Tips To Avoid-Puncture

Puncture is common in urban cycling due to small pieces of glass or other on the road that works its way through the tire and punctures the tube.  Riding frequently around cities you can’t avoid punctures just by riding carefully and keep an eye on road. Puncture is the most disappointing thing of cycling for many bike riders. Then a question comes in mind that “If there is anything that can be done to help and avoid getting ones”.  The simple answer is, Yes it can be measured in several ways. Here are some of the tips which cyclist can use to reduce the chance of puncturing.

  1. Pump Up Your Tires

Every cyclist should have a track pump and should use it once in a weak to check air in their tires. On very smooth road a higher pressure will go better and faster. Heavier riders should have slightly more pressure. In winter or in wet weather the pressure should be reduced slightly to give a little more grip.

  1. Watch The Road

Stay alert towards, a pothole, stone or a piece of broken glass can ruin all the fun of ride. All of these can be avoided 90% of time, if you are looking for a safe and amazing ride. If you are in group it is very important to point them out to the riders behind you.

  1. Replace Tires When Worn Or Badly Cut

This probably the best way to help avoid punctures. Worn out tires grant people a series of multiple punctures. If your bike tires are worn out you greatly increase your chance of puncture. That also goes for tires that have bad cuts in them. It will surely give you regret at the worst possible time. Sometimes you will have a tire on for a week and then get a really bad cut in it. Don’t waste your time with it, just replace it.

  1. Check Your Tires

Once in a week, you must go through by your bike tires just to check them. That if there is anything stuck into it which caused puncture. Every bike rider must have its own puncture repair kit.

  1. Replace Inner Tubes Early

Inner tubes have a limited life. When you service your bike annually replace your inner tubes with fresh ones. Because if they cut or worn out, then it will surely give you uncomfortable ride which annoys you all time for your decision.

  1. Ensure Correctly Inflated Tires

If your tires are underinflated then you will surely taking a risk of pinching your inner tube and when you go over a pothole causing a puncture. Alternatively, over inflation will cause a massive blow out. A good rider must keep in mind the right inflation of tires and they are:

  • Road tires usually require 80 to 130 psi
  • Mountain bike tires usually 30 to 50 psi
  • Hybrid tires around 50 to 70 psi.

Pumping your tire up to the right pressure will let’s your bike roll quickly, ride smoothly and fend of flats.

  1. Consider Good Tires

Tires can be a personal thing. It your choice whether you want to opt for the expensive one or the cheap. Some tires brands have good grips but don’t have a long life while others have puncture less ride but they doesn’t give you smooth and comfortable ride. It’s good to use puncture resist or tube less tires.

  1. Don’t Ride In Rain

You might notice you get more flats in the rain. This is because rain acts as a lubricant and helps broken pieces of glass to go easily through the rubber of a tire. You also tend to find that waste from the gutter of the road. It’s that combination of rain and waste in the road that is the reason you tend to get more punctures in the winter.
