I would like to convert to tubeless what should I know? Compared to using a humble inner tube, tubeless is certainly more involved, in terms of both initial setup and maintenance. Slow air leakage is hardly uncommon with tubeless and so you may need to top up to your preferred pressure every few days. Likewise, the tire sealant that helps to create an airtight seal and provide on-going puncture protection will dry out with age and must be replenished.

Patience is key when setting up older equipment and it might take a few tries to get it just right. Make sure you ride your bike often to keep your tubeless setup primed.

How do I know what size tire/tube I need? Check the side of your tire. The tire will be imprinted with a set of numbers indicating the wheel size and tire width. Your tube size corresponds with the outer tire size.

What is the difference between a Presta and Schreder Valve? Bikes typically come with one of two types of valves. Schrader valves are more common; they’re the same as those used on cars and are found mostly on inexpensive bike models. Most higher-end bicycle tires, however, are inflated with a Presta valve, designed specifically for bikes. Here’s how to tell the difference via Bicycle.com.

Do I need to replace my helmet? If you are in a crash and hit your head you should replace your helmet. Otherwise the government testing body in the US, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), recommends replacing a bicycle helmet every five to 10 years. The Snell Memorial Foundation, which also certifies helmets for safety, states a firm five years. And many manufacturers tell you to get rid of your helmet after as little as three years. More information available here via the NYT Wirecutter.

How often should I get a tune-up? Depends on how many miles you put on your bike, in what conditions you usually ride, and how well you do your own basic maintenance. For most people, we recommend at least a tune-up every season. Regular drivetrain cleaning and lubrication goes a long way in extending your service window and component lifespan.

How often do I need to lubricate my chain? Again depends on how many miles you put on your bike, in what conditions you usually ride, and how well you do your own basic maintenance. If you ride in rainy, wet road weather, you could lube your chain everyday. If you can see it’s dry, if there’s a bit of corrosion, some stuck links, or you hear an excessive mechanical sound, chances are it could use a lube. Only use lubrication specially formulated for bicycle chains please!
