Question about Cycling

1 Answer

I apologize for bothering the experts on July 4th (Happy Holiday everybody), but I need to prepare a bike for Vietnam Vets pick up tomorrow. I'm embarrassed to say that my problem is simply that I'm really not sure how to use the ActionJakon floor stand foot pump. I seem to be releasing more air than I'm putting in, and don't seem to have the valve properly attached to the tire's valve. Any hints please? P'raps I should add that because the bike has only been used a couple of times, the tires are REALLY flat. Thanks again...

You can buy a reducer that will fit the valve of your bike. Foot pumps are hard to use on racer/road bikes with thin high-pressure tires but if you have mountain bike that should be ok.

Happy 4th of July :)

Let me know if you need further assistance.

    Hi Halbrook:

    Thanks so much for your prompt response. 'fraid I can't get out today to buy a "reducer" as you suggest. However, when my husband bought the bike, the salesman said this pump was all set to use, and it does have the hose attachment with a lever head that has one small hole and a slightly larger one that fits the wheel valve. I just can't figure out what the lever is for. Anyway, if all else fails, and I can't get to use a neighbour's compressor - I'll just have to leave the bike out for pick up "as is"....

    Cheers, Marianne

I have some pictures in a Nikon coolpix 7600 digital camera and want to download or empty out the camera. Need an empty camera for my holiday tomorrow. How can I do that


Quickest and simplest way is to get a new memory card. If you are off on holiday tomorrow you won't have time to mess with drivers and cables to download to computer. Take out the old memory card and deal with it on your return. A new, empty one can be obtained at any camera shop, even while you are on holiday.

Cant get my computer to pick up camera


Try other USB ports on your computer if you have them free. You can also try reloading the driver for it. You cna check to see if your computer sees the webcam by right clicking on your My Computer and selecting Properties. You will then go to the Hardware tab and then select Device Manager. in the list you should see the webcam down in the USB area. If not you could have a faulty webcam or the computer can not see if because of a bad USB port.

Best of luck and have a Happy and safe 4th of July
