    Hi there all,
    I've recently had the dreaded puncture (luckily, spotted it before getting on the bike on sat) and I ordered this on amazon and an oxford 2 canister air kit.
    Bloody brilliant. Worked a treat and it's certified to be a permanent repair too.
    I would’ve changed the tyre BUT it's loads of life left and it was in the middle (ish).
    Well recommend chaps.

    I've done thousands of miles on plugged tyres, and even a burnout towards the end of ones life to test the plug. No problems at all :)

    I have been carrying one of those on longer journeys with air canisters for a few years now, good to know they work.

    I've had the sticky string variety for years. It's the cheapest and also one of the best. Coupled with a mini compressor it can save your ar5e in the middle of nowhere, providing of course you have tubeless tyres. The main drawback with the co2 cannisters is they can't inflate your tyre to the correct psi as they don't contain enough air so you then have to limp to a petrol station to inflate it to the correct pressure plus if you have difficulty sealing the plug or connecting the cylinder you can quickly run out of co2 leaving you stranded.

    Interesting. I have a usual repair kit. I'll look at that one and try to balance how better it is. I may end buying one, and hope I'll never use it :)

    In the past I had a puncture an a former bike. I could have done without this experience! o_O
    Therefore I am now carrying a repair kit with 3 air cardridges and some other small tools on my daily rides with me. When riding long tours I add a tool set with common parts too.

    North Kent.
    would you need 50 co2 canisters fill a rear? would a mini compressor be better?

    I've seen these kind of very portable compressor. Could be a good invert (30 bucks) to travel.

    Now that looks a VERY good idea.
    Pumps motorbike tyres 6 times on one charge apparently.
    1031 reviews on amazon too so worth a go!?
    Thanks for posting!

    very interesting. most of my stuff uses tubes, and so i have always carried short tire irons and an inner tube patch kit. the patches and cement degrade over time, so i buy new periodically. when i travel longer distances i've always carried a short bicycle pump to re-inflate a tire. standard equipment in the old days

    similar solutions are still available in smaller sizes and probably better quality

    Does it leave the brass tip in the tyre?

    I bought this one a few years back, never had to use it in anger yet.

    Yep, it does.
    But it's kind of glued in place by the sticky rubber bit. It's not going anywhere!

    It dosnt matter how many canisters you pump into the tyre, they will still only get you to around 20psi. Good enough to get you to a garage.

    With my luck the battery would be flat when I needed it most!

    that's why the low-tech solutions continue to be viable. three minutes cursing a hand pump are better than an hour out and another back spent hitchhiking to a service station with a compressor, carrying your wheel

    When I'm touring I carry stop&go with a mini compressor. It all fits nicely in the kriega 5ltr pack.

    My battery operated compressor that is similar to @Hubaxe’s post #8 also comes with a 12v plug to power it from the bike/cars charge/lighter socket.

    Helpful should the internal battery ever be flat.
