I carry both, spare tube and self adhesive repair kit, just to be on the safe side
Wow, I'm defo going out unprepared then... I just take my phone, card, cash and inhaler.
Time to go shopping, again!
Last winter on a day when the temperature was around freezing, I hit a pothole at high speed and punctured both tubes. I carried one spare tube and glueless patches. I had tried the patches at home and they worked OK but I could not repair a snake bite with them .The best attempt lasted about a mile. This was on top of the pennines in a bitter cold wind, quiet road and no fellow cyclists to come to my aid. My fingers had stopped working by the time I used the last patch and I had to phone for help. I spent nearly an hour huddled behind a drystone wall wondering how long it took to die from hypothermia.
Needless to say I do not recommend glueless patches.
As a noobie to road riding I'm looking for advice on what to carry. Tubes or puncture kit?
