Slime Skabs Peel N Stick Tube Patches
Slime Skabs Peel N Stick Tube Patches are pre-glued patches - just pick em and stick em!
These patch's work well for getting you back on the trail, but I have had problems with them coming loose after a few rides on them.
I like the other slime products but these aren't reliable. I've used the other patches numerous times and had the patch last forever but these seem to separate from the tube after a while. Also the scuffer is razor sharp and even using it lightly can create new holes in the tube.
Can't say enough about these little guys! First of all the kit is almost the same size as a silver dollar, and can fit in every pocket, bag, sock, or waist band with out problem. Second, these things work! Ive used the old fashion patch kits with rubber cement and all and in the same time it takes me to just afix the patch to a tube with the old kit, I can be back on the road and riding in the same amount of time using the SKABS. What"s easier than peel, stick, pump and ride?
I tried to use this to patch a BMX tube near the valve stem. It worked for a little bit but started to leak. The tube stretched too much at that spot. I've used them on other parts of the tube and it worked great.
Bought a set of these and found them REALLY great for a pinch flat when hitting your tire into something hard and the tire folds to the rim and pinches it. Combine with a set of SETTE tire levers from pricepoint, and I HIGHLY recommend some Walmart store brand KY Jelly in your pack with a little water from your water pack spread around your tire bead and your tire comes off the rim super slick and fast and after using the slime patch, goes right back on just as easy with your tire levers. Using KY jelly with a bit of water saves you having to re pinch the tire tube while putting the tire back on the rim in the field with your tire levers and saves you lots of cussing and screaming that the animals will not understand. Not great for long term but in the field to get you back out, works AWESOME! Eventually they will fail over time but will give you plenty of time to ride for weeks till you get time to order new inner tubes from price point and ship them to your house.
