Punctures can be luck of the draw - I went for a few months without any then got 4 in a week - wet conditions don't help.Laurent wrote:MTB is 26"Apposite wrote:Cheers for all the info lads.
I reckon I need:
Front mudguard. MTB one for rear will go on seatpost.
A decent pump with gauge.
Tool for removing wheels (got QR replaced with security bolts).
I need to re-familiarise myself with a calculator and pi and I reckon I can get the speedo semiaccurate.
I have bog standard regular tyres on it, 25mm road ones. Didn't recognise the brand. They are new enough. I think I will wait and see if I get punctures. If they last me the summer great, I'll get something grippier and more bulletproof before August, don't mind if they slow me down a bit. What's a good price for a set of Gatorskins?
road is 700mm these are basic settings you should be able to set on the cateye
surprised you guys get so many punctures
I had 1 in over a year and it was from being lazy and not pumping the tyre when I noticed it was a bit soft...
basic tyres on my bike.
New tyres are pretty expensive at the moment - Gatorskins on Wiggle are £26 but others are nearer the £40 mark.
