Bike ponces only welcome if they don't speak in tongues
I'm also looking at the PX 50 & 60mm wheels. 60mm are like hen's teeth.
How do these disc-covers fare? Is it a good spend for £80, or am I likely to end up blown in to a field. I'm guessing Marshman could be a lot windier than Outlaw.
I find the 50s a handful in the wind. I also prefer my road bike's rim for lunatic descendng too!
I'm just a scaredy cat!
Regarding the wheelcovers, taking them off and putting them on requires you to remove the cassette. So you need tools for that as well as a screwdriver for the jackets screws. It takes me about 5 mins to do the job with the correct tools.
Regarding the Chinese wheels, I've ordered a set direct from the factory, awaiting delivery will let you know when they arrive what they are like quality wise in comparison to my others.
Thanks Pebble, may look to purchase in the forthcoming weeks then
Morning bike brains.
Please can someone help with my numpty question of the day.
Do inner tubes have a max pressure and if so how do I check?
I inflated my new tyres to 120 (it said upto 140 was okay) and then a tube blew up. It may have been 'pinched' as I had just changed the tube and was wondering if it would have been the extra pressure or my tube chagning numptiness.
Why 120 psi? The misguided belief that I may go fatser and get less punctures.
How do I work out the best psi?
The tyres in question are clinchers, Schwlebe Ultras (?!?) apologies bike aficionados.
Girlie purchase I am afraid.... the matching colour strip did it.
My first pucnture was bizarre and has marked the tyre. No raod debris, nothing in tyre, nothing to explain it. The good thing was how easy the tyre was to change after my last ones that were full of metal strips.
I didnt even cry, swear or take 3 digits worth of minutes.
That will learn me..........pick tyres with colour stripes to match and run the risk of more punctures.
Will probably take your advice on replacements in a few weeks.
