Do you have a presta valve adaptor, if you go to your local bike shop and buy one and then you can use a regular pump. If, you want something good, you can buy a decent pump at the bike shop and it will come with the adaptor. Road tires should be checked before each ride as air escapes, and low tire pressure damages wheels, just like a car, use a tire pressure guage made for bicycles or your good pump with take a reading.

How to Maintain a Bike's Tire Pressure for Good Performance?


Buy a good floor pump with a gauge (see "How to Buy a Bike Pump," under Related eHows). A small, frame-mounted pump is useful only for roadside repairs.

Understand that it's normal for most tires to lose up to 10 pounds per square inch (psi) per week. This does not mean you have a slow leak.

Look on the tire's sidewall for tire pressure recommendations. Don't exceed the maximum tire pressure listed.

Inflate your mountain bike's tires to 40 psi for dirt riding. You may wish to inflate your tires to 50 to 60 psi for city riding.


Inflate your road bike's tires to 100 psi for road riding. Some road tires have much higher psi ratings. However, 100 psi will provide a good mix of performance and comfort.


Inflate your hybrid bike's tires to 60 to 70 psi for city riding.

Check your tire pressure before every ride

How sohuld I take care from my bikes tires?


It is important to get your tires checked from time to time. Second only to wear and tear resulting from dirt,the biggest problem cyclist encounter is with tires. Many inexperienced cyclists tend to ignore the tires. This can lead to dangerous issues. Bicycles tubes are made from a porpus type of rubber called buytl rubber, which allows air to slowly seep out. If tires are not regularly re-inflated to proper volume, they will be to soft. Apart from being much harder to pedal with, soft tires also lead to rim, tube and bicycle wheel damage.Soft tires wear out much faster, and can pop unexpectedly,leaving you stranded. To ensure that tires are propely inflated, pump up road bike tires before every ride, and check mountain bike tires every week. Use an effective pump, ideally ,a bicycle pump with a build in gauge, and observe your bicylce manufaturers information about recommended tire pressure.

Why are road bicycles so much faster than hybrids? I commute in on a bog standard hybrid, and the guys on road bikes sail past me with what looks like minimum effort. I understand thats what they are...


Road bikes are faster due to their generally higher gearing and especially due to their narrower tires that pump to much higher pressures. Think of your bike like a boat. When you start a boat it gets up to speed and eventually is up on top of the water (what is called planing) and then you can actually reduce the throttle and mantain the same speed. In the same way narrow tire road bike riders can get their bikes up to speed and actually throttle back and keep the bike going at a similar tempo. The tires on a hybrid bike do not inflate to the 100-130 that many road bikes tires do. We used to have a pair of racing wheels and tires at my bike shop that we would let hybrid owners borrow. They could not believe the difference.

What size tire tube goes in a 700x28c Denali Bike tire? I installed a schwinn 26inch tube, rode the bike around the block, parked it in the garage and two hours latter, sitting in the garage, the tube blew...


700c tyres are bigger than 26".The tubes you need measure 700x28 (to32).This size is used in Hybrid style bikes.Make sure you get the same type of valve(Schreader are the same as car,Presta are narrower)or it won't fit the hole in your rim.
Make sure when inflating that the tube isn't trapped between the tyre and the rim.Only inflate to the pressure written on the sidewall of the tyre.
