Tip of the Week

Tip 1:

Put some talcum powder in your tyres before fitting. Just get it from your wife/girlfriend/ mum [delete as applicable]. there's bound to be some in the bathroom.

It makes fitting and removing the tyre easier and also stops your inner tubes sticking to the tyres, which drags them round under braking and can rip the valves off.


Tip 2 Avoid cable rub
Tip 3 Check your cleats
Tip 4 Freshen up your camelbak
Tip 5 Bite your bars
Tip 6 Repair torn tyres

Tip 7 Keep your shades safe

Tip 8 Double Tube your tyres

Tip 9 Brush up on your cleaning

Tip 10 Stop squealing brakes
