Well Fall is in the air, time to get your trainer set up for the winter, cook your turkey for Thanksgiving, get your garden ready for winter, and get your bike out and ride on the nice days for some fresh air.  Fat bikes are great for all winter long.

This will by my last advice column month, so I am going to address the difference between schrader and presta valve tubes. Some tubes have a big valve like a car tire and they are called Schrader and most pumps fit on those tubes.  Some road bikes, hybrids, and mountain bikes have presta tubes with a skinny valve and you have to unscrew the top to put air in them.  Your pump has to have a smaller opening than the typical bigger opening.  If your pump does not work on the presta valve, you can get an adaptor for $3.00 or $4.00 that makes your presta valve into a Schrader valve. Confused just ask your bike shop staff to explain the difference when you are buying a tube.

Clearance sale 25% off regular price on all merchandise in stock including tubes stock up now for next year.
