under the tube so the rubber where the hole is stretches. That causes the hole to become larger and sucks glue into the hole. This really works.
How long does it take for a bike tire patch to dry?
Place a patch centred over the puncture. Smooth out and make sure there are no air bubbles. Leave to dry for about 10 minutes.

What glue is used in a puncture repair kit?
