You are going to get a flat tire. The friends you ride
with are going to get flat tires. Everyone who rides a
mountain bike is going to get a flat tire. It doesn’t matter if your bike is equipped with tubeless tires, sooner
or later you will need a tube to get yourself back home
without a hike. When you purchase your new bike, add
four tubes to the order. You will use them.
So you spent a pretty penny on your new bike; now the
last thing we’d want is for it to fall over in the garage. At
$40, Feedback’s Rakk storage stand should have no problem supporting your new ride.
Bike locks are the number-one-selling accessory item at
a bike shop, but we are reluctant to suggest buying one.
Why? The ones that work best (and none are totally reliable) are way too heavy to lug around, and the rest offer
a false sense of security, as they are easily thwarted by a
bike thief. It is best to never leave your bike unattended,
at least not in plain sight. ;
It is important to apply chain lube to a clean surface,
which is why we recommend picking up a chain-cleaning system. We’ve had good luck over the years
with Park’s CG- 2 Chain Gang Cleaning System.
