Tyre Maintenance

Regular inspection of your cycle tyres is very worthwhile, checking for wear, cuts to the tyre and any splits that often occur. Maintaining correct tyre pressures will help in a number of ways. Firstly it will give a better ride and feel, plus your bike will handle and steer more easily. Secondly, it will help to prevent punctures. A firmer tyre will resist sharp objects from penetrating the tyres, so avoid any roadside repairs. Then lastly, correct tyre pressures will make the tyres last longer and stop any tyre wall cracking that happens when tyres are used with low pressures.
