Anybody else (particularly in Aus) notice that the nozzle for the air pump at service stations doesn't fit between the hub and the valve of the rear wheel, and therefore the rear tyre must be pumped at home?
Has anybody figured out a way around this?
I bought 10 of them from china. Gave some to friends. I have one in my riding jacket pocket and another is bluetacked inside one of the plastic side covers on the bike.
Rightly or wrongly I don't leave it permanently attached, too scared it will fly off or affect wheel balance.
Amazingly, the very next morning after posting that question (Christmas eve) I arrived at the train station to discover buses replaced trains most of the journey. Boo.
I knew the pressure in the rear tyre was low so didn't want to ride into work on it (60km).
Armed with the knowledge of what to ask for, I found a bike shop that was opened and picked one up.
I am going to figure out a way to connect it to a key ring.
I have the valve elbow extensions on all my bikes . I leave them there an have had no problem with balance or coming off. My XS1100 Yammy has had one on each wheel I bought her 15 years ago. If anything, that bike would have shown balance problems....but no..all good in the red zone in top gear
