Have been riding road bikes seriously for 41 years. Rema vulcanized patches were my preferred choice before the Park Super Patch came along, have used them exclusively for decades. On road tubes and my olddddd beater commuter mtn bike will replace tubes after patched three times. My rule is to always carry a tube that has ï¿½not beenï¿½ patched as a spare. Patch a flatted tube and put it back on the bike(s) as soon as I am home. I can't remember the last time I woke up to a flat tire after patching it. Only issue I have had have been holes next to a seam and hit those seams harder with sand paper. The patches are so thin on the tube compared to vulcanized ones and just so much cleaner and easy to use. It's the one comical and fugal area of my cycling, figure thee patches is worth about $20+ in tubes (sorry BTD).
On a side note the one thing that has saved mine and fellow group riders in a BIG way is carrying a Park Emergency Tire Boot. Yes, know a dollar bill can work in a pinch, but have limped home with a major tire gash with their boot.
I'm eventually going tubeless, but until I do I will use these patches on my tubes. They're easy to install and sufficiently patch to extend the life of my tubes.
They may not be as durable as the vulcanized rubber with glue, but rare is it to have a puncture in the same place. My vote is for the Super Patch.
More often than not they seem to work. I have had a few give out over time or need to place a second over the edge of the first where it didnt seem to seal.
The small size cant be beat. They fit anywhere which is really nice when I can carry next to nothing on my bike.
Cannot beat the simplicity of these glue free patches on the road. I always have them with me and have zero failures with the patch. Nice to not be dealing with liquid glue; especially on a windy day!
Had been dealing with the typical patch/glue method and experiencing a hit or miss as far as effectiveness until a fellow cyclist recommended this Park Tool GP-2 Glueless Super Patch. Again, have no regrets as these are easy to use, no mess, no fuss, and sealed up a hole without difficulty. Would certainly recommended these as they are easy to put in the bike sack to have in a pinch.
I loved these patches till last week when for no apparent reason and no warning, one just let go over night. I came out to go to work and discovered I was going to be late. Again, the tire was perfect pressure coming home the evening before, I had no indication of failure. Mind you it held fine for a year or more, but I hate this kind of surprise. Back to patch and glue for me, can't be late to work.
I still prefer the old school patches. These seem to leak after some time. Been using glue patches for years. Ttryed these because of the positive reviews. They work ok. But stick with the old patch.
After trying four times in 100 degree heat to patch a buddy's tire with traditional patches, I decided never again. After switching to these my time off the bike repairing a flat has dropped, and my time in the saddle increased. What more could you ask for?
I haven't used glue patches in years. These work really well. I clean the tube and scruff it slightly w sandpaper given and place one side the smear it out well from the center to edges.. racing on a 6 mo old patch today
Punctures happen for those of us who still use tires with tubes. These patches work. They don't come undone after a few miles or a few days etc.. And, no more tubes of glue that don't have any glue in them! Bonus.
I always carry two extra tubes AND carry the Super Patch just in case. I know, call me paranoid but better safe than sorry. On a recent ride, this patch saved the day for a newbie rider who was stranded on the road with a flat and no tube. She'd have been riding for 6 months without a spare tube and of course her luck finally ran out. Just be sure to keep the area to be patched clean and scuff it up good and carefully apply the patch smoothly without any folds and burnish it down and it's good to go.
