What mushroom plug kit to buy, and from where?

  1. I had the pleasure of pulling this hairy monster out of my back tyre just before the Melbourne ride last night:


    I'm lucky, because its only just inside the area of the tyre that is normally considered safe for repair (25% of the tyre's width, measured from the centreline). For now, I've plugged it with a string, but I'd like to fix it with a proper internally installed mushroom plug because the tyre ought to have a lot of life left in it.

    Anyone have any suggestions as to where I can pick up a good quality mushroom plug kit that is designed to be installed from the inside and, preferably, also includes a patch to reinforce the repair? I can buy locally or order online - it's not hyper-urgent.

    Thanks for your suggestions!
