Bicycle Bicycle TIRE ROTATING DIRECTION
to Bicycle TIREs designed to perform best under very specific terrain conditions. If, once you've gained experience with your new bike, you feel that a different Bicycle TIRE might better suit your riding needs, your dealer can help you select the most appropriate design.
Bicycle Bicycle TIRE Valves
There are primarily two kinds of bicycle tube valves: The Schraeder Valve andt he Presta Valve. The bicycle pump you use must have the fitting appropriate to the valve stems on your bicycle. The The Schroeder valve (the valve on a car tire) the valve on Bicycle TIRE. To inflate a Schroeder valve tube, remove the valve cap and clamp the pump fitting onto the end of the valve stem Tole air out of a Schraeder valve, depress the pin in the end of the valve stem
with the end of a key or other appropriate object The Presta valve has a namower diameter and is only found on Bicycle TIREs. To inflate a Presta valve tube using a Presta headed bicycle pump, move the valve cap: un recomscrew (counterclockwise) the valve stem lock nut and push down on the valve stem to free it up. Then push the pump d on to the valve head, and inflate o inflate a Presta valve with a Schraeder pump fitting, you'll need a adapter (available at your LBS) which screws on to the valve stem once you've freed
rapidly, which could cause the tube to explode. Bicycle TIRE pressure is given either as maximum pressure or as a pressure
range. How a Bicycle TIRE performs under different terrain or weather conditiond epends largely on Bicycle TIRE pressure. Inflating the Bicycle TIRE to near its maximum
mended pressure gives the lowest rolling resistance but alsoprod uces the harshest ride. High pressures work best on smooth, dry pavementVery low pressures, at the bottom of the recommended pressure range give the best performance on smooth, slick terrain such as hard-packed clay, and on deep, loose surfaces such as deep, dry sand Bicycle TIRE pressure that is too low for your weight and the riding conditions can cause a puncture of the tube by allowing the Bicycle TIRE to deform sufficiently to pinch the inner tube between the rim and the riding surface
A CAUTION: Pencil type automotive Bicycle TIRE gauges can be inaccurate and should not be relied upon for consistent, accurate pressure readings. Instead, use a high quality dial gauge. Ask your dealer to recommend the best Bicycle TIRE pressure for the kind of
riding you will most often do, and have the dealer inflate your pressure. so you'll know correctly inflated Bicycle TIREs should look and feel you don't have access to a gauge, some Bicycle TIREs may need to be brought up to pressure

The best and safest way to inflate a bicycle Bicycle TIRE to the correct pressure
is with a bicycle pump which has a built-in pressure gauge.
WARNING: There is a safety risk in using gas station air hoses or other air compressors. They are not made for bicycle Bicycle TIREs. They move a large volume of air very rapidly and will raise the pressure in your Bicycle TIRE very quick
