I bought this and is worth for long route travel.. overall experience with product is woth the value of money
Great value for money
Glue failed to set. Not sure if I got a duff batch but after trying three patches, none of them stuck to the inner tube. Normally the rubber compound glue bonds in seconds but not the glue in this kit. Not much fun trying to repair puncture at side of road with failing light.
Sorry to read that you had issues with you patches. We recommend you wait about a minute before putting patch on inner tube.
1. Find the puncture site on your inner tube
2. Rub the surface around the hole with the sandpaper provided
3. Remove any grease or dirt and wipe the surface dry
4. Spread glue evenly around the hole
5. Wait about 1 minute until the glue loses its shine
6. Centre the patch over the hole (without touching the glue and sticky side of the patch with your fingers) and press down firmly for at least 1 minute
7. DO NOT REMOVE THE CLEAR TAPE FROM THE PATCH

What can I say, it does what it does, it is what it is.
I much prefer these type of patches as they seem to seal better, though I have very rarely needed to use the larger patches.
Good all round, simple, easy and quick to use.
Simple and easy to use
Not enough smaller patches
I carry a puncture repair kit with me on rides but to be fair I always carry two spare tubes and if I do happen to get a dreaded flat I change the tube then when I get home I repair the puncture. I've bought several of the BTwin repair kits and they are very good and small enough to fit into your back Jersey pocket.
Not too expensive, small enough to fit back pocket
Non so far
NIce small package to tuck away in your saddle bag or pocket
Neat kit, small size
I bought a different kit for £1 in a big pound store after I got the B twin one. It had all the stuff this kit has plus a multi wrench (not great quality but hey ho), two inlet tubes, 3 Allen keys, two valve caps and chalk. The Btwin kit is very expensive for all that's in it, though it is handy to have 3 tyre levers instead of two especially when you're removing road tyres
3 tyre levers and lots of patches
No chalk/puncture marker
Thank you for your feedback regarding the price of this item.
We don't provide chalk because with this patch you don't need it as you can leave the clear film on the patch once stuck on to the inner-tube.
When I compare the price with Halfords, their basic kit costs £3.99 (they do give you a block of chalk and a bit of crayon) and have inferior patches.
I will however look in more detail as to some other competitors and the price may well change. We check our prices regularly and your feedback is much appreciated.
