General Discussion / Tire Inflation Pressures
« on: May 19, 2006, 10:47:23 am »
In the days before tyre gauges was told if you can push your thumbs into the sidewall then the tyre is too soft. Another trick is to to bike on an uneven pavement with sticking up slabs or a raised drain cover, if the tyre is too soft you will feel the edge or worse bang the rim, of course cycle slowly. Another trick is to sit on your bike and see if you can see the sidewalls of the tyre, if too much shows then the tyre is too soft-hope this helps.

Here in Scotland, well in my part we have the 7Stanes routes, what you would call wilderness trails. Most can be done with a standard bike. E-mail Richard  The biggest problem you wiil encounter is hawthorn hedges which seriously puncture a tyre often more than six at a time!!!! You are welcome to Dumfries and Galloway anytime!

General Discussion / How does one start racing?

Get a decent book on racing bikes and techniques then get a decent but not too expensive racer then see if you can find ways of making it go faster and perform better, what's called in my day competition spec then as you and your bike improves then join a racing/cycling club. Using a single speed bike for training and a rowing machine will enhance your performance no end. Tips can be got from me by e-mailing  Richard

Motor Caravan Magazine Review
"This is an ingenious, easy-to-use bicycle pump which uses a pull-cord system to inflate has an integral pressure guage attached which seemed very accurate and easy to read...all in all the Cyclaire pump appears to be very well made from robust materials and should give years of good service...I think it represents value for money and would make a great addition to any cyclists kit."
Conclusion: Very compact unit, easy to use, reasonable price.
Rating: Ease of use 4/5 : Performance 5/5 : Quality 5/5
The innovative Cyclaire" bicycle pump is a new British invention conceived by Julian Peck, and developed by his product development company Innoverce in Newcastle, England (UK).
Its nearly as small as a mini-pump making it very portable; and being so quick and easy to use, its almost like having a full-sized floor pump or track pump inside a six inch case!
Holding it in place with your foot, you stand up straight to use it, so its ideal for older or elderly cyclists, or for anyone with a bad back.
The revolutionary innovation of Cyclaire technology is that you just pull on a rope, cord or strap to fill the tires of your cycle rapidly with air, even to high pressure, which can be measured using the built in pressure gauge. This is a premium quality pump with a design that is rugged and robust enough even for mountain bikers.
Reliable and durable, this designer pump makes an ideal gift for the cycling enthusiast.
