Lezyne Classic Patch Kits are simple, traditional, utilitarian patch kits with a case that holds rubber adhesive patches and a scuffer, plus patch kit instructions that have a self-adhesive backing to serve as an emergency tyre boot.
"The Lezyne Classic Puncture Repair Kit has proved hard to fault. No matter how good your tyres, maintenance or riding style, sooner or later, we all succumb to the dreaded hiss. Pisssssspharp! If there's no ruinous gash needing a new tube, this is a decent patch kit that will get you home.
Being a company that places great emphasis on design, Lezyne have solved the rattley box problem by squeezing a 7cc tube of vulcanising solution, stainless steel scuffer, eight feathered edge patches of various sizes with a contingency tyre boot that doubles up as repair instructions into a small, square plastic tub. Its arrival proved timely, since on the return leg of a stormy ride, I fell prey to two savage cuts caused by jagged particles of broken glass piercing both the casing of my tyre and thorn-resistant tube.
Giving the localised wounds a cursory scuffing, I pierced the tube of surprisingly pungent rubber solution, smeared it liberally over the affected areas and left curing for the recommended two minutes before compressing the patch for a minute or so. Turning my attentions to the carcass, it was a case of extracting deeply embedded shrapnel using a set of tweezers and filling the gash with the emergency boot before cursing myself, having left the Co2 inflator at home.
Tube reinstated and 550 strokes of the hand pump later, we were 80psi better off and bowling home. Ten miles later and in the comfort of my kitchen, I went on a tube-patching binge, successfully reviving two out of three featherweight types left languishing in a corner of the garage. In centrally heated environments, the solvent cures in around forty-five seconds and patches stuck fast in around two minutes, unfazed by tricky seams. I even managed to fix some holes right by the valve stem with the help of a clothes peg."
