Minimizing Flat Tires on Your Bicycle

2017-02-24 09:27:32 | 日記

Should you ride a bike you're eventually going to see a flat. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or experienced rider, road rider or mountain biker, it will happen. However, there are actually steps which you can take to minimize this from happening to you personally and ruining your outing or planned outing.

Proper Storage

The very first thing you'll want to do is make sure that your bike is stored properly. If possible, store bike stored inside and from the elements. Extreme cold and heat can wreak havoc on bicycle tires autel maxisys ms906. The expanding and contracting of the rubber will cause the makeup of the tire to breakdown rapidly. If storing your bike inside is simply not possible, consider removing the wheels from the bike and at least storing them inside to guard them from the elements.

Proper Tire Pressure

Properly inflating your tires is critical in all vehicles. Cars, trucks and even your bike. Should you be unsure on the proper tire pressure, take some time to check out the sidewall of the tires. A tire which may be over inflated would be more vunerable to punctures of even blowouts. This is when the tube in the tire gets in between the wheel and tire and ends in pinching, causing the aforementioned "pinch flat".

Visual Inspection

Before riding, make sure you have a quick look at the condition of your tires. Specifically search for cracks or visible defects in the tires, for instance chunks of rubber this is broken off, etc. Also, take a look where the rim and the tire meet around the sidewall. That's where tiny rocks or other debris tend to get wedged in between, causing a gap and loss in tire pressure.

Other Tips

Mainly for mountain bikers, consider the usage of a tire tube which is sometimes referred to as being "thorn resistant". Sure, the price is a little more, but would you rather pay more to keep riding or spend less and increase the probability of getting a flat caused by a thorn or other sharp vegetation?

Utilizing a product called "Slime" or equivalent. This product is injected into your tires via the valve stem autel maxisys pro ms908p, and is precisely what the name suggests. It's a slimy substance that resides in your tube intended to fill in small punctures when they happen, hopefully preventing a total flat while out on a ride. There are also tubes available that have this material inside the tube. I prefer purchasing a pre-filled tube, as to avoid the potential mess and hassle of filling the tube by yourself.

Yet another brand to make note of is, "Armadillo". This tire includes a reputation of being extra tough and very durable, resistant to alot of the elements that could cause other tires to get flat. However, the with all the durability comes a price. The Armadillo apparently rides a tiny bit rougher than other tires. Simply decide what's more important for your requirements, durability or ride comfort, if you find yourself receiving a flat often on your usual rides.

Hopefully, you have found these tips advantageous. With proper storage, maintenance, and preparation, you truly can minimize the frequency of flats. A good thing is, these preventative measure cost little if no money and can help you save alot of hassle over time. Happy riding!
