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?
