I will never buy this patch kit again

About Me Commuter

Comments about Bell® Bike Tube Repair Kit (7015910):

I picked up the Bell Patch-it Bicycle Tube Repair Kit 1002486 (at a mass merchandiser) after using similar patch kits to patch my tubes for a number of years. It sounds great. Just roughen the tube with the metal buffer, apply the glue and one of the patches, pump up your tube and off you go.

What I found however, was that I had consistent problems with the patches failing. Where a tube patched with another patch was generally reliable and only failed if I did not diligently follow the instructions, the tube I attempted to patch with the Bell patches would not hold air. It'd leak. Immediately -- and fast enough that the tire remained unrideable. Or slowly -- enough to get you where you needed to go, but you'd have to reinflate the tire again to get back home.

Especially problematic were spots where the patch goes over a seam. That was a sure failure as the adhesive on the patch wasn't strong enough to draw it down to the tube on either side of the seam. Why aren't the patches smoothe on the application side?

I don't mind much fixing flats, but I only want to do it once if I have to. So stay away from this kit. The patches that Bell uses in this kit make patching flats an exercise in frustration.

Best Uses

    Comments about Bell® Bike Tube Repair Kit (7015910):

    unlike "glueless" patches these actually stick indefinitely to properly prepared surfaces. also they can be cut to size; i've used as small as 1/4" squares for multiple thorn punctures, therefore a good value. you can also do emergency patch-on-patch repair for larger holes that eventually widen to the edge of the existing patch. others usually won't stick to their outer surfaces; these will. i'd recommend carrying sandpaper; the metal "buffer" is too coarse, can damage / weaken tube surface.
