Kit necessity
by Anonymous

I always carry a boot patch in my kit for every bike. Yes, a dollar bill can work in a pinch, but if you are out on some gravel it's nice to have the strength of the Park patch to get you home in case of a punctured sidewall.

Have not had to use one yet, came from sew-up background. Though we can use dollar bills or empty gel packages or other expedient items to accomplish a similar task, I feel more comfortable with using these. The adhesive will help to ensure that the item will stay in place while fumbling with remounting tires and tubes. When pressed for time to get back on the road this can be a real help, especially in inclement weather. I feel comfortable on long rides without hauling a spare tire along when I have a few of these on hand. They are much lighter and more compact than carrying a spare tire. They are not prohibitively expensive so I feel they are a good value item to take on rides.

Used to ride without these until I wrecked a tire and my wife had to come pick me up. Yikes- never again!

Super-compact alternative to a spare tire
by Anonymous

When it counts but space is at a premium, that spare tire is taking a lot of space. Enter the boot. The tire failures that a boot or two can't fix are quite rare. What's more, that tire fail could still happen a second time before you get to your destination. Think it over. Carry a spare tire if you want, but carry a boot or two also.

When a member of my bicycle club got a sidewall tear, another member stepped up with the Park Tool Boot.

It worked great and I thought no more dollar bills, tube pieces, or tree leaves. After this episode quite a few of us ordered the Park Tire Boot. Knowing I have three of them on every ride brings a high level of security.

No dislikes here.

I carried around a 20th century tire boot for years, and when I finally had a chance to use it, it failed. Luckily another rider had one of these and it worked. Now I have 3 new ones that should last me the rest of my life.

I've carried these for a long time, fortunately I've only needed them a few times. They work well to fix ripped sidewalls, large tread punctures, etc.

Best tire boot ever

I tore a 1/2" whole in the center of a Maxxis Aspen Exception tire trying to bomb a technical descent. Wiped the sealant off as best I could, put a tube in and blew it up. Got me home with out incident. When I took the tire off the next day the patch was permanently attached to the tire so I pulled the tube out and put new sealant in and have ridden it over five times with out any problem!

I split my one month old tire. I had recently split a older tire and bought these boots as insurance. I installed the boot a new tube and rode 10 miles back home. I'll always carry these boots from now on.

This is an excellent tool to have! I picked up a screw in my tire that had gone all the into the tube. I use this to patch the tire wall and it has worked great. I have the patch on now for over a hundred miles and the tire shows no sign of blow out or bumpy ride. I highly recommend this tool!

I had a 2-3 inch gash after riding over broken ceramic, 30 miles from home. This boot saved me from calling for a lift.

See above. You may need one in an emergency and the Park ones are definitely trustworthy and easy to carry. Try using a dollar bill or something, if you have one, but these are most likely, more reliable and more durable. Ride home rather than walk or..........have to make the call. Best of luck in your rides!

My husband use this product regularly because of road debris. He rides 6,000 miles per year and his tires do get cut more than mine. So he is very happy to have this tire boot available to him.

Put these in your saddlebag

I got these in case I got a gash in a tire. You can use pieces of Tyvek (FedEx bags), dollar bills, or empty gel packets, but the advantage of these is that they are adhesive, so they stay where you put them. My first use was when I picked up a 1 screw that went through the rear tire and into the inside of the rim. I used scissors on a tiny Swiss Army knife to cut a piece of the boot to stick into the groove of the rim. The boot is thick enough to protect the tube from any bits of metal sticking up around the hole in the rim tape, and I got home no problem. The wheel is probably OK to use on the road, but just to be safe I'll use it on my trainer from now on. Glad I had these with me!

Flat pack requirement

These are great to have in your flat back but also they're good for an expensive tire that has Low miles and a compromise in the puncture protection.

Instead of throwing away a $45 tire you can use one of these and get more mileage out of it.

I was on my touring bike w Conti 37mm TourRide. I went over some railroad tracks and the rear tire literally popped like a balloon. There was a big horizontal gash about an inch long on the bottom as well as the sidewall. After exhausting all the expletives in my vocabulary, I realized I had the Park Tool TB-2 Emergency Tire Boot in the deep recess of my saddle bag. I blessed it w a kiss and popped it into the tire. It worked like a charm. Yeah, I heard you can go MacGyver and use a dollar bill or PowerBar wrapper but why not spend a few bucks and have the proper tool at hand. I immediately ordered another one.

After years of depending on a dollar bill to boot my tires, I finally had a situation where the $ didn't hold. In fact it was doubled and still failed.

So I guess the dollar isn't worth what it once was!

I bought some of these again to carry with me. Why not!!! They are inexpensive and work.

Park says these are emergency only patches. I have used one for over a 1000 miles on a front tire and it is still holding well. One trick is to trim the patch so that it goes from bead to bead, the entire width of the tire. Also, clean the tire well with alcohol.
