Cheap, fast & under control: bike flat repair kit
Every cyclist should have a flat kit to enable them to deal with a flat tire.
Most kits include simple levers to get the tire off the rim and a set of patches for repairing holes.
The Lunar Levers combine these two needs into one.
The levers themselves are better designed than standard levers to help you remove and remount a tire.
Ingeniously, the levers store the patch kit inside inside the levers themselves, snapping together to form a single space-saving unit.

Gotta agree with Scott - the stickons just don't hold. Without the vulcanization fluid, the patches leak, allowing you a mile or two of emergency travel wich is usually not enough.
It's a cool concept - I would like to take the fumbly, brittle, box out of my seat bag and just have two levers.

Cute, but I wouldn't leave home with it (see the comments in Cool Tools). Self-stick patches just don't work (even from reputable outfits like Park Tool) and I always carry three tire levers (old-school heavy wire/Kevlar bead guy here).
