Where can I get tube patches in bulk?(8 posts)

Where can I get tube patches in bulk?Breakfast

I am looking for Rema's or good quality patches for home supply. Not interested in kits (patches, sandpaper, cement in tiny tube, etc.)

So far, I can't find a source on internet.

Help!

www.biketoolsetc.com

a box of 100 Rema 1" patches is $14.75

This place is amazing. Odd tools, tiny obscure parts, bulk items like patches, bearings, cables, etc.

personally I find buying tubes in bulk is a better deal. If I buy 20 tubes or more, I spend around 2.5-3 bux per tube. It takes me 30inutes to patch a tube (including digging the right tools out of my junk box, clearing the stuff after the patch job, etc.) and that means 1 hour's labor only saves $4-5 for me.
REI sells 'em over the counter.cory

At least our local REI does. I asked at the bike shop the other day and the guy told me "We have glue. People run out of glue before they run out of patches."
How do you use a whole tube of glue on, what is it, five or six patches?

As I found out one ride in the middle of nowhere, with plenty of patches and a tube of dried rubber cement.

You can use you old tubes and cut it and use it as a patch.
