Just patched a tube with 2 patches an hour ago. When I saw "Park" and "Patch", I was hoping it was the glueless kind. I've tried store brand knock offs from Performance and was disappointed, going back to trusty vulcanized ones. They just are time consuming.
I get flats a lot in the desert here and if I didn't patch, the cost of tubes and bike tires would be higher than the cost of gas, for the mileage I put out. Tried to convert to tubeless + sealant, but that just has too many issues and risks and you still have to carry a spare tube.
Interested in high end mountain bike-related deals.
Bought 48 patches + bond from ebay for $2. Used it 35 times in the past 1.5 years for 8 different family bikes. The average tube costs around $5.
Do the math and realize why your on SlickDeals.
Yes I carry extra tubes for myself and and my 2 boys but not for other family members or friends that decide to ride with us. When they get flats my handy dandy patch kit keeps us mobile. If my 2 boys or I get a flat I change the tube since its faster and repair the other tube at home then put it back in my bag for next time.
Now do you get the point?
lol dude, don't take yourself so seriously. it was an honest question. and now that I've gotten a couple responses, I now appreciate the utility of tire patches, and picked up a couple through the EMS link ($1.50 shipped). thanks, and remember to stay chill!
