Flat Tires Happen

A proper tool kit will save the day when you experience a puncture.

A proper tool kit will save the day when you experience a puncture.

Prevent Flats by using;

Quality tires

Innertubes with sealant

and always watch the road for debris and keep your tubes inflated to the proper psi. Check the pressure once a week when you clean your bike chain.

But in the event of a puncture, which happens to the best of us, keep the following items in your tool kit;

extra tube

tire boot

patch kit

tire levers

proper wrenches

frame or mini pump.

And remember to always "clean" the tire, inside and out, of debris or thorns otherwise you will only re-puncture that tire again! We have several awesome saddle bags in-stock at Queen City to carry all of these items in.

Happy Trails.
