A track pump, even a mini one, will allow you to achieve full pressure on any tyre, including skinny road tyres. And thanks to the integral hose you won't flex or damage the valve whilst pumping. In fact they're so good, we now refuse to stock any pump without a hose!

Mini track-pump

Mini track-pump

£23

The best of both worlds: as small and light as a mini-pump, but because it stands on the floor like a track pump it's powerful enough to achieve full pressure even in skinny racing tyres (good for over 100 PSI), and because it attaches through a hose it won't flex the inner tube or valve as you pump. Reversible head internals allow you to switch between both types of valve. Complete with built-in pressure gauge.

A full-sized track pump (sometimes also known as a floor pump) is probably the easiest type of bike pump to use, being tall enough to use without bending over, and easily achieving full inflation even in high-pressure tyres thanks to the size of the air barrel. The downside is that it's too large to be portable: this is only a pump to keep at home or work. This one has a universal head that automatically works with any type of valve. Spare parts are available and it comes with a lifetime warranty for the original owner.

 
Puncture repair kit

Puncture repair kit

£3 each


Standard puncture repair kits do the best job of fixing a hole in an inner tube, but can be fiddly and time-consuming to use. Self-adhesive patches are quicker and easier, but sometimes don't form a permanent repair. Some people find it easiest to carry a spare inner tube, and then repair the punctured one once they get home.
We also stock everything you might need to go with your puncture repair kit including good metal tyre levers, spare patches, spare glue, spare pump hoses, and presta-schrader valve adaptors.

 
Inner tubes

Inner tubes

£4.00 to £8.50 each


We stock a full range of inner tubes including special sizes for folding bike wheels, older obsolete sizes etc. Standard inner tubes are are available in almost all sizes; top quality Schwalbe and Continental ones are also available in most sizes and have top quality valves and are more airtight so they require topping up less often. We also stock puncture-protected inner tubes in some sizes, which are filled with a special slime designed to seal small punctures as soon as they happen.

 


Jake's tip: not confident about dealing with a puncture? Ask us for a 15 min tuition session on replacing an inner tube or see www.jakesbikes.co.uk/videos
