I need a tire for my pts turbo 1000 recumbent bike and a manual to help me work the thing.


Here is a link with info on this and the link below is supposed to be a link for a replacement wheel/tire that will work.

http://airless-tires.typepad.com/airless-tiresorg/2010/07/pts-turbo-trainer-tire-11-years-of-sales.html


The Air Free Savannah Cruiser 27 x 1 3/8 (17-18mm) Urethane Airless Bicycle tire will fit the PTS Turbo Trainer perfectly. In Eleven years, not one person has ever sent one back, nor has one person ever said they couldn't get it on. The Savannah tire was designed to fit a bicycle, but it has the right height off of the rim and it squeezes into the rim perfectly and all owners report that they are able to ride again with out any problems.

Need to replace the tire of a baby stroller brand 'Mutsaerts. The size of the tire is 12-1/2x1.75x2-1/4


If it is a tire that requires a tube, just go to a bike shop. You may only need a tube if your tire is not worn out. Just be sure that there is nothing sticking in it, turn it inside out and with a gloved hand run it around the inside of the tire.

Hey im55830,

I was the production foreman for Pro Tec way back when, so hopefully I can help you a little.

As for the tire, depending on the actual production date and model, most of them were manufactured in house, so unless someone happens to have a supply stashed somewhere there is no direct replacement.

It is possible, and some of the first ones built did, use a normal tubed bicycle tire. We switched from those because under heavy use they did wear faster than we liked. So that is one option. I understand there maybe a website that carries solid tires that will work. Another option is to attempt to make a tire. The material should be available at a home repair store, if you took the tire in and tried to match the tubing. This is a last resort in my opinion but it is feasible.

Honestly I think I would try a normal tire or solid first. You should be able to remove the wheel and take it to a bicycle shop. It will need a liner to protect the inner tube. If you need I can walk you through removing and reinstalling the wheel.

As for the computer. For the life of me I can't remember the brand we used. I am guessing you have the handlebar mounted one with a small square head, as opposed to the fully computerised 2000 model.

Replacing it may be a bit of a problem. The computer set up was a stock bicycle computer. However we made a jumper wire to accomidate the length of the frame that plugged into the sensor lead and the computer mount.

As a stock item the sensor was connected to the mount so it involved cutting the wires, soldering connectors onto both the cut end of the mount and sensor. Then making another wire with connectors to run from under the seat along the frame and to where the sensor is mounted near the wheel. In theory any new bicycle computer could be used to replace the old one.

If you aren't up for that task, there's the possibility that there is some sort of wireless system available.

To install it you would need to lossen or remove the wheel cover to mount the other half of the sensor unit to the spokes. Depending on when the bike was manufactured this can range for very easy to a bit tricky.

Probably not everything you wanted to hear but I hope it helps

I need a PTS turbo tire.can you help me?


The company is out of business, from what i found out, but i read that someone manufactured there own tire using rubber tubing purchased at Home Depot coupled with a wooden dowel and then made more secure at the seam with rubber electrical tape. If you know anyone handy at fabrication, run this idea by them and they should understand what to do.

i hope this helps you out,

Tires


Tire wear varies depending on the compond of the tire to the road conditions to the riders style. All tires have wear indicators just like car tires. You can find where they are located by looking at the edge of the tread area, they normally are marked by a triangle or a small elephant in the case of Metzler tires. You can also measure your tread depth with a penny. Rule is if you can see the top of Lincoln's head the tread depth is less than 1/32 and needs to be replaced.
