A flat tire doesn't have to spell the end of your ride. The Park Tool VP-1 comes with everything you need to repair a punctured inner tube and get it ready for reinstallation and inflation. Together with the included vulcanizing fluid, the butyl patches create a molecular bond with the inner tube, resulting in a durable permanent repair for any puncture. The application process is easy: simply spread a thin layer of vulcanizing fluid over the area, allow it to dry, remove the backing from the patch, firmly apply pressure (especially at the edges), and inspect the bond after a minute or two. Compatible with nearly all bicycle inner tubes. With everything contained in a small box, the VP-1 is an ideal size to tuck into a saddle bag or jersey pocket.
Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.
Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
