Mechanics Corner: Inflate Your Tires!

Don't forget to inflate your tires! Even without a puncture, tires do lose air over time. On a conventional bike it is easy to notice when your tires are low because you feel slow. With an electric bike designed to make cycling easier, it can be easy to forget to pump up your tires. So here is your friendly reminder, top off your tires at least once a month! First, check the recommended PSI listed on your tire (pounds per square inch/ tire pressure). The valve on your bike tire will either be presta or schrader, check out this link for more information. Pump up your tires to the ideal PSI and pat yourself on the back!
