Being that you can get a tube for the price of a patch kit, it might not be worth it to go too many. I would have no problem patching a tube 3 or 4 times, as long as the tube was still relatively new. If its a year old though, I'd just replace the tube. I've had 3 on one before after a ride on a thorn filled trail, and it worked just fine.Jared said:I had a good wipeout in a shale pile yesterday due to flats. Had three pinch flats (6 holes) on the front and a puncture on the rear. Used all my patches on 1 wreck!
How many patches have you put on one tube before replacing?
