Wrap the tape completely around the tube. Put the tube back in the tire and the tire back on the rim. Any bike shop has them and, yes, patching tubes is certainly worth while. Done properly the repaired tube is as good as new.
How do you fix a puncture on a bike without a repair kit?
Fix the puncture Use a small piece of sandpaper to lightly rub around the puncture to provide a better surface for the rubber solution. Apply the glue to the tube – enough to cover the size of the patch. Leave the solution for a minute or two to get tacky – if you add the patch too soon, the repair won’t hold.
