Park Tool Super Patch Kit
Advantages: quick and easy
Disadvantages: only 6 in a pack
Getting a puncture is a real pain especially if you are out cycling at the time! I'm not much of a bike expert but I do enjoy cycling and I know how frustrating a puncture can be. The last time I had one I had cycled to work and just before setting off home I noticed my flat tyre. Luckily I had bought a park tools super patch kit so I managed to repair the puncture and get on my way home.
This kit will set you back around £2.99 and you get size patches in the set.
==Description and how to use==
The kit comes in plastic box that is small enough to slip in your knapsack and contains a square of sandpaper and six puncture patches. When you find you have a puncture you need to remove your inner tube from the tyre and then locate the puncture. If you really struggle to see the hole, put the inner tube in a bucket of water and press on it, when you see the bubbles you know where the rupture is. Next you need to dry off the inner tube and then using the square of sandpaper rough up the area around the hole, this friction gives the puncture patch something to grip. Blow away the dust and then select a patch. Peel off the backing paper and push the sticky side of the patch against the hole, smooth it out and give it thirty seconds to dry. You can now pop it back in and blow it up.
==Quick and easy==
The puncture kit is so easy and quick to use. There is no mess and it works! As the patches are quite big you can use them for a variety of punctures and even small tears. I think they are worth the money, for 50p each you cannot go wrong. The patch is thin and strong so it mvoes with the tube but remians solidly stuck to it. You will always get a puncture along the way so it is always best to be prepared; having this little kit with you will make life so much easier. I will recommend it and I will be buying another one in future.
Summary: really useful kit
