Some useful things for beginning Mountain Bikers what I think is most helpful to me.
- Setup your tires tubeless. I ride alot between 2-4 times a week. I was always getting flats. I was going through patch kits and tubes. Once I set up my tires tubeless I have only had one flat. Mainly because I should have put more Stans solution in my tires. I waited like 9 months to put in some new Stans in my rims. I'm going to check them like every quarter now. There are other one but this is one I have seen the most. If you have tubeless rims you only need only the the valve stems.
- The other thing that I like is I don't like pumping my tires up with either a floor pump or a hand help bike pump. I like the Ryobi 18 Volt pump with the presta adapter. Which I can set to the tire pressure I like currently using 27 in front and back. I just don't like pumping up manually. I like to workout but I don't want to have my workout being pumping up my tires. Any inflator will do. Also since I have Presta valves I would alway buy additional adapters I always seem to be losing mine.
