A Race without Tire Sealant

Especially those who are in the midst of a race, the clock is ticking and every minute spent on replacing the tire adds an extra minutes onto your race time. Eventually, time wasted on replacing the tire could potentially cost you your championship.

Depending on the types of tire that is used during the race, different tire replacing procedure is needed if one experiences a flat tire. Generally, if you are using a clincher, replacing it wouldn’t take too long. However, time is still wasted. If you are using a tubular or tubeless tires, replacing it will take at least half an hour before you can resume your racing journey. You will have to either stop at the aid station to get your tire fix or awaits your support car to come to your aid. Meanwhile, you will have to go through the agony of seeing your opponents overtake you as you patiently wait till the tire is good to go. Despite resuming your journey, there is no guarantee that a second puncture wouldn’t occur during the course of the race. Imagine the frustration you will have to go through if such incident does happen to you.

In a nutshell, tire puncture is the most unpredictable event that one could imagine. A rider can have a flat-free ride for the entire season, or might experience at least one tire puncture throughout the season or even worst, twice or more within the same day. But by using TireCare Sealant, your chance of riding on a flat tire is drastically reduced. Even if the tire is being punctured, the sealant is able to seal up the puncture seamlessly without having the need of you stopping your ride and replacing your tire.

5 Things You Can Do To Maintain Your Bicycle

  1. KEEP YOUR TIRES PROPERLY INFLATED!!!

This sounds simple enough. However, every time we cycle through the streets of our country and we do that for a living, we see hoards of under-inflated tires.

Why this is needed:

Let’s start by mentioning that a bicycle with under-inflated tires can be much shower than one with proper pressure. Do you feel that your bicycle is slower than it used to be? Afraid it’s getting too old and is nearing the end of its life? Most of the times all you need to do is put some good old air in your tires. Do it! You’ll also greatly reduce the chance of getting a flat tire on your way home

How to do it?

Just buy a pump. You can also use the compressed air pumps that some shops or locations have. Just try not to overdo it. It’s quite hard to over inflate and blow up a tire using a normal pump (it can happen using a compressor).  The only times this can happen is when your tire is rather old and fragile and will probably break down soon anyway. Conclusion: Don’t worry (too much) about over inflating, just put some air in.

Note: Do keep in mind that there are 2 different valve types: Presta valve and schrader valve. A lot of pumps (the ones with two holes) are made to handle all types, but some older models will only work for one type.

 

  1. ADJUST YOUR HAND BRAKES

Why this is needed:

If you’re the proud owner of a bicycle with hand brakes and they don’t seem to work as well as they should, you might be able to drastically improve the situation in just a few seconds.

Note: A lot of the times more work is needed to insure a longer term solution, but simply tightening the cable can go a long way as well.

How to do it?

See this little screw thing? It’s made of two parts. Unscrew the outermost one (the adjustment barrel), while keeping the inner one (lock ring)  in place. Done. Won’t get your hands dirty either. Too tight now? Just reverse the process a bit until you find the sweet spot.

  1. ADJUST YOUR SEAT HEIGHT

Why this is needed:

We very rarely see people with seats that are too high, as that is usually uncomfortable and makes riding very hard. However, a seat that is too low will make you less efficient at pedaling, as well as hurting your knees and lower back.

How to do it?

For this, you’ll need a tool, but it should be easy to find/borrow it. Most bicycle seats can be adjusted with either an Allen key (size 5 most likely) or a spanner (size 13 most likely). Just make sure to first pull it out 2 or so cm higher than intended, to make sure there’s enough seat tube for it to be safe, then set it back to the intended height.

 

 

  1. DUCT TAPE AND CABLE TIE SOLUTIONS

Einstein once said that no matter how complicated a problem, there’s always a solution involving duct tape and cable ties.

Ok, we might have made that up, but we definitely are not exaggerating. Although a bit rough and perhaps not the most aesthetic solution, as long as you’re using good quality tape and ties, plus a bit of creativity, you can cheaply solve a lot of small issues, in cases which replacing whole parts might lead to a very expensive repair. We’ve seen some very creative uses. However, most of the times, these are successfully used to fix mudguards that are touching the wheel, or chain guards that are falling apart and making noise. Have fun!

  1. INFLATE YOUR TIRES 

Inflate your tires. Enjoy the ride like nobody does.

 

Happy cycling!
