    As far as the pump usage I find that a good case of trial and error is usually sufficient to achieve the correct filling and pumping action when using different valve types. There is a FAQ section where it may be possible to find a lengthly discourse by Nicklouse on the use of pumps and valve identification this is to be found in the techy section.

    Hope this is some use.
    I see what you mean, however it is hard to tell weather or not you're being sarcastic.

    I once had a bike with dust caps.

    Get fancy dust caps and they'll probably puncture your tyres instead. Just carry a pump.

  • Yes, I parked on a spaniel his name was Bamby, I wrote a poem about him.

    Bamby is my friend, I miss him very much,
    Bamby is my friend, of him I like to clutch,
    Bamby is my friend, he smells of open wounds,
    Bamby is my friend, let’s fill him with balloons.

    It was cold last night so I melted some cake and rubbed it over end of my feet (Toes).

    Please leave me alone now.

    Once I decided I needed red dust caps to go with the redness of the bike, so I ordered some KCNC red dust caps. I think I may have gotten them from ebay.

    Anyway the postman delivered them, that was lovely of him, normally they don't censored bother, I mean last time I went to collect anything from that place the stupid censored censored there told me that they hardly ever censored bother to deliver anything even remotely bigger than a normal letter to our uni halls because they're lazy cunts, and the packages or parcels never leave the mail room. They write out the cards in advance but frequently they don't bother leaving them so you have no idea that there's a censored parcel waitng for you at the censored delivery place the censored cunts. Actually once this was good because once my ink cartridges never turned up so amazon sent me some new ones, then when I went to collect a parcel the other week I got the old ones, they'd been waiting there for ages.

    I digress, back to the dust caps. So I made the foolish mistake of leaving them on my bed one day, then went to play hockey, then went to the pub and then finally went on to Oxygen bar in Leicester Square.

    So we get back at stupid o'clock, quite drunk, forgetting the dust caps are on my bed. Anyway after the nights activities I wake up in the morning and remember, then I think I was just like "Oh bollocks, not going to find them now" so I looked quickly then bought some new ones along with some other goodies. But they never turned up, bet they're stuck in the mail room at the post office but nobody left me a censored card the censored cunts.

    Right, technique, are you using schrader or presta, because there is a difference. Anyway basically it all involves you filling the innertube with cement at high pressure which negates the need for air in the tyres, and also if someone is caught fiddling with your tube, you can smash them in the face with the wheel

    Either that or attatch scalpel blades covered in blood infected with the bad aids onto your valve caps, and then when they try that trick again they will get a dose of the Mark Fowlers. Just remember to wear protective gloves when removing it yourself

    a mate of mine was fixing a puncture, and holding the dustcap in his mouth...

    at some point, someone made a joke, he laughed, then he swallowed the dustcap.

    We all laughed a bit more.

    Wait, dust caps are essential? censored , I've been riding without them for years, what will happen to me?

    im lead to believe that the offence of dustcapless riding results in the death by fatties punishment. basically you are covered in food, and put in a room with fat people, the enevtiable blood bath is deemed as punishment

    Did you know sheepsteeth's mum lives there?
  • i did wonder who the woman was who suggested this as a reasonable form of punishment. if it was sheeps mum seems like a pretty good punishment then (good in the sense of fun, rather than effective, cant be causing offence now can we?)

    I have one red dustcap and one yellow dustcap. The red one goes at the front, and the yellow at the back, so they look like real life flames when I ride really fast off kerbs, becuase I do street riding, cos it's cooler.

    On another note, I think the world be a better place if boobie milk contained chocolate.

    Want to trade a red for a green, I hear green ones make you jump higher.
  • bentesbentes Posts: 286
    no. green ones make you ride cooler.
  • angry_birdangry_bird Posts: 3,784
