- Preglued patches to die for?
yes yes, tubeless this, tubeless that. save it.
So, what pre-glued patches are people using for puncturage scenarios? I used to swear by Park, but then got onto Red Devils which seemed better. I’ve since discovered they’re too stiff and not flexible enough so come off when tube is rolled up or when applied along a seam on the tube. Vis a vis, they’re shit.
On that basis, thinking of reverting to Park. are there any better that people have found?Posted 7 years ago
don’t be sorry, they’re what i’m reverting to in the absence of anything better. i’m actually thinking of going back to old school glue and rubber for home repairs and only taking the preglued ones out on rides. i don’t reckon the preglued type bond as well for permanent solutions. any thoughts on the matter most welcome.Posted 7 years ago
I always found Skabs to be the longest lasting (and stickier than Park IME)Posted 7 years ago
Park are OK, but I’ve found that blisters often form over the puncture hole which then spread & eventually leak. Good ol’ fashioned glue & patches work much better IMO but are a pain to use out on the trail.
I now just use the Park patches for trail side repairs & glue & patches for when I can get home to do the job properly.Posted 7 years ago
that’s exactly what i’m finding, hpd. ernie, you’re probably right that it should be the rule, and i’m now reaching that conclusion myself. i feel it’s the approach i will take from now on.
so, what glue and patches are we all using when ensconced in our warm abodes? 🙂Posted 7 years agorocketmanMemberPosted 7 years ago
please confirm if we’re talking about lezyne classic or modern incarnations?brakesMember
my interest is piqued, or topeaked if you will
I’ve only ever used the Park ones. I’ve got a shed-load of inner tubes which need fixing and it would be nice if you could buy like an A4/A5 sheet of patches – hopefully it might save a bit of money compared to the patch kits.Posted 7 years agoteamhurtmoreMember
Having insulted the puncture fairy recently, I have been forced into comparing different alternatives. I switched from the old -fashioned patches shown above to Park patches for convenience and have been impressed with Park’s durability. (I hope I havent spoken too soon). Current back wheel has three Park Patches on and is going fine.Posted 7 years ago
The Topeak efforts are available for under £2 at a few places. Will give the Lezynes, as generously to be proffered by Dez, a go and see how they fare. In future I may dip a toe or even waggle a foot in the Topeak waters.
At my manor, a comfortable stock of TipTops is going to be tiptop of my to-do list.
Thanks for coming, as always, everybody.Posted 7 years ago
