Now that was a tad moist this morning. But, needs must etc. I had a bit of a tail wind helping me along to take the edge off the deluge, but hey ho, crack on! Annoyingly and unusually I had every traffic light on red and every junction I had to stop for traffic. So the whole pedal felt a bit stop start.
Yesterday’s pedal home went ok with absolutely nothing to report. The pre pedal check always done an hour before I set off from work could have gone better though. A flat front tyre, that was changed in record time, the puncture repaired and the spare tube fitted. I couldn’t find a sharp in the tyre either. I must at this point big up my pump. One of these.
Mine is the blue one, to go with my bike naturally, but these have tremendous pumping power, I got my front tyre to an acceptable pedalling pressure pretty quickly. Obviously they’re no track pump, but these are a quality engineered product. They feel quality and the operation is smooth as silk. Some nice touches are rubber covers on all the openings to keep crap out and a good bracket and strap to secure the thing to your bike. All in all the best mini pump I’ve ever had by a good long way, for road bike use with their smaller volume tyres you won’t be disappointed.
For MTBing go for one of these babies. As good as a track pump and eminently portable despite what some reviewers say!
Just for tidyness, I did my upper body stuff and the food management was spot on yesterday too.
