I always carry one of these kits with me on rides. It's compact and serves as a backup to my spare tubes. The patches bond very well if the tube is properly prepared. The kit only comes with 6 patches - I wish it came with a few more. There is more glue than needed for just six patches, so I buy extra patches at my LBS and use them until the glue is gone. I buy a couple of these kits at a time when they are on sale, so they tend to be a pretty good value.
How many times have you struggled with patches that were too big for narrow road bike tubes? Sure they fit, but wouldn't you like something just a little smaller that fit flat on the flattened tube without some of the patch rolling over? These patches are the perfect size. They stick well and are nice and thin. Much better then the cheap kits offered by other online suppliers. Most other kits come with two sized patches. Too big and way too big. What to improve? Maybe include a few more patches. But compared to the multi-size patch kits, I will use all of these patches as they are the perfect size.
This kit has everything you need to patch a flat. I hate throwing a tube away because it has a flat. You can patch the tube and it will work as good as new. I inflate my tires to about 110psi and the patches have no problems with that pressure. Much cheaper than at the local bike shop.
Like most patches, the plastic top coating can be a bit of a hassle to peel off, but these are solid overall patches. I use these for all of our bicycles mountain, commuter, and road.
These patches tend to be smaller diameter than many of the name brand options which is great for road bike tubes making the patching process easier. Unlike the alternatives, these are about the width as a flat tube eliminating the need to wrap the patch around the tire. Prep, glue and stick down the patch. Haven't had any issues since I started using these.
I was tired of always having to be careful wrapping the edges of other larger patches around small road tubes. These patches are the perfect size. Stocked up on a bunch of them for a great price.
