- 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 8 years ago
Sorry Park here, they just work well.Posted 8 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 8 years ago
Park here too. Never had a problem with them.Posted 8 years ago
I always found Skabs to be the longest lasting (and stickier than Park IME)Posted 8 years ago
the only issues i’ve had with the parks are later on on when they seem to wrinkle a bit and start leaking at the edges/coming off. perhaps i need to do a bit more sand papering prior to application/press harder!Posted 8 years ago

I thought that was the general rule anyway. Always been mine (after spare tube first obviously)Posted 8 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 8 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 8 years ago
Lezyne patches are fantastic.Posted 8 years ago
classic style or modern preglued style, schmiken?Posted 8 years ago
Park for tubes (when I’m running tubes) and Scabs to hold together a ripped tyre from the inside of the tyre carcass – they work suprisingly well for this if its not too big a ripPosted 8 years ago

good enough to forget the tube is patchedPosted 8 years ago
Topeak Flypaper. I’ve also used Park. Not had to repatch since using Topeak. This includes road bike pressures.
Oh and they aren’t bad on blisters either!Posted 8 years ago
ok, my interest is piqued, or topeaked if you will, by the lezyne and topeak recommendations. do tell me more, people. and please confirm if we’re talking about lezyne classic or modern incarnations?Posted 8 years ago
Topeak for me too. Bought on CRC cheap, used and VERY good, bought 4 more packs recently for Morzine trip for me and the lads.Posted 8 years ago
I’ve got some Lezynes that came with my backpack. Send me your address and I’ll post em to you. Bet they aren’t as good as Skabs though 😉Posted 8 years ago
wow, cheers dez. that would be amaze if you wouldn’t mind. i’ll pop you an eme now.Posted 8 years ago
Would you really die for puncture patches?
Park’s definitely peel under pressure, so I might opt into Lezyne too.Posted 8 years ago
Nothing else comes close!Posted 8 years ago
please confirm if we’re talking about lezyne classic or modern incarnations?
toby, i would.
zulu eleven, thanks.
rocketman, thanks.Posted 8 years ago

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 8 years ago

Checked the thread title lately? 🙄Posted 8 years ago
i recently bought some of these, yup 100 of them, i’m sure i’ll give some to my mates/ never have to worry about running out of them ever againPosted 8 years ago
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 8 years ago

things have moved on, organdonor. try to keep up. 🙄Posted 8 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 8 years ago
