    I've got one, but my new bike has tubed tyres... so I get to buy a whole bunch of OTHER shit to carry around with me.

    I haven't read the whole thread but thought that I'd put in my 2 cents anyway. You'd have to be an idiot not to take when when on tour (and may as well have one at all times anyway).

    On the weekend on East Cape we had 2 punctures (2 different bikes). Both were easily fixed and got us safely all the way back to Palmy. I'm considering getting a little portable compressor too as you seem to only get so much pressure in the tyre from the little bottles.

    What's the best kit for me to buy now that I no longer have a tubeless rear? The front is still tubeless

    Was easier for the lads to throw a tube in than repair all the hole!!

    REPCO and Supercheap Autos also have kit for tubeless repairs.

    Was heading back to Wanganui from Raetihi on sunday and got a flat 35km's out.Nearly shit myself until i realised what had happened but anyway pulled over to the road side and saw a self tapping screw in the front tyre.Had a Genuine Innovations co2 kit under the seat kindly left there by Hitcher and was back on the road in ten minutes.Absolutely brilliant piece of gear.Got the tyre inflated to around 35psi which got me back to Wanganui and pumped it to required pressure.If you run tubeless you got to have one of these kits under the seat period.

    Thanks for the tread Danderous
    Was this what you used the other weekend at your place? I saw one which I think is the same at the HD place. It was 75 bucks. Is that about right or should I be able to get one cheaper elsewhere??

    Can't beat a little handpump....cheap, easy and limitless supply of air
    Opinions are like arseholes: Everybody has got one, but that doesn't mean you got to air it in public all the time....

    Last time I looked you can get them from $35 up, IIRC $45 for a decent unit. I quite rate the through away Metzler kit.
    cheers DD

    Great, thanks for that. I thought 75 seemed a bit pricey.

    I paid $70 for mine, but it came with a hand pump as well.
    There is some around that are cheaper like D said, but had less in them. $100 is cheap if you're in the middle of nowhere with a flat. I know what you mean, where do you stop. I got mine from Don at Cycletreads

    Same kit I've got - handy alright.

    Would involve physical activity...

    Used Meanie's compressor plugged into my Connie on the Southern cross to pump up Koroj's tyres a whisker - quick and easy...

    I reckon mine was about 30+ but not more than 35psi (front tyre and used two bottles).O'h....and one other thing. When you replace your Co2 bottles shop around.i just paid 14 bucks each for mine and then i see them somewhere else for 10 bucks 50 for 2.What a bastard

    Any possible way to mend punctured tubed tyre on side of the road?


    If you can make it on Kiwibiker you can make it anywhere.
