That's a great start, but did you know that cycling gloves offer protective and comfy padding too? And, have you considered a jersey? Much more than a fashion statement, they wick and breathe to keep you dry, plus they often include long zippers for easy on/off and ventilation. And, they have easily accessed pockets in back perfect for your energy food, cell phone and wallet. Swing by and try one on!|
Converting Schrader Rims For Presta Valves - If you use a Presta-valve tube in a rim drilled for Schrader valves, you'll notice that the hole is too big. This isn't a problem unless you ride with low air pressures as some off-road cyclists like to. In that case, the Presta valve may creep as the tube shifts inside the tire. This can lead to a bent or broken valve over time. To prevent this miscue, install rim grommets, O-ring-like rubber washers that fit in the valve hole reducing its diameter to match the Presta's.
