    Fellas - is there such thing as a one time use tire cement deals?

    The little tube that comes with my patch kit seems to be only good for one use. After I fix a flat, the cement eventually dries out in the tube and becomes useless. I have a large tube of cement at home but not sure if I can transfer a small amount of it into another container or if that's even viable. So, I figured on looking for a single use cement for fixing a flat while on a ride.

    I'm open to other ideas.

    Some time back I had seen and used glue that came in little bulbs, not much bigger than a pencil eraser. Tear off the nipple and squeeze out glue. No idea where you can find them though.

    Rema/tip-top makes GREAT patches/adhesive etc. My goto brand for tube/tyre repairs on my patrol is oz.

    The small 5g tubes last a long time when not opened - versus the bigger cans etc that dry up after a few years.

    cheers,
    george.
