Tire pressure on trainer(6 posts)

Tire pressure on trainerhokie_biker
Feb 4, 2004 2:42 PM
Just set my bike up on the trainer and noticed the tires were pretty low. (been snowboarding not riding) I pumped them up, so it's not really an issue, but what if I didn't? How important or how much hurt would it do to my bike? I figured I could really screw up my front wheel, but my back might be okay, especially since my trainer rides on the rim.
Why are you bothering to entertain this question?eschelon

Jump pump up the tire presssure to it's recommended rate and then ride on...what's the point of riding/training on flacid tires?
Please refrain from using the word flacid.....PEDDLEFOOT

Wasn't "Flaccidus" the name of a character in Monty Python's Life of Brian?
Anyone that goes through the extra step...eschelon

of spellchecking what they type here on the forum is sick and neurotic. Imgagine, since this forum doesn't have a built-in spellchecker, why the hell would any normal person go through the extra step of copying and then pasting their narration onto another application to spell check and then after making the necessary revisions, re-copy and paste the amended words onto this site? SICK SICK SICK...Kinda reminds me of that dude in the show MONK. Damn sick.
Dude, you don't need spell checker to check, just a brain nmthegarzacomplex
