Do you patch tubes?
Of course I did, back in the day, when I was a student, and lived on my teaching assistant stipend...and then after that, I had a grown up job, and I didn't have any flat tires for several decades, except on my car, but that's different.
So now, I'm riding again, mostly on the tandem, and the tandem captain switches out the tube when there's a flat. So I always say, because I believe it, that I will patch those tubes, someday...but the collection keeps growing.
I ALWAYS patched tubes, sometimes I even patched them without taking them all the way off the wheel...
and they were FINE...
So, should I get patching?
And, are there better patch kits than there were back in 19-mumbling-erother?
What do you do?
