Flat Tires: Tips for East Texas Cyclists from the Nacogdoches Bike Shop

Do you air up your tires BEFORE you ride? Riding your bike while your tires have low pressure often causes “pinch flats,” which means the tube gets pinched between the tire and the wheel. Save time and money by investing in a floor air pump that you use to air up your tires before every ride. At The Bike Shop in Nacogdoches (East Texas), we stock sturdy floor pumps featuring pressure gauges and fittings for both Schraeder and Presta valves.

Are you prepared to fix a flat while you’re out riding? You carry tools and a spare tire in your vehicle for a flat tire emergency, and it’s just as important to be equipped to fix a flat tire while riding your bicycle. We recommend a “flat pack” with the following items: spare tube, patch kit, tire levers, portable air pump or CO2 cartridges, and a seat bag. Stop by The Bike Shop and let us help you put together your flat pack. Don’t let your next flat put an end to your ride!
