Tire patch kits and waste
Vulcanizing patch kits all seem to come with the some combination of a few small circular patches, a few larger circular patches and a few large rectangular patches.
Is there a place to purchase a vulcanizing tire patch kit that doesn't have the useless, larger size patches in it?
So far, I haven't had a hole larger than a 1-2 mm slit, so all I need are the small round ones. I end up cutting down the larger ones to use them, but it would make my life much easier, if I could skip that step.
I have to think that bike shops can get them in bulk, at whatever size they wish, (do they even patch tires at bike shops anymore or do they just change out tubes?)
