Title: Rema tiptop puncture repair kits
Post by: bludger on April 15, 2019, 12:31:01 pm
In my most recent tour (which included Paris Roubaix) I had so many flats I had to fix the tubes I'd brought; I actually brought a cheapo halfrauds repair kit with me, but also my Rema kit which I'd used to actually patch a tyre.

I had one particularly huge snakebite flat which the cheap stuff just wouldn't seal up on. An enterprising Belgian guy doing mechanic services at a stop tried to sell me an inner tube for ten euros when I asked for some help. Fortunately I recalled I had the Rema tubeless repair kit with me in the frame bag and used the fluid from that instead, which was terrific, sealed the holes up beautifully with just a few minutes' faff. I'll be taking it with me wherever I go on long rides now.

It's a shame they come with 5 patches only as I reckon the fluid is more than adequate for twice that many.

You can buy the patches separately.

Oh terrific cheers. Looks like the blue ones in the kit are available too.
