Speak to Stuie. He always carries a kit with him it has got us out of trouble on a couple of occasions. As well as getting Floyd down to Quattford n home again a few weeks ago! Tis a magical thing methinks😉👍

There are various kits around, I have an Oxford kit, with plugs and CO2 cannisters to pump up the tyre, I also have another kit not sure of the name but it is basically the same as the Oxford, its in a small case, so it stores under the seat.
They are relatively cheap, around £30, but worth their weight in gold at times.

And you are right Lindz, Tis a magical thing, lol

I carry an air compressor. Most punctures are slow so pump it up do a few miles etc..not great but it will get you home ride steady etc..Aldi are selling a small example for £4.99 which fits in my tank bag side pocket and is always there. Useful when you don't have a puncture too..

Stop&go repair kit. These are the mushroom type and cannot come out of the tyre unlike the string ones. I repaired a 1day old tyre with one and 8000 mls later it still seals the hole.

A small self-tapping screw. It worked for 10,000 miles on my car. :-)

I use the stop and go kit. And carry a small compressor. I find the air man compressor reliable.

Used it more times than I care to remember during my 20 odd years as a courier. Also used on my 4x4's when I was competing with the off road stuff.

If it's a tubeless tyre that has tread no thicker than an inch it's a great piece of kit as long as the hole is no bigger than 5mm.
