They look unnecessarily complex and expensive. Just get a cheap plug kit from any motor factors.

The only advantage to them might be that they're more fool proof.

Looks quite similar to the Stop and Go puncture repair kit I've used before. Brilliant bit of kit and much better than fucking around with liquorice strips and glue by the side of the road.

I've lost my SAG kit so might give this one a go, seems pretty straightforward to use, my only concern is the diameter of the plugs themselves appear to be a bit skinny so if you get anything bigger than a small nail you could be in trouble.

Down side to this is that it'll probably be more difficult to find supplies when you run out of the spike thingys.....

If you go for the conventional plug kit, you can find the plug strips pretty much everywhere.

My 2 cents

I got a DynoPlug kit, I find it great, much less hassle than the conventional type of roadside puncture kit.
Bought it for the bike but only used it on the cage so far, twice.

What about the can of foam spray stuff which car drivers use ?

Can it be used on bikes to get you home ?

|Does it leave a mess inside the rim , is it worth the effort ?

Avoid if at all possible, I used this years and years ago and when I went to get the tyre changed the foam fucking exploded all over the place when taking the wheel off the tyre.

I was cleaning the guys workshop for an hour picking bits off the wall.

I've been commuting on a plugged rear tyre for a few months now. Must get the finger out and get some new ones. Kit looks good but looks expensive as fuck for a bit of plastic

they get very unreliable as the tire wears I found. 50% of my plugs fail after a couple of 1000 miles.

I think they are great, but not really as reliable as getting it fixed with mushroooms.
