In order for your bike to perform at optimal levels, it’s important it’s cleaned and well-lubricated. Lubrication ensures that moving parts aren’t as subject to excessive wear, and they’re also less subject to rust and corrosion.
Punctures are also a common problem, with most caused by pinch flats or small, sharp objects like glass, thorns or stones. Punctures are even more likely if you have older tires with depleted protection or low air pressure within your tires. If you’ve had several punctures in a row, it could be a sign that you are running the wrong tire pressure or that you have something in your tyre that needs to be removed such as a piece of glass or a thorn. Additionally, it could mean that you need to upgrade your tires.
Unfortunately, unlike lightning punctures often strike twice and if you’ve had one puncture, you’re likely to have another in the near future – right when you don’t want one! That’s why having a repair kit to hand makes a huge difference.
Punctures can happen at any time, which is where our handy repair kits come in.
