Genuine Innovations Tire Repair And Inflation Wallet

17 Jun

One of my least favorite tasks associated with cycling is changing a bicycle tire. I don’t mind changing a tire in my garage where I have access a bicycle repair stand and an air compressor, but I’ve never been fortunate enough to have a flat in my garage. In fact, I’ve never had a flat within 15 miles of home. As a result, every time I go for a ride I take a Genuine Innovations Tire Repair Wallet with me.

Genuine Innovations has manufactured bicycle tire repair and CO2 inflation products for over 20 years. I own four Genuine Innovations Tire Repair Wallets (one for each bike). While these wallets will easily fit inside of a jersey pocket, I keep mine in a small seat bag along with a spare tube and a Topeak Mini 9 Pro Multitool.

Inside the water-resistant nylon wallet you will find a compact CO2 inflator (works on both Presta and Schrader valves), two 16 gram threaded cartridges, tire patch kit, and two tire levers. One 16 gram CO2 cartridge will inflate a 700x23c road tire to 130 psi, or a 26×1.95″ MTB tire to 40 psi.

While this tire repair kit is very easy to use, I would suggest you try it out at home first. If you don’t have a spare tube to practice on, just ask your local bike shop if they have an old tube you can have (they probably have a dozen of them in trash can at any given moment). Spare CO2 cartridges are only a few bucks each and the experience gained from repairing a tire in your garage can save you from a lot of aggravation on the side of the road.

The Genuine Innovations Tire Repair Wallet retails for $25. I purchased mine online from Bike Nashbar for $20.
