Example text

A small ‘ping’ bell will let walkers and other cyclists know that you are approaching from behind, without causing offence. From the walker’s point of view, there’s nothing more unnerving than to have a bike come up silently from behind and slice past within a hair’s breadth. Easily fitted to the handlebars, and make sure the bell is within easy reach, so you don’t have to take one hand off the bars to operate it. Speedometer Bicycle speedos are more for fun than function, but they do offer a wide array of useful information, including miles ridden, average, current and top speeds, clock, time ridden and even pedal cadence (how fast your legs are spinning).

Now inflate the tube a little, hold it up to your ear and listen for the hiss of escaping air. If you can’t hear anything, the puncture is a slow one, and the only sure way of spotting it is to immerse the tube in a bowl of water and watch for the telltale bubbles escaping from the leak. When you’ve found the puncture, mark it with a crayon and let the air out of the tube. Apply a thin layer of adhesive from the puncture repair kit, using the hole as the centre of the area covered. Leave it a little while to become tacky (not dry) then peel the foil from the back of the patch and press it on firmly, with the centre of the patch over the puncture.

If the mech is failing to shift to the largest chainring, you should need to unscrew the adjuster until you get that 2mm clearance. Finally, check the front mech is working properly by shifting between all the chainrings – it should shift to each one in turn, quickly and cleanly, and stay on the chainring selected. Adjusting the rear mech The rear mech works in a similar way to the front mech, pulling the chain across the cassette to shift to the next sprocket. As with the front mech, it will need degreasing and re-lubing periodically, as it depends on clean movement, free of dirt and grit, to do its job properly.
